Manchester Geometry Seminar
Geometry and Mathematical Physics Seminar
2015/2016: Semester 2
Time: Thursdays 4.15pm (for the Manchester Geometry Seminar)
Thursdays 3.15pm (for the Geometry and Mathematical Physics Seminar)
Location: The Frank Adams Room 1 (Room 1.212) in the Alan Turing building.
The two seminars are run in combination/ alternation. Visit the main page to find more information, in particular, programmes of talks for previous years. For the Manchester Geometry Seminar, we meet about 3.50 for tea and biscuits; each lecture begins at 4.15pm in the seminar room FA 1. For the Geometry and Mathematical Physics Seminar, we start at 3.15pm and have a break around 4pm. We may vary the beginning of the seminars in the interval 3pm to 4pm depending on circumstances.
Easter break: Monday 21 March to Friday 8 April. [NB. Gregorian or Western Easter: Sunday 27 March; Julian or Orthodox Easter: Sunday 1 May / 18 April Julian.]
