NTSGrad Fall 2011
From UW-Math Wiki
Number Theory – Representation Theory Graduate Student Seminar, University of Wisconsin–Madison
- When: Tuesdays at 2:30pm
- Where: Van Vleck Hall B203
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.
