Abstract: An interesting question in number theory is: What integers can be represented by integral binary quadratic forms? It turns out that this question is intimately related with closed geodesics on ?\G, where ?=PSL2(Z) and G=PSL2(R). We will discuss this connection, and see how continued fractions are key in order to relate these concepts.
