Please join the WMI Colloquium in-person in B3.02 or on MS Teams via the below link:
Additional colloquia, titles and abstracts will be added as details become available.
Colloquia take place on Friday afternoons at 4.00pm, currently in a hybrid format in B3.02 and on MS Teams. They are directed towards a general mathematical audience. In particular, one of the functions of these colloquia is to inform non-specialists and graduate students about recent trends, ideas and results in some area of mathematics, or a closely related field.
