Research Interests

Marty Weissman's research involves the interaction between representation theory, geometry, and number theory. Specifically, he works on automorphic forms and representations, and what is generally known as the Langlands program. Within the Langlands program, he is interested in modular forms on exceptional and metaplectic groups, representations of p-adic groups, and L-functions.

Teaching Interests

I enjoy teaching a broad swath of courses, including number theory, abstract algebra, proof-writing, "big science", quantitative literacy, and the history of mathematics.
