Dennis Gaitsgory received his PhD from Tel Aviv University in 1997 under the supervision of Joseph Bernstein. His thesis, *Automorphic sheaves and Eisenstein series*, develops ideas of A. Beilinson, V. Drinfeld and G. Laumon that deal with the geometrization of the theory of automorphic forms. Dennis was appointed as a Clay Research Fellow for a term of four years beginning 2000.

Manjul Bhargava received his PhD from Princeton University in 2001 under the supervision of Andrew Wiles. His research interests span algebraic number theory, combinatorics, and representation theory. Bhargava’s research includes fundamental contributions to the representation theory of quadratic forms and to *p*-adic analysis, as well

as to the representation theory of quadratic forms, to interpolation problems and *p*-adic analysis, and to the study of ideal class groups of algebraic number fields. Manjul was appointed as a Clay Research Fellow for a term of five years beginning July 2000.

The 2005 Clay Research Award was made to Manjul for his discovery of new composition laws for quadratic forms and for his work on the average size of ideal class groups.

These videos document the Institute’s landmark Paris millennium event which took place on May 24-25, 2000, at the Collège de France. On this occasion, CMI unveiled the “Millennium Prize Problems,” seven mathematical quandaries that have long resisted solution. The announcement in Paris honored the 100-year anniversary of David Hilbert’s address of 1900 to the International Congress of Mathematicians in Paris, in which he outlined 23 mathematics problems that set the tone for much 20th century mathematical research.
