Prerequisites:

Number Theory 1. 
Target skills and knowledge:

Some knowledge in commutative algebra and general topology. 
Examination methods:

Homework exercices will be handed in weekly, there will be a midterm exam and written final. 
Assessment criteria:

The homeworks will be worth 40% of the grade, the midterm exam 20% and the final 40%. 
Course unit contents:

The course will develop the theory of local fields following J.P. Serre's book: Local fields.
We will study: valuation rings, completions of valuation rings, complete discrete valuation fields of mixed charatcteristic and their fnite extensions, the ramification filtration of the the Galois group of a finite, Galois extesnion of a local field.
As an application we will study padic modular forms.i 
Planned learning activities and teaching methods:

Expositions on a blackboard. 
Additional notes about suggested reading:

J..P. Serre, Local fields.
H.P.F. SwinnertonDyer, On ladic representations and congruences between the coefficients of modular forms. 
Textbooks (and optional supplementary readings)
