TORONTO STAR | ROBERT LANGLANDS | MARCH 2015
|| THE CANADIAN WHO REINVENTED MATHEMATICS ||
Robert Langlands , a Canadian , is one of the world's great mathematicians . Langlands' universe is the outer limits of Pure Mathematics , a rarefied realm where abstract objects exist , infinity is corralled and symmetry reigns .
As a young professor at Princeton University , Langlands revolutionized the ancient discipline , discovering patterns in highly esoteric objects called automorphic forms and motives , and restructuring Mathematics with two dazzling theories .
They indicated what mathematician Edward Frenkel calls " the source code of all Mathematics " , and are credited with linking Math's main branches — Number Theory ( once called Arithmetic ) , Harmonic Analysis , which includes Calculus , and Geometry .
