Ben Gurion University – Mathematics

Algebraic Geometry and Number Theory Seminar

Second Semester (Spring) 2016-17

  • Location: Room -101 (basement floor), Mathematics Building (number 58)

  • Time: Wednesdays at 15:10-16:30 (starts at 15:10 sharp)

  • Previous semester

  • This semester the seminar is organized by Amnon Yekutieli

  • About the seminar: Our seminar deals with algebraic geometry and number theory in the wide sense (including ring theory, algebraic topology and derived categories). You can get an idea about the seminar topics by clicking "Previous semester" (recursively).

  • Advice for speakers: The talks are 80 minutes long, and we tend to ask many questions during them, so please be prepared for that.
