% \head{Biographical Statement}
% \end{center}
% \noindent{}William Stein will contribute to this project in both a
% research and managerial role. Stein has been a driving force over the
% last 10 years in applications of computation to research on modular
% forms, $L$-functions, and associated arithmetic objects. As director
% of the Sage project (http://sagemath.org), he has experience managing
% working groups and working with undergraduates on a wide range of
% projects.
% \vspace{2ex}
% \noindent{}{\bf Support Statement:}
% The proposed project naturally fits in with my other
% NSF-funded research on the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, from
% which I will receive 2 months summer support during the next 2 years
% and funding for travel and materials (DMS-0653968). I have also
% received an NSF grant (DMS-0703583) to support one postdoc for three
% years, who will work on developing exact linear algebra algorithms and
% implementations for Sage. I am a co-PI on the Arizona Winter School
% grant (DMS-0602287); this is a yearly 1-week 120-person graduate
% student workshop in arithmetic geometry, whose upcoming topics mesh
% well with the themes of the current proposal (e.g., the next theme is
% quadratic forms, and theta series of quadratic forms are modular
% forms). I will also be directing graduate and undergraduate research
% that is related to this project during the academic year, not just
% during the summer. Finally, I am also applying to the NSF FRG program
% for additional money to support a postdoc and workshops.
