This is a joint seminar of the Center for Advanced Studies at Skoltech and International laboratory for Mirror Symmetry and Automorphic Forms offered by myself in the 2019-2020 academic year. The lectures are scheduled on **Wednesday 19:00, room 249, Skoltech (1 Nobel Street, red building; public transport)**. Telegram group of the seminar.

Automorphic forms serve as a systematic common generalization of various diverse objects such as Hecke characters and modular (or Hilbert, Mass, Siegel, ...) forms. They appear in number theory, representation theory, topology, harmonic analysis and mathematical physics. Most prominently, automorphic forms conjecturally provide a representation-theoretic style description of Galois representations of local and global fields via Langlands correspondence. Although Langlands conjectures are only partially proved at the moment, there are plenty of unconditional results purely on the automorphic side, interesting in their own right. In this seminar we will study these results and some known cases of Langlands correspondence.

During the first part of the course we will concentrate on the basic structure theory of complex automorphic forms and representations. In the second part we will move on to a more advanced topics and arithmetic applications, such as the local Langlands correspondence for $\mathrm{GL}_n$ and $p$-adic automorphic forms (if we have enough time).
