Representation Theory ∗ Its Rise and Its Role in Number Theory

  title={Representation Theory ∗ Its Rise and Its Role in Number Theory},
  author={Robert P. Langlands},
By representation theory we understand the representation of a group by linear transformations of a vector space. Initially, the group is finite, as in the researches of Dedekind and Frobenius, two of the founders of the subject, or a compact Lie group, as in the theory of invariants and the researches of Hurwitz and Schur, and the vector space finite-dimensional, so that the group is being represented as a group of matrices. Under the combined influences of relativity theory and quantum… 
Motives and Infinite Primes
In algebraic geometry the notion of variety defined by algebraic equation is very general: all number fields are allowed. One of the challenges is to define the counterparts of homology and
Langlands Program and TGD
Number theoretic Langlands program can be seen as an attempt to unify number theory on one hand and theory of representations of reductive Lie groups on the other hand. So called automorphic

Hessian polyhedra, invariant theory and Appell hypergeometric partial differential equations
It is well-known that Klein's lectures on the icosahedron and the solution of equations of fifth degree is one of the most important and influential books of 19th-century mathematics. In the present
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
Geometric Endoscopy and Mirror Symmetry
The geometric Langlands correspondence has been interpreted as the mirror symmetry of the Hitchin fibrations for two dual reductive groups. This mirror symmetry, in turn, reduces to T-duality on the
TGD as a Generalized Number Theory
The focus of this book is the number theoretical vision about physics. This vision involves three loosely related parts. The fusion of real physic and various p-adic physics to a single coherent
Langlands correspondence and Bezrukavnikov's equivalence
This document contains notes from a course taught by Geordie Williamson at the University of Sydney in 2019-2020. The primary goal of these lectures was to give an informal introduction to what the
Splitting primes
Groups, rings, fields, polynomials, primes, functions : most mathematics students at the university have come across these concepts. It so happens that one of the basic problems of number theory can
Characters and Representations After 1897
Frobenius’ papers of 1896–1897 marked the beginning of a new theory, a theory that continued to evolve in various directions for over a half-century. Frobenius himself, along with Burnside, made


Simple algebras, base change, and the advanced theory of the trace formula
A general principle, discovered by Robert Langlands and named by him the "functoriality principle," predicts relations between automorphic forms on arithmetic subgroups of different reductive groups.
Problems in the theory of automorphic forms to Salomon Bochner in gratitude
1. There has recently been much interest, if not a tremendous amount of progress, in the arithmetic theory of automorphic forms. In this lecture I would like to present the views not of a number
R. Langlands shows, in analogy with Artin's original treatment of one-dimensional p, that at least for tetrahedral p, L(s, p) is equal to the L-function L(s, ?) attached to a cuspdidal automorphic
Yutaka Taniyama and His Time Very Personal Recollections
To write about Taniyama's time, first I have to emphasize that it was the mid to late 1950s, and the situation was totally different from that of Japan today, to say nothing of the comparison with
