The fundamental lemma has been described as a gross understatement. Says Andrew Wiles, a Visitor in the School of Mathematics and an Institute Trustee, “At first, it was thought to be a minor irritant, but it subsequently became clear that it was not a lemma but rather a central problem in the field.”
It has been said that the goals of modern mathematics are
reconstruction and development.1 The unifying conjectures between
number theory and representation theory that Robert Langlands,
Professor Emeritus in the School of Mathematics, articulated...
