Leslie Saper : Quadratic Reciprocity from Euler to Langlands
The law of quadratic reciprocity was conjectured by Euler and first proved in full generality by Gauss. I will not prove quadratic reciprocity but I will discuss it in the context of the general reciprocity law due to Emil Artin. I will then explain how Langlands's program is a nonabelian generalization of this. If there is time, I will indicate how my work fits into this program.
