MS Seminar (Mathematics - String Theory) (lecture 2)

Title: Langlands conjecture for function fields via shtukas
Date: Wed, Mar 15, 2017, 13:15 - 17:00
Place: Seminar Room B
Abstract: This will be a mini-course reviewing the work of Vincent Lafforgue, in which he proves the Automorphic->Galois direction in the Langlands conjecture. The key ideas of the work are closely related to those from conformal field theory: fusion and local-to-global principles. The main tool is the Geometric Satake equivalence.
