Berkeley Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory Seminar
Spring 2020

This is a weekly RTG seminar funded by NSF and organized by Daniel Bragg, David Corwin, Martin Olsson, and Sug Woo Shin. This webpage is maintained by Daniel Bragg.

As of March 16, the in person meetings of the seminar are suspended.
For the remainder of the semester, the seminar will be held virtually, using Zoom.


Virtual seminar format

The virtual seminar will take place at 3:10-5:00 on Mondays using Zoom. A Zoom meeting invitation will be sent to the mailing list prior to the seminar.

As usual, the virtual seminar will consist of two 50-minute talks: a pre-talk (3:10-4:00) and an advanced talk (4:10-5:00), with a 10-minute break (4:00-4:10) between them. The advanced talk is a regular formal presentation about recent research results to general audiences in arithmetic geometry and number theory; the pre-talk (3:10-4:00) is to introduce some prerequisites or background for the advanced talk to audiences consisting of graduate students.
