Examples

Structurally, the problem is this:  We have an algebra of observables together with an automorphic action of time evolutions on it (and possibly some symmetry groups).

I am not one to judge, but I would assume that Andy Schlafly doesn't understand what automorphic forms are, what the FL says, or have any standing to comment on a mathematical proof.

That got me slightly worried, so I asked whether they were understandable if you didn't know what an automorphic form was.

Her efforts combined tools as diverse as hyperbolic geometry, classical methods of automorphic forms and symplectic reduction to obtain results on three different mathematical questions.
