## EVENT DETAILS AND ABSTRACT

**Algebra Seminar**
**Title:** Gamma-functions of representations

**Speaker:** Professor Alexander Braverman

**Speaker Info:** MIT

**Brief Description:**

**Special Note**:

**Abstract:**

Langlands conjectures predict the existence of certain
remarkable functions (gamma-functions) on the set
of irreducible representations of a reductive group G
over a local field. In the talk I will show that the question
of construction of these gamma-functions reduces
to a purely algebraic problem (which, in particular,
makes sense over an arbitrary field). I will also show some
cases where this algebraic problem can be solved.
Some applications to automorphic L-functions will be discussed.
