Langlands Program

A grand unified theory of mathematics which includes the search for a generalization of Artin Reciprocity (known as Langlands Reciprocity) to non-Abelian Galois extensions of Number Fields. Langlands proposed in 1970 that the mathematics of algebra and analysis are intimately related. He was a co-recipient of the 1996 Wolf Prize for this formulation.
