Host: Tamas Hausel


Location: Building West, Big Seminar Room
Time: Thursdays, 1pm-3pm
(* =unusual time/place, check invitation file)


The seminar has a 2 hour format. The first hour is asked to be introductory aimed at graduate students. The second part, after a break, could be more technical. In particular it makes sense to come only for the first introductory part.
