# Collected Works of James G Arthur

James Arthur was born on May 18, 1944. He attended the University of Toronto as an undergraduate, and received his PhD at Yale University in 1970, where his advisor was Robert Langlands. He has been a University Professor at the University of Toronto since 1987. Here the papers are arranged by topic.
