Seminar: Yale Algebraic and Tropical Geometry

Fall 2014

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, José González, Nathan Kaplan, and Sam Payne.

Consider attending AGNES at the University of Pennsylvania on the weekend of October 31 - November 2, 2014.
