Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most creative mathematicians of our times, Vladimir Drinfeld received the Fields Medal in 1990 for his groundbreaking contributions to the Langlands program and to the theory of quantum groups. These ten original articles by prominent mathematicians, dedicated to Drinfeld on the occasion of his 50th birthday, broadly reflect the range of Drinfeld's own interests in algebra, algebraic geometry, and number theory. Contributors: A. Eskin, V.V. Fock, E. Frenkel, D. Gaitsgory, V. Ginzburg, A.B. Goncharov, E. Hrushovski, Y. Ihara, D. Kazhdan, M. Kisin, I. Krichever, G. Laumon, Yu.I. Manin, A. Okounkov, V. Schechtman, and M.A. Tsfasman.

Synopsis:

This volume of invited articles by several outstanding mathematicians in algebra, algebraic geometry, and number theory is  dedicated to Vladimir Drinfeld on the occasion of his 50th birthday. These surveys and original research articles broadly reflect the range of Drinfeld's work in these areas, especially his profound contributions to the Langlands program and mathematical physics. Contributors include: V.V. Fock, E. Frenkel, D. Gaitsgory, A.B. Goncharov, E. Hrushovski, Y. Ihara, D. Kazhdan, M. Kisin, I. Krichever, G. Laumon, Yu. Manin, and V. Schechtmann.
