Remarks on the local Langlands conjectures.

Abstract

The Langlands program, initiated in the 1960s, is a set of conjectures predicting a unification of number theory and the representation theory
of groups. More precisely, the Langlands correspondence provides a way to interpret results in number theory in terms of group theory, and vice versa.

In this talk we sketch a few aspects of the local Langlands correspondence using elementary examples. We then comment on some questions raised by the emerging "mod p" Langlands program.

Abstract

We explore and take advantage of hidden structure behind the binomial identity above. This will lead us through some basic representation theory of sl(2), categorical equivalences and quantum knot invariants.
