This semester Chao Li, Yihang Zhu and I are organizing a learning seminar on beyond endoscopy. The seminar abstract is as follows:
We will start with the classical analytic theory of L-functions given by Tate's thesis and Godement–Jacquet theory. Then we will survey the ideas of Braverman, Kazhdan, Ngô, et al. to generalize these theories to reductive groups, and the relation between these ideas and Langlands' ideas about beyond-endoscopy. We will then study the recent paper of Bouthier–Ngô–Sakellaridis that applies ideas from algebraic geometry to approach this problem.
Please email me if you would like to join the mailing list for this seminar.
The schedule is tentative and subject to change as the seminar moves along.
