Offers an interdisciplinary approach to the ever expanding fields of representation theory and automorphic forms
Written by leading mathematicians
Tracks recent progress in representation theory and automorphic forms, and their association with number theory and differential geometry
Topics include: Automorphic forms and distributions, modular forms, visible-actions, Dirac cohomology, holomorphic forms, harmonic analysis, self-dual representations, and Langlands Functoriality Conjecture
This volume addresses the interplay between representation theory and automorphic forms. The invited papers, written by leading mathematicians, track recent progress in the ever expanding fields of representation theory and automorphic forms, and their association with number theory and differential geometry.
Representation theory relates to number theory through the Langlands program, which conjecturally connects algebraic extensions of number fields to automorphic representations and L-functions. These are the subject of several of the papers. Multiplicity-free representations constitute another subject, which is approached geometrically via the notion of visible group actions on complex manifolds.
Both graduate students and researchers will find inspiration in this volume.
