**Special Colloquium**

**Speaker**: Toby Gee (Imperial College London)

**Title**: Modularity of genus 2 curves

**Abstract**: I will give an accessible introduction to some problems in the Langlands program. In particular, I will discuss work in progress with George Boxer, Frank Calegari, and Vincent Pilloni in which we prove the modularity of a positive proportion of curves of genus 2.

**Date and Time**: Tuesday, February 6, 4:30 PM
