There have been spectacular developments in Analytic Number Theory in recent times. The main theme of this school is to introduce emerging themes and progress in Analytic Number Theory. Starting from basic concepts the school aims to cover : Equidistribution and Modular Forms; Maass Forms and Galois Representations; Applications of linear forms in logarithms; Recent developments in sieve theory; Zeta and L-functions. Some open problems will also be presented.
