# Robert P. Langlands

Wolf Prize Laureate in Mathematics 1995/6

The Prize Committee for Mathematics has unanimously decided that the Prize for 1995/6 be jointly awarded to: Robert P. Langlands and Andrew J. Wiles.

**Robert P. Langlands**

**Institute for Advanced Study**

**Princeton, New Jersey, USA**

“for his path-blazing work and extraordinary insight in the fields of number theory, automorphic forms and group representation.”

Professors Langlands and Wiles share the Wolf Prize for their ground-breaking research in modern number theory which has led to the solution of long standing problems as well as defining important new directions.

Robert P. Langlands has shaped the modern theory of automorphic forms including ground-breaking works on: Eisenstein series, group representations, L-functions and the Artin conjectures, principle of functoriality, and the formulation of the far-reaching Langlands program. His contributions and insights provide a basis and an inspiration for present and future researchers in these fields.
