"The Fontaine-Mazur Conjecture and Modular forms"


Mark Kisin

(University of Chicago)


The Fontaine-Mazur conjecture describes which p-adic representations of the Galois
 group of Q ought to arise from algebraic geometry.  Combined with the conjectures of
Langlands, it predicts these representations should arise from automorphic forms.
