Abstract
<div></div> <div>In the first meeting of this reading group, I will begin with an overview of the statement of the geometric Langlands conjecture. Then, following&nbsp;Arinkin and Gaitsgory,&nbsp;I will outline a strategy of the proof in the case of GL_n. Some ingredients of the proof are direct translations of number theoretic constructions, while others are specific to the geometric situation. No prior familiarity with the subject is assumed. However, a&nbsp;number of technical tools is necessary for both the statement and the proof; in this talk I intend to list these tools (to be explained in future talks) and motivate why they are essential.</div>
