Representation Theory Seminar

Title: An introduction to Langlands' philosophy
Speaker: Professor Matthew Emerton
Speaker Info: Northwestern University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

I will try to explain Langlands' philosophy (concerning the relationship between representation theory and number theory/geometry) in fairly general terms.

I will then begin to discuss the representation theoretic point of view on classical modular forms. (This is a natural ``first example'' to consider in trying to understand Langlands' philosophy.)
