The Langlands functoriality conjecture in the bisemialgebra framework
The Langlands functoriality conjecture envisaged in the bisemistructure framework is proved to correspond to the non-orthogonal completely reducible cuspidal representation of bilinear algebraic
A note on the Artin Conjecture
In this paper, we survey some recent results on the Artin conjecture and discuss some aspects for the Artin conjecture.
From Modular Forms to Automorphic Representations
This chapter sketches the passage from classical holomorphic modular forms f weight k and level N to automorphic representations of π = π(f) of GL2(A) and the consequences are sketched.
Enhanced mirror symmetry for Langlands dual Hitchin systems
The first part of this paper is a survey of mathematical results on mirror symmetry phenomena between Hitchin systems for Langlands dual groups. The second part introduces and discusses multiplicity
On a noncommutative reciprocity law
It is proved that the Hasse-Weil L-function of elliptic curve with complex multiplication coincides with an L-function of the noncommutative torus with real multiplication.
Introduction to the Langlands Program
This article is an introduction to automorphic forms on the adeles of a linear reductive group over a number field. The first half is a summary of aspects of local and global class field theory, with
Periods of Automorpic Forms
In this paper, we discuss periods of automorphic forms from the representation-theoretic point of view. It gives general theory of periods and some special and very interesting cases.

Stable Conjugacy: Definitions and Lemmas
The purpose of the present note is to introduce some notions useful for applications of the trace formula to the study of the principle of functoriality, including base change, and to the study of
Introduction. In modern terms the problem of construction of autoniorphic functions can be expressed most elegantly in terms of representations of adele groups as the problem of obtaining the

On Shimura’s Correspondence for Modular Forms of Half-Integral Weight
G. Shimura has shown how to attach to each holomorphic cusp form of half-integral weight a modular form of even integral weight. More precisely, suppose f(z) is a cusp form of weight k/2, level N,
Harmonic analysis and discontinuous groups in weakly symmetric Riemannian spaces with applications to Dirichlet series
In The following lectures we shall give a brief sketch of some representative parts of certain investigations that have been undertaken during the last five years. The center of these investigations
Automorphic Representations, Shimura Varieties, and Motives. Ein Marchen*
1. Introduction. It had been my intention to survey the problems posed by the study of zetafunctions of Shimura varieties. But I was too sanguine. This would be a mammoth task, and limitations of

The action of complex conjugation on a Shimura variety
In the case that a Shimura variety has a real canonical model, complex conjugation defines an involution of the set of complex points of the variety. It is necessary to have an explicit description
Automorphic forms on Adele groups
This volume investigates the interplay between the classical theory of automorphic forms and the modern theory of representations of adele groups. Interpreting important recent contributions of
