The Mathematics Colloquium takes place on

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.
