Distinguished Lecture Series

Organized by The (Indian) Mathematics Consortium

Co-hosted by IIT Bombay and ICTS-TIFR, Bengaluru

The Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS) is an initiative of the (Indian) Mathematics Consortium (TMC) and it aims to host virtual colloquiums by some of the best researchers and expositors around the world. The speakers are carefully chosen by the Scientific Committee among mathematicians who are not only distinguished researchers, but also known for the quality of their exposition. The principal aim is to make the talks as widely accessible as possible, especially to Ph.D. students. With this in view, the format of most of the talks will be as follows:

  • First, a pre-recorded talk by the speaker will be posted online. Interested audience can view this at their leisure and communicate questions, if there are any, to the organizers.

  • A live interactive session between the speaker and interested participants will be held in about 2 weeks after posting the online talk. This will be chaired by a member of the Scientific Committee.

The approximate duration of the talk will be about 45 minutes and that of the interactive session will be about 30 minutes. However, this is not rigid. The interactive session will not be recorded.
