If you have a question about this talk, please contact HoD Secretary, DPMMS.

The Langlands program is a framework for understanding the deep connections between modular forms and arithmetic. Work in the Langlands program is often highly technical, but can have striking applications to number theory, a key example being Wiles’ proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem.

I will explain the basics of the Langlands program and some recent applications to classical problems in number theory which, at first glance, have no relation to modular forms.

A wine reception will be held in the Central Core, CMS after the talk.

All welcome
