NUmber Theory Seminar


Chenyan Wu and I are running a working seminar on things number-theoretic.

The seminar is currently on break between the two semesters. We will resume when Semester 2 starts in late July.


The seminar is typically an amalgamation of working together through various topics, mini-courses, and miscellaneous talks by visitors and locals. You can click on each year below to see the list of talks.
