This book provides an introduction, with applications, to three interconnected mathematical topics: zeta functions in their rich variety; modular forms; vertex operator algebras. Applications of the material to physics are presented.

A set of class notes taken by math graduate students, the goal of the course was to introduce some basic concepts from theoretical physics which play so fundamental role in a recent intermarriage between physics and pure mathematics.

Reviews Lie groups, differential geometry, and adapts the usual notion of linear tangent application to the intrinsic point of view proposed for physics. The theory of heat conduction and the theory of linear elastic media are studied in detail.
