Seminar: Yale Algebraic and Tropical Geometry

Spring 2016

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.
