The present volume arises from a conference on the links between modular forms and transcendence held at the C.I.R.M (Marseille) from May 26-30, 2003.

It includes an overview of the few existing proofs of transcendence or algebraic independence of numbers coming from modular forms theory as well as more general techniques offering new perspectives (periods, Rankin-Cohen brackets, slope method, Hilbert modular forms). The book is divided into four independent chapters; although the most recent developments are studied, it remains mostly accessible to non-specialists.

A publication of the Société Mathématique de France, Marseilles (SMF), distributed by the AMS in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Orders from other countries should be sent to the SMF. Members of the SMF receive a 30% discount from list.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in differential equations and dynamical systems.
