Seminar: Basic Notions, Summer Term 2014

Organisers: Thomas Poguntke, Marc Sauerwein, Catharina Stroppel

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 wednesdays 14-16 in room 1.008.
