Title: Solving Diophantine equation using modular forms.

Abstract: In this talk we will see the application of modular forms, as an example, determine whether a number can be represented by some given quadratic form. Firstly we will give a brief review on modular forms and the fundamental domain. Secondly we will establish a bijection between a root of a quadratic form and the ideal class group.
