**Abstract:** I will discuss recent joint work with Soundararajan concerning the distribution of Fourier coefficients of half-integral weight modular form. We obtain half of the conjecture concerning the log-normality of these coefficients. I will discuss applications to the number of representations of an integer by a quadratic form.
