Essay on Tate’s thesis

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on June 14, 2010

Many years ago I wrote an essay on Tate’s thesis, which is now (finally) available here. This is the “baby case” of the global Langlands correspondence, and involves lots of interesting mathematics. Obviously there are many other introductions to Tate’s thesis on the web, for example this discussion on the blog of Terry Tao.
