Thursdays 4:00pm-5:00pm, B309 Van Vleck

The purpose of this seminar is to have a talk on each Wednesday by a graduate student to help orient ourselves for the Algebraic Geometry Seminar talk on the following Friday. These talks should be aimed at beginning graduate students, and should try to explain some of the background, terminology, and ideas for the Friday talk.

Give a talk!

We need volunteers to give talks this semester. If you're interested contact David. Beginning graduate students are particularly encouraged to give a talk, since it's a great way to get your feet wet with the material.
