Talks are (or should be) directed at a general mathematical audience.
Everybody is encouraged to invite external speakers. Please use the table below to find out what dates are available and send me a line in order to reserve one.
We keep a Colloquium Book; each speaker is asked to write a handwritten abstract of the talk into it.
