Based on a workshop on Special Values of Rankin L-series held at the MSRI in December 2001, this volume presents thirteen articles written by leading contributors on the history of the Gross-Zagier formula and recent developments. Topics include the theory of complex multiplication, automorphic forms, the Rankin-Selberg method, arithmetic intersection theory, and Iwasawa theory.

"The volume has an excellent array of topics and it is written by the leading mathematicians in the field. Each article serves well as an overview of the main concepts and definitely encourages the reader to pursue a deeper study of the field." MAA Reviews, Alvara Lozano-Robledo, Cornell University
