Mathematics Colloquium

The Mathematics Colloquium takes place on Mondays at 17:15 in the Lecture Hall of Research II.
There will be tea starting at about 16:45 near the entrance to the lecture hall.
More detailed information on finding the way can be found here.

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.
