    gave Langlands correspondence an actual Idea-section.

    (Am in a rush and on a horrible wifi connection. Need to proof-read and add more links later.)

    We must add pointers to the excellent reviews of the state of the art given in the ICM talks by Taylor at ICM 2002 and by Michael Harrsis for ICM 2014 (already available from his website).

    (Myself, I am quasi offline until tomorrow.)

    I added those references, including the longer version of Taylor’s talk.

    I added a link to the IAS page on Langlands’ work, and moved the link to the page to one that is higher up in the tree.

    I also added a link to the specific page for the Letter to Weil, and to the page, which is not identical.

    I have expanded the Idea section by adding paragraphs on the other parts of the conjecture, which had not been mentioned in the entry before: the generalization to arbitrary reductive groups and the “functoriality” statement.

    What I find curious is that looking at it all after the dust has settled, it is not actually so much the correspondence between Galois representations and automorphic representations that the heart of the conjecture is about. Rather, the automorphic representations seem more a technical intermediate step in order to construct the automorphic L-functions.
