Representation theory and arithmetic geometry |
In this talk I will talk about the relation between representation theory and arithmetic geometry. In particular, I will try to discuss several examples that connect representation theory and arithmetic geometry closely. Then if time permits, I will give a brief introduction to trace formula approach, which is the most powerful and promising tools in this field. |
