# Computation in Algebra, Geometry, Topology, Number Theory, Combinatorics, and related fields

## Computations in algebra, geometry, topology, number theory, and combinatorics## Term 1 2017/18 |
---|

The aim of this seminar is to highlight the use of computers and computational packages across algebraic, geometry, number theory, combinatorics, and related fields. The seminar is organized in two-week blocks, with a talk the first week highlighting the use of computers in a particular area of mathematics, and a tutorial the second week on a relevant software package.

The target audience for the talks on area X will be people ** not**
in area X (though they are still welcome to attend).

This seminar takes place on

**Thursdays at 1pm**in

**B1.01**.

For questions, contact Diane Maclagan or John Cremona.

Directions to the University are available here. The Mathematics institute is in the Zeeman Building, which is number 38 on the map available here. Warning: The University of Warwick is not in the town of Warwick, but on the outskirts of Coventry - the correct train stations are Coventry or Leamington Spa (closer if coming from Oxford).
