Pure Mathematics Colloquium: Current Advances in Mathematics

The Pure Mathematics Colloquium is dedicated to different topics mostly in pure mathematics, and not limited to any specific areas. Therefore, it will be of interest of all faculty whose research may include algebra, number theory, topology, logic, geometry, and analysis. The goal of the Colloquium is to further promote research in pure mathematics in our department and to develop and maintain communications with outside experts about current advances in mathematics. We will invite mathematicians from our department and from around the world to deliver online lectures on recent progress of significance.

Spring 2021. On Zoom. Mondays every two weeks, 4:00pm-5:00pm (Central time).
