Galois Representations and Automorphic Forms
During the 2010-2011 academic year, Richard Taylor of Harvard University will be the School's Distinguished Visiting Professor. He will lead a program on Galois Representations and Automorphic Forms.
The program will embrace all aspects of the conjectural relationship between automorphic forms and Galois representations: functoriality and Langlands' conjectures, analytic approaches (in particular the trace formula), algebraic approaches (those growing out of Wiles's work on Fermat's Last Theorem), $p$-adic Hodge theory (the so called $p$-adic Langlands Program) and applications to other problems in number theory.
There will be a weekly seminar and a week-long workshop during the week of March 21, 2011, highlighting recent developments connected with the program.
