Location:        Math Tower P-131
Organizers:   Claude LeBrunXiuxiong Chen and  Marcus Khuri

Traditional departmental mainstay. Often focuses on differential geometry, but frequently touches on differential topology, algebraic geometry, and other mathematical topics of a geometric flavor.


Graduate Student Seminar

Time:              Wed 1:00pm - 2:30pm
Location:        Math Tower P-131
Organizers:    Jacob Mazor and Myeongjae Lee

This seminar is an opportunity for any graduate student to practice giving a good talk on any topic they find particularly interesting. We will have an array of speakers from all years of graduate study, and topics will cover a broad range of Mathematics.


Dynamics Learning Seminar

Analysis, probability, geometric measure theory, analytic number theory etc.



Time:              Thu 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Location:        Math Tower P-131
Organizers:    Dennis Sullivan, Bob Hough, Ljudmila Kamenova

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


Volume Conjecture Seminar

Time:              Fri 10:00am - 11:00am
Location:        Math Tower 5-127
Organizers:    Ying Hong Tham

In 1997, Kashaev posited the original volume conjecture, which posited that the certain asymptotics of a link invariant he constructed gave the hyperbolic volume of the link's complement. Later, Murakami and Murakami reinterpreted his link invariant in terms of the coloured Jones polynomials evaluated at roots of unity. Since then, the volume conjecture has been verified for many families of knots, but a general proof is out of sight. In this seminar we will attempt to understand the various aspects of this conjecture, and perhaps try our hand at verifying the conjecture for one or two new knots. 


RTG Student Seminar

Time:              Fri 11:00am - 12:00pm
Location:        Math Tower 5-127
Organizers:    Sam Auyeung and Jiahao Hu

A graduate student seminar supported by the Research and Training Grant.

Location:        Math Tower 5-127
Yoon-joo Kim and Nathan Chen

This is a weekly seminar for graduate students. The aim of the seminar is to learn a specific topic in algebraic geometry each semester. Only first year courses and the basics of algebraic geometry is assumed.


Dynamics Seminar

Time:               Fri 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Location:        Math Tower P-131
Jonguk Yang

This is a research seminar in dynamical systems and related aspects of analysis, geometry, and probability.
