### What is the relation between L. Lafforgue and Frenkel-Gaitsgory-Vilonen results on Langlands correspondence ?

What is the relation between Lafforgue's result on Langlands and Frenkel-Gaitsgory-Vilonen ? ( http://arxiv.org/abs/math/0012255 , http://arxiv.org/abs/math/0204081 ) Does one imply other ? If not ...

### Automorphic Forms on product of groups $G\times H$

Dear all, I have some difficulty in understanding the notion of automorphic forms on product of groups. Let $G$, $H$ be two reductive groups defined over a number field $F$. Let $\mathcal{A}(G)$ be ...

### The historical development of automorphic geometry

Background: Today the notion of automorphic geometry is often framed in the context of the Langlands program, in particular what is sometimes called the Langlands reciprocity conjecture. This is ...

### Finite field analogue of representations in same packet have equal central character

In Kevin Buzzard's recent question, a warm up question was: if two automorphic representations are nearly equivalent, then are the central characters of their local components equal? Working my way ...

### How does the conjectural Langlands group fit into the Tannakian point of view?

I've read that one way to formulate the Langlands program is the following: Let $\mathcal{L}_ {\mathbb{Q}}$ be the conjectural Langlands group. Then the category of semi-simple (continuous) ...

### What makes Langlands for n=2 easier than Langlands for n>2?

I must confess a priori that I haven't read the proof of Taniyama-Shimura, and that my familiarity with Langlands is at best tangential. As I understand it Langlands for $n=1$ is class field theory. ...

### Are the $L$-functions of $X_0(N)$ automorphic?

This question, like all of my previous questions regarding Langlands, is very naive. All $g\geq 1$ curves come from quotients of the upper half plane. The curves $X_0(N)$ come from quotients of ...

### Is endoscopy interesting in simply-laced cases?

Let $G$ be a complex algebraic group, and write $Z(g)$ for the centralizer of a semisimple element $g$ in $G$. I will assume $G$ is simply connected, in which case $Z(g)$ is connected. Let $G^\vee$ ...

### Why is Class Field Theory the same as Langlands for GL_1?
