Pure Maths Colloquium: A gentle introduction to the global Langlands correspondence

Presented by Teruyoshi Yoshida, University of Cambridge

22 October 2012 16:00 in CM221

The global Langlands correspondence is a conjectural bijection
between isomorphism classes of three different kinds of objects over number
fields: Galois representations, automorphic representations for GL(n),
and pure motives. They are all parametrised by a sequence of numbers
indexed by primes (L-functions).
I will define these objects as much as possible, and give an overview
of some known cases.
