Quaternary Lattices, Modular Forms and Elliptic Curves

A common theme in modern Number Theory is to find non-trivial links between objects coming from very different places, by relating their arithmetic. In this talk we will (hopefully) see a surprising example of this, connecting the first and third objects in the title…using the second to bridge the gap. Time permitting, we will sketch the proof, motivated by a hidden 1.5th object (Clifford algebras).

(Based on joint work with E. Assaf, C. Ingalls, A. Logan, S. Secord and J. Voight)
