Modular Functions and Modular Forms
by J. S. Milne
Number of pages: 129
This is an introduction to the arithmetic theory of modular functions and modular forms, with a greater emphasis on the geometry than most accounts. Prerequisites are the algebra and complex analysis usually covered in advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate courses.

These lecture notes are based on some lectures given in 1980. The object of the lectures was to construct a projective moduli space for stable curves of genus greater than or equal two using Mumford's geometric invariant theory.

These notes are an introduction to the theory of algebraic varieties. In contrast to most such accounts they study abstract algebraic varieties, not just subvarieties of affine and projective space. This approach leads naturally to scheme theory.
