CUNY Diff Geom Seminar Fall 2015

CUNY Graduate Center

Differential Geometry Seminar

click here for Spring 2016

In Fall 2015, we meet on Thursdays 2:45-3:45 pm in room 6496, unless otherwise noted. The organizers of this seminar are Professors Christina Sormani, Luis Fernandez and Neil Katz.  Please email Prof Sormani to schedule a guest speaker. We expect this semester to primarily have group members present to each other rather than having outside guest speakers.  We are very small with a few faculty on sabbatical.   The CUNY Graduate Center is located at 365 Fifth Avenue at 34th Street, diagonally across the street from the Empire State Building, just two blocks from Penn Station (NYC).
