Graduate Student Number Theory / Representation Theory Seminar, University of Wisconsin – Madison

  • When: Tuesdays, 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM
  • Where: Van Vleck B113

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 should be aimed at beginning graduate students, and should try to explain some of the background, terminology, and ideas for the Thursday talk.
