Research output: Book/ReportBook


"For the past several decades the theory of automorphic forms has become a major focal point of development in number theory and algebraic geometry, with applications in many diverse areas, including combinatorics and mathematical physics. The twelve chapters of this monograph present a broad, user-friendly introduction to the Langlands program, that is, the theory of automorphic forms and its connection with the theory of L-functions and other fields of mathematics. Key features of this self-contained presentation: A variety of areas in number theory from the classical zeta function up to the Langlands program are covered. The exposition is systematic, with each chapter focusing on a particular topic devoted to special cases of the program."--Back cover
