Seminar: Basic Notions, Winter Term 2013/14

Organisers: Thomas Poguntke, Marc Sauerwein, Catharina Stroppel

In the Summer Term 2014 there will be a continuation of this Seminar. Information can be found here .

Initiated originally by diploma students, the Basic Notions Seminar is now organised by Master students as a BIGS event targeting both graduate and undergraduate students. Its aim is to present in an elementary and informal way basic notions from all areas of mathematics to non-specialists. Speakers can be students, post-docs or faculty.
If you would like to give a talk please contact Thomas Poguntke or Marc Sauerwein.

The seminar will take place fridays 12-14 in the Lipschitz Saal.

Prospective talks: Alternative Foundations of Mathematics (in contrast to Zermelo-Fraenkel), Introduction to Class Field Theory, Modular Forms ...
