This seminar is aimed primarily at my graduate students, although others are welcome to attend and even participate. The participants will lecture on topics that are closely related to, or provide background for, their thesis problems.

Here are a few rules of the seminar:

1. Each week will be devoted to lectures by one student.

2. This is a working seminar, aimed at students with varying backgrounds. It is important that lectures be accessible to all participants.

3. Speakers should allow, in fact, welcome, interruptions from the audience.

4. Participants are encouraged to ask questions during the presentations, at any time.

Here is the schedule (to be made up as we go along).
