Geometric Methods and Langlands Functoriality in Positive Characteristic (1549)
Méthodes géométriques et fonctorialité de Langlands en caractéristique positive
Dates: 11-15 January 2016 at CIRM (Marseille Luminy, France)
The aim of this workshop is to bring together people working on Geometric methods and on Langlands functoriality in positive characteristic with people more used to representation theoretic and automorphic methods.
For example, not many people master yet the theory of Shtukas, especially the one which allowed Vincent Lafforgue recently to prove the global Langlands correspondence in positive characteristic « from automorphic to Galois ». The hope is that it could be fruitful to bring these methods together with the themes of the Jean Morlet Chair semester.
One of the main aims of this workshop, therefore, is to review the recent progress on the Global Langlands program for arbitrary reductive groups in
Vincent Lafforgue will be a scientific committee member for the workshop, as well as one of the main speakers.
The workshop will be open for discussions and spontaneous additional talks,
