Geometry/Topology: Graeme Wilkin.

Analysis/PDE: Mike Lauzon and Brett Wick.

Miscellaneous: Karen Acquista.

Instead of having a graduate student seminar for each discipline, we have formed a departmental seminar series that combines all major areas of interest in the department. Talks will rotate between algebra and number theory, geometry and topology, and analysis and partial differential equations. We also include talks from areas closely related such as the history of mathematics and areas in applied mathematics. The goal of the seminar is to provide an opportunity for the graduate students to share information that they have learned, be exposed to mathematics outside their field of interest, and provide an opportunity for the graduate students to give talks.

Seminars this semester will be held primarily on Tuesdays with sporadic special Thursday sessions; they are typically given by graduate students, with the occasional talk by visiting scholars and current faculty. Talks can vary from introductory material that is understandable by a first year graduate student to more advanced topics that older students and faculty may find of interest.

We would especially like to encourage talks about mathematics that arise in different fields of study. If you are interested in giving a talk, please contact one of the organizers above pertaining to the field of math that you would like to speak about. Below is a schedule for the current semester. Clicking on the title of a talk will take you to an abstract. You can also see the the talks that were given last semester here. Note: The schedule (including "No Speaker" days) is preliminary and subject to change.
