Title:Introduction to the Langlands programme

The purpose of the talk will be to present the Langlands programme as a set of conjectures linking together two (or even three) mathematical theories which are a priori completely different : - the theory of the finite separable extensions of a base field which happens to be a global field, - the conjectural theory of pure motives over such a global field, related to the previous theory through the l-adic cohomology functors, - the theory of automorphic representations of linear groups (or more generally reductive groups) over such a field.
