Robert Langlands: Far-Reaching Mathematics

Robert Langlands grew up in a small town in British Columbia where his father owned a building supply store. “When I was a child I liked to add and subtract,” says Langlands. “In our store, my mother worked. And I remember competing with her. We would tally lumber; she would do it on the adding machine and I would do it in my head.”
