Graduate Student Seminars
The Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry Seminar is a weekly research seminar co-organized by Cameron Wright and Andrew Tawfeek. Seminars run weekly on Fridays in Thomson Hall (THO) 325 from 10:30AM to 11:50AM. Talks often are 50-minutes in length, with the remaining 30-minutes used for discussion.
The 1-2-3 Seminar is a place where students can talk about topics near and dear to ourselves, geared towards engaging audiences that are graduate students across different fields. The format of each talk will be three examples in increasing complexity (1-2-3), presented with an emphasis on quality and engagement. For the year 2022-2023, the 1-2-3 Seminar is organized by Leo Mayer and Haoming Ning. If you would like the opportunity to present, please contact us!
The Geometry and Dynamics Seminar runs Thursdays during Winter quarter and is led by Albert Artiles.
The Graduate Student Analysis Seminar (GSAS) is a low-stakes forum organized by and for graduate students to share their interests and professional experiences in the field of mathematical analysis. Among its primary goals are (1) to provide a safe space for graduate students to expound their knowledge of special topics in analysis with minimal pressure and no judgement, and (2) to build community among those interested in analysis by providing them a forum in which to learn about their peers' research interests. Our Winter Quarter 2023 meetings will take place from 12:30 to 1:20 pm in Padelford C-401. Graduate students from all departments are welcomed! To receive announcements about upcoming talks and other GSS-sponsored events, please contact Ryan Bushling.
Algebraic Geometry Student's Seminar (Wednesdays 4-5pm followed by a short Q/A session with speaker) at CMU B006. The seminar will feature weekly talks ranging from various basic to research level topics in Algebraic Geometry by students in the Math Department with the intention of creating a community to exchange ideas in the subject. The seminar is currently being organised by Arkamouli Debnath. If you would like to give a talk please contact Arkamouli.
The DubTop Seminar is a weekly seminar where graduate students collectively do a deep dive into a topic in algebraic topology. Each quarter has a different focus. For autumn 2023, our chosen topic is the Steenrod Algebra and Cohomology Operations, and we meet weekly on Fridays in PDL C38 from 2:30pm to 3:30pm. This seminar is organized by Alex Waugh.
