Time: 4:15 pm - 5:45 pm on Wednesdays
Location: 507 Mathematics
Dinner: Meet at 6 pm in the Mathematics Building Lobby
This semester Shizhang Li, Samuel Mundy and I are organizing a learning seminar on the Langlands program. The main goals are to understand the statements of the Langlands conjecture (over global and local fields) and the geometric Langlands conjecture, and to survey some of the known results.
Of relevance to this seminar is Michael Harris' topics course on the trace formula and p-adic L-functions, as well as the student algebraic geometry seminar (organized by Shizhang Li and Carl Lian) on perverse sheaves and the decomposition theorem.
Please email me if you would like to join the mailing list for this seminar.
The schedule is tentative and subject to change as the seminar moves along.
Note that Lecture 1 (January 18) took place in 622 Mathematics, but the seminar has since been moved to 507 Mathematics for the rest of the semester.
