Fall 2012

Friday, 2:00pm-3:20pm

The Everytopic Seminar is an amalgamation of the Fellowship of the Ring Seminar and the Everyperson Seminar. The talks will be 80 minutes, with the first half of the talk given in a colloquium style, which will be accessible to faculty and graduate students from any field of mathematics, and allow everyone to grasp the content and significance of the theorem(s) being discussed. The last 40 minutes will be in the style of a research seminar, providing the audience with a deeper understanding of the results as well as some details of the proof.
