Robert P. Langlands was born in New Westminster, British Columbia, in
1936. He graduated from the University of British Columbia
with an undergraduate degree in 1957 and an M.Sc. in
1958, and from Yale University with a Ph.D. in 1960.
He has held faculty positions at Princeton University
and Yale University, and is currently a Professor at the
for Advanced Study in Princeton.
He has won several awards
recognizing his outstanding contributions to the
theory of automorphic forms, among them an honorary
degree from the University of British Columbia in 1985.
Looking forward to eventual publication of his collected works,
Professor Langlands is cooperating with us
in providing on our site a large selection from
his professional correspondence and
previously unpublished work, as well as an almost complete
collection of all of his published work.
This material is being put into TeX at the Institute
in Princeton and will appear here as it becomes ready.
We would like to thank Dorothea Phares,
Marietta Chiorello, Elly Gustafsson, Michelle Huguenin,
and Carol Warfield
of the staff at the Institute, as well
as Mark Goresky, for helping with this project.
Inevitably, the topics into which we have organized
material overlap somewhat.
Early work on the trace formula
Representation theory of real groups
Eisenstein series and automorphic forms
First tests and first consequences of functoriality
A list of Langlands' papers, notes, and books
In time we hope to add comments on these items
to place them in historical context.
