Event description:

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.
