Time: Thursdays 4pm
Manchester Geometry Seminar 2008/2009.
Location: The Frank Adams Room (Room 1.212) in the Alan Turing building. This new mathematics building is on Upper Brook Street, next to a multi-storey parking garage, opposite the former "Welsh Chapel" (now partly demolished) and the Citroën garage. It is building 46 on the campus map.
See directions on the MIMS (Manchester Institute of Mathematical Sciences) page.
Visit the main page to find more information about the seminar, in particular, programmes of talks for previous years. We meet about 3.45 to collect tea, then take it to the seminar room, where there will be biscuits. Each lecture begins at 4pm.
