Manchester Algebra Seminar
We meet on Tuesdays at 4pm during the teaching semester. Tea is provided beforehand at 3:40pm. Afterwards we usually go for a drink together and, if there is a visiting speaker, we go for dinner.
Everyone is welcome to attend and graduate students are particularly encouraged to come. There is a mailing list; to join, leave, or read mailings, go here.
Sometimes there will be an introductory talk at 2pm or 2:30. The purpose of this will be to give some background material necessary for the main talk, and it will be aimed at postgraduate students. This will not be every week - see the schedule for details.
The seminars are organised by Charles Eaton and Toby Stafford. If you have any enquiries, please contact Charles Eaton at the University of Manchester; Tel: (0161) 306 3697.
Seminars take place in Frank Adams Room 1, in the Alan Turing Building. Tea is on the Atrium Bridge, on the first floor.
