"Des jeunes antisémites, ca existe donc, cela? Il y a donc des cerveaux neufs, des âmes neuves, que cet imbécile poison a déjà déséquilibrés? Quelle tristesse, quelle inquiétude, pour le vingtième siècle qui va s'ouvrir!"

Emile Zola, Lettre à la jeunesse: l'affaire Dreyfus.



"Si donc l’antisémite est, comme chacun l’a pu voir, imperméable aux raisons et à l’expérience, ce n’est pas que sa conviction soit forte ; mais plutôt sa conviction est forte parce qu’il a choisi d’abord d’être imperméable."

Jean-Paul Sartre, Réflexions sur la question juive.



"Je sais bien que les quelques jeunes gens qui manifestent ne sont pas toute la jeunesse, et qu'une centaine de tapageurs, dans la rue, font plus de bruit que dix mille travailleurs studieusement enfermés chez eux. Mais les cent tapageurs ne sont-ils pas déjà de trop, et quel symptôme affligeant qu'un pareil mouvement, si restreint qu'il soit, puisse à cette heure se produire au Quartier Latin!"

Emile Zola, Lettre à la jeunesse: l'affaire Dreyfus.



Research Interests

Algebraic number theory, with a special emphasis on elliptic curves, modular forms, and their associated L-functions.


Editorial Activities

I am currently on the editorial board of the following journals:

Commentarii Mathematici Helvetici, the main journal of the Swiss Mathematical Society.

Journal of the AMR, the main journal of the Association for Mathematical Research.

Transactions of the American Mathematical Society.

Memoirs of the American Mathematical Society.

Annales Mathématiques Blaise Pascal, a mathematical journal published by the Department of Mathematics of the Université Blaise Pascal in Clermont-Ferrand.

Comptes Rendus Mathématiques de la Société Royale du Canada, the main scientific publication of the Canadian Royal Society.

Pure and Applied Mathematics Quarterly, a journal published by International Press.

I encourage you to submit your number theory articles to these journals!
