Abstract         : Starting from classical congruences of Bernoulli numbers, we will motivate and explain the construction of p-adic families of modular forms. The existence of these families has had numerous applications in number theory to the construction of p-adic zeta functions and the p-adic Langlands program.

 

We will describe the families constructed by Serre, Katz, and Coleman-Mazur. We will illustrate these concepts by examples and give some applications.
