NTSGrad Spring 2020
Graduate Student Number Theory / Representation Theory Seminar, University of Wisconsin – Madison
- When: Tuesdays, 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM
- Where: Online, at Webex
The purpose of this seminar is to have a talk on each Tuesday by a graduate student to help orient ourselves for the Number Theory Seminar talk on the following Thursday. These talks are generally aimed at beginning graduate students, and try to explain some of the background, terminology, and ideas for the Thursday talk.
This semester, we will be watching lectures of the VaNTAGe Seminar, every other Tuesday (starting January 21st). VaNTAGe is an online seminar on open conjectures in Number Theory. The schedule can be found on the website. The watch-party will be held in 901 VV at Noon.
