DESCRIPTION:Title:\n\n Serre's conjecture on modular forms \n\n \n\nAbstrac
t:\n\nThe Langlands program is a far-reaching set of conjectural connectio
ns between analytic objects (e.g.\, modular forms) and arithmetic objects
(e.g.\, elliptic curves). In 1987\, Serre made a bold conjecture about mod
ular forms in the spirit of a characteristic p Langlands program. Serre's
conjecture (now a Theorem due to Khare-Wintenberger and Kisin) has a numbe
r of interesting consequences including Fermat's Last Theorem. This talk
will begin with overview of Serre's original conjecture (the two dimension
al case). There are now a number of generalizations of this conjecture to
higher dimensions. After introducing these higher dimensional analogues\,
I will describe recent progress towards the weight part of these conjectur
es. This is joint work with Daniel Le and Bao V. Le Hung.\n
