 This book discusses the connection between CalabiYau threefolds and modular forms. It presents the general theory and brings together the known results. Hundreds of new examples are given of rigid and nonrigid CalabiYau threefolds, and the construction of correspondences between them leads to conjectures about the modular forms involved. The author has compiled tables of newforms of weight four and large levels, which are included in the appendix. The great variety of new examples as well as the tables of newforms makes this volume a valuable resource for graduate students and researchers interested in algebraic geometry and arithmetic algebraic geometry. Titles in this series are copublished with The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada). Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic geometry and arithmetic algebraic geometry. Reviews "The present monograph is a nice addition to the existing literatures on arithmetic of CalabiYau varieties, and it will serve as a friendly introduction to graduate students as well as to researchers, who wish to learn about the arithmetic aspects of CalabiYau varieties."
