The goals of the seminar are:
Speakers in the seminar will give lectures, related or unrelated to their research, that will be understandable by the audience with minimal background. We would like to invite members of Boston area Math, CS and Physics Departments to participate in this seminar by giving talks, attending talks, and suggesting possible speakers. Available funds (thanks to the support from NSF and Departments of Mathematics and Physics at Brandeis) will be used for honoraria for speakers and for refreshments before meetings.
Anyone who would like to volunteer to speak please contact the organizers, Dmitry Kleinbock or Albion Lawrence.
