Seminar: Yale Algebraic and Tropical Geometry

Fall 2015

The Yale Algebraic and Tropical Geometry seminar meets biweekly on Thursdays for two talks from 3:00 - 4:00 pm in LOM 214 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, and Sam Payne.

Consider attending AGNES at Brown University on the weekend of October 2 - 4, 2015.
