Venue: Ramanujan Hall

Title: From Moonshine to Mock Moonshine

Abstract : We begin with a review of moonshine for sporadic groups
indicating the
current
status of this active new area of research which intersects several fields
in mathematics
and theoretical physics. We then discuuss the relation of black hole
quantum gravity and
mock modular forms originally introduced as mock theta functions by
Ramanujan.
