Description

One of the most fascinating and important developments in mathematics in the last 50 years is the "Langlands Program", a collection of ideas that provides a grand unification of many areas of mathematics. Frenkel's celebrated book "Love and Math", now translated into many languages, provides an extraordinarily accessible overview of the deep mathematics involved. The lectures will be a great opportunity to hear the story of these ideas from a great expositor, and participate in a discussion of them. Covering topics from the basic ideas of symmetries and Fermat's last theorem to the recent works connecting the Langlands Program to dualities in quantum physics, the lectures will be accessible to undergraduate students.
