Stanford Student/Special Algebraic Geometry Seminar


The Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar used to meet on Mondays from 1:00 to 2:00 pm in 383-N; now it meets on Wednesdays from 11-12am in 383N, with the exception of April 30 and May 7, when it will be at the old time. The two unusual times are manifestations of the "Special Algebraic Geometry Seminar" which faculty are encouraged to attend.
