MoMath Winton Power Series

Calling all mathematicians and math professionals: thanks to the generosity of Winton Capital Management, MoMath has a lecture series with you in mind. The MoMath Winton Power Series is targeted at a mathematically sophisticated audience, and provides a forum for top mathematicians to share a significant topic or discovery they are excited about. Each presentation will be followed by a question and answer session and an informal reception. For further information, call the National Museum of Mathematics at (212) 542-0566 or e-mail functions@momath.org.

Primes and Equations
2014 October 5 at 5:30 PM — Richard Taylor

For over 50 years, one of the most vibrant areas of mathematical research has been the Langlands Progam, which posits a remarkable connection between the study of algebraic equations and the study of symmetries of certain non-Euclidean spaces.  Breakthrough Prize winner Richard Taylor will give a flavor of the Langlands Program in relatively concrete terms: namely, predictions about the number of solutions to polynomial congruences.  Applications to Diophantine equations will illustrate and motivate the ideas presented.
The National Museum of Mathematics gratefully acknowledges the support of Winton Capital Management, which makes this public presentation series possible.
