Seminar: Yale Algebraic and Tropical Geometry

Fall 2017

The Yale Algebraic and Tropical Geometry seminar meets biweekly on Thursdays for two talks from 3:00 - 4:00 pm and then again from 4:30 - 5:30 in DL 431. Afterward, we usually go to dinner with the speaker at a local restaurant.

Organizers: Asher Auel, Max Kutler, Yuchen Liu, Kalina Mincheva, and Sam Payne.

Attend AGNES at Northeastern on the weekend of October 13 - 15, 2017.
