NC2W01 - Making the bridge: Exploring new connections between number theory and physics

In this series of talks, I will provide a brief introduction to the theta correspondence for non-specialists. The classical theory of theta functions is one of the most basic parts of the theory of modular forms. Its reformulation in terms of representation theory reveals a lot of not previously evident structure and, for example, allows one to transfer automorphic representations between groups in a dual pair. I will describe this theta correspondence and the (regularized) Siegel-Weil formula and Rallis inner product formula which link the non-vanishing of the correspondence to poles and values of Langlands L-functions.
