Title: Vector-valued modular forms and CM Jacobians
Abstract: In this talk, I will explain how vector-valued modular forms
may be used to compute explicitly periods of modular curves, and how the
application of this technique to noncongruence subgroups of the modular
group should soon yield new examples of Jacobians of modular curves with
complex multiplication (i.e., CM Jacobians).
