As the subject line says, I’m looking at what the next couple of letters should be for my 2020 A-to-Z. Please put in a comment here with something you think it’d be interesting to see me explain. I’m up for most any topic with some mathematical connection, including biographies.

Please if you suggest something, let me know of any project that you have going on. I’m happy to share links to other blogs, teaching projects, YouTube channels, or whatever else you have going on that’s worth sharing.

    L: Langlands program

    Personally, I am not entirely familiar with the above very advanced concepts, but it would be very interesting to have a brief “layman’s terms” introduction to the above!
