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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
