Seminar: Algebraic and Tropical Geometry

The Yale Algebraic and Tropical Geometry seminar meets weekly on Thursdays from 4:30 to 5:30 in 431 DL. Afterwards, we usually go to dinner with the speaker at a local restaurant. For more information, contact Dustin Cartwright, Asher Auel, or Dave Jensen.

You should also consider attending AGNES at Boston College on the weekend of October 25-27, 2013.
