Berkeley Number Theory Seminar, Fall 2017

This seminar is organized by Ken Ribet, Sug Woo Shin and Xinyi Yuan. The weekly seminar will contain two types of talks. The major type will be a series of coherent talks given by local people (mostly graduate students) around a fixed central topic. Another type will be the usual seminar talks given by invited speakers with (rather random) topics determined by them, which we will call special talks.

Central topic

The fixed central topic for this semester is Introduction to the Langlands Program. For a plan of the series, please click here. The first meeting of the seminar will be on Sep 6. Please come to volunteer a talk.
