Current Topics Seminar

The Current Topics Seminar typically meets 3-4 times per quarter, on Thursdays 4-5pm in PDL C-036. The goal is to expose graduate students, especially those still trying to decide on research areas, to research being actively explored in the department. Mathematics faculty members give talks about their work, at a level suitable for first-year graduate students.

This seminar is organized by the graduate student representative (GSR), currently Sean Griffin (

Note that starting in 2019-202, this seminar will meet only in Autumn quarter. However, during the Autumn quarter, the seminar will meet every Thursday, 4:30-5:30.  We strongly encourage all first-year students to sign up for this seminar (for 2 credits), and attend all of its meetings.
