Abstract

In this talk I will define algebraic automorphic forms, first defined by Gross, which are objects that are conjectured to have Galois representations attached to them. I will explain how this fits into the general picture of the Langlands program and, giving some examples, briefly describe one method of proving certain cases of the conjecture.
