Cossa xe...? seminar

The "Cossa xe...? Seminar" is a (bi)weekley online seminar that will be held on Fridays at 11:00 am via Zoom.The goal of the seminar is to be a channel of communication where we all learn some cool math and more about each other's research interests. Each talk will be 40 minutes long. The speaker will present a mathematical object/result and provide the audience with some intuition and motivation for its study. The speaker is encouraged to keep in mind that the audience's interests need not lie within the speaker's own research interest.The name of the seminar is a Triestin translation of "What is...?", which is the name of a well-known column in the Notices of the Amer. Math. Soc. that consists of brief, well-written and nontechnical articles aimed for grad students; see here for a collection.The upcoming schedule for 2021 is as follows: 

  • June 18th, 2021. 11:00 am:

    Title:"Cossa xe...a Hopf-Galois extension?"

    Speaker: Daan van de Weem



    • June 25th, 2021. 11:00 am:
