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.

Also consider attending AGNES at Stony Brook on the weekend of April 25-27.
