The lecture series will start with a brief introduction to rigid analytic geometry. I will then introduce modular curves from various viewpoints (complex analytic, algebraic, and padic analytic) and use them to give a geometric definition of padic and overconvergent modular forms and Hecke operators. I will next show how to use the padic geometry of the modular curves towards padic analytic continuation of overconvergent modular forms. Finally, I will demonstrate an application of these results to modularity of certain Galois representations which can itself be used to prove certain cases of the Artin conjecture. If time allows, I would explain briefly how these ideas extend to higher dimensions by illustrating the easier case of Hilbert modular surfaces.
