Lecture and Seminar Programme

 

Details of seminar groups, times, and locations can be found on the Seminar Groups page. Please note that lecture notes/powerpoints will be made available from links on this page after each Tuesday lecture. They should help you as you explore topics and begin research for your papers -- but of course they are no substitute for attending the lectures themselves.
