Analysis Student Seminar   


Time:              Mon 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Location:        Math Tower 5-127
Organizers:     Jacob Mazor

The Analysis Student Seminar is an opportunity for graduate students to present on and discuss classical and modern results and techniques in analysis.


Geometry/Topology Seminar


Time:              Tue 4:30pm - 6:00pm
Location:        Math Tower P-131
Organizers:    Xiuxiong Chen , Marcus Khuri and Claude LeBrun

A traditional central focus of the seminar is global Riemannian geometry. However, many other differential-geometric topics, such as symplectic topology, contact geometry, several complex variables, complex algebraic geometry, and General Relativity have all been the focus of many previous talks. The lectures are intended for a broad audience of mathematicians, and we encourage our speakers to begin their talks at an easily accessible, colloquium-style level.


Graduate Student Seminar


Time:              Wed 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Location:        Math Tower P-131
Organizers:     Vinicius Canto Costa and Samuelsen Filip

The Graduate Student Seminar is a seminar by and for math PhD students. It gives students a chance to practice their math-talking skills and share about whatever math-adjacent topic they like! First years are not expected to give a talk but are more than welcome to!


Dynamics and Renormalization Seminar


Time:              Wed 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Location:        Math Tower P-131
Organizers:     Dzmitry Dudko and Jonguk Yang

A seminar on Dynamical Systems and Renormalization Theory.


Algebraic Geometry Seminar


Time:              Wed 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Location:        Math Tower P-131
Organizers:    Robert Lazarsfeld and Olivier Martin

Weekly seminar for the algebraic geometry group.


Student Differential Geometry Seminar  


Time:              Wed 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Location:        Math Tower 5-127
Organizers:     Paul Sweeney

The Student Differential Geometry Seminar is an opportunity for graduate students to present on and discuss topics and techniques in differential geometry.


Math Club General Body Meeting   


Time:              Wed 5:30pm - 7:00pm
Location:        Math Tower P-131
Organizers:     Math Club Executive Board: Mei Rose Connor, Brian Nelson, Romain Popescu, Ruipeng Zou, Adam Tsou

This is the General Body Meeting (GBM) for Math Club. We host guest speakers, both students and faculty, as well as special activities such as LaTeX workshops and graduate school panels. We hold collaborative activities with other clubs, and multidisciplinary activities such as math-related craft nights.


Geometric Analysis Learning Seminar


Time:               Wed 7:30pm - 10:30pm
Location:        Math Tower 5-127
Organizers:     Jingrui Cheng and  Jian Wang

For graduate students to read and present classical papers.


Low Dimensional Topology and Gauge Theory Seminar  


Time:               Thu 2:45pm - 4:15pm
Location:        Math Tower 4-130
Organizers:     Olga Plamenevskaya , and Saman Habibi Esfahani

We will be discussing recent papers in the area of low dimensional topology, gauge theory and symplectic geometry, which could range from chatting about new arxiv postings to in-depth discussion of some topics of interest.




Time:              Thu 4:30pm - 5:30pm
Location:        Math Tower P-131
Organizers:    Jingrui Cheng, Theo Drivas, Bob Hough, Robert Lazarsfeld

The colloquium is intended for a general mathematical audience, including graduate students and researchers from all fields of mathematics.


Analysis Seminar


Time:              Fri 11:00am - 12:00pm
Location:        Math Tower P-131
Organizers:     Christopher Bishop, Theodore Drivas, Bob Hough, Dimitrios Ntalampekos, Raanan Schul

The analysis seminar covers a wide range of topics which can broadly be interpreted as "analysis". These include, for example, Probability; Analytic Number Theory; Geometric Function Theory; Geometric Measure Theory; Harmonic Analysis; Computational Geometry; Metric Geometry; Quasiconformal and Quasisymmetric Mappings; Several Complex Variables; and Partial Differential Equations.


Seminar on Topology,geometry, discretization and algorithms


Time:              Fri 12:20pm - 2:20pm
Location:        Math Tower 4-130
Organizers:    Dennis Sullivan

Combinatorial topology and exterior algebra combine to create a spatial discretization optimally compatible with differential forms , multi vector fields and their algebraic symmetries. Computational algorithms related to nonlinear PDE can be naturally formulated. Other speakers will report on Navier Stokes and 3D fluid computations.


Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar


Time:               Fri 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Location:        Math Tower 5-127
Organizers:    Mads Villadsen and Myeongjae Lee

A learning seminar for students in algebraic geometry.
