Mathematics Colloquia

Summer Term 2006/07

Organisers: Adam Epstein and Peter Topping

The Colloquia take place on Friday afternoons at 4.00pm in Lecture Room B3.02 of the Mathematics Institute They are directed towards a general mathematical audience. In particular, one of the functions of these colloquia is to inform non-specialists and graduate students about recent trends, ideas and results in some area of mathematics, or a closely related field.

Further abstracts will be added as they become available.
