Solving Maxwell’s equations governing electromagnetic wave

Classically, mathematicians observed parallels between algebraic number theory and the theory of Riemann surfaces. The geometric Langlands program grew from these analogies, seeking to find geometric avatars of arithmetic phenomena. I will try to explain some of these classical ideas underpinning geometric Langlands, and then describe outcomes of some projects of mine from recent years that speak to them.
