Berkeley Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory Seminar, Spring 2018

3:10-5:00 Monday, 748 Evans


This is a weekly RTG seminar funded by NSF and organized by Martin Olsson, Sug Woo Shin and Xinyi Yuan.


The seminar is scheduled at 3:10-5:00 every Monday. It consists 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.

Schedule (3:10-5:00pm Monday, 748 Evans)
