Rankin-Selberg L-functions

What do you get when you cross an Eisenstein series with a cuspform? An L-function! Since there's no modular forms course this semester, I will try to squeeze in an entire semester's course on modular forms during the first part of this talk, and then I'll explain the Rankin-Selberg method of establishing analytic continuation of certain L-functions.
