|Title:||The relative Langlands program|
|Seminar:||Algebra and Number Theory Seminar|
|Speaker:||Yiannis Sakellaridis, Rutgers (Newark)|
|I will give an overview of what could now be termed the "relative Langlands
program". This program, which is still under development, builds on the
work of many experts in order to provide a conjectural description of the
"local" and the "automorphic" spectra of spherical (e.g. symmetric)
varieties in terms of a Langlands dual group attached to them. This has
applications to functoriality, and to relations between periods and
L-functions such as the ones suggested by the Gan-Gross-Prasad conjectures.
The special case where a reductive group is considered as a symmetric
variety should recover the usual Langlands conjectures.|
