Student Algebra Seminar      Fall 2014/Spring 2015

Location: For the fall semester, the student algebra seminar meets every Wednesday from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm in PHSC 416.
For the spring semester, we meet every Friday fron 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm in PHSC 1025.

Goals: This year we aim for a wide range of topics in different areas. We achieve this by inviting speakers from different areas to give a talk. Speakers usually assume that the audience has no background knowledge associated to the talk given. We hope that in this way, all graduate students can benefit from learning different areas from each other. For more information, contact Jieru Zhu.
