Click on the title to see the abstract (if available). For more information, please contact Jun Li (jli@math.stanford.edu) or Ravi Vakil (vakil@math.stanford.edu). For last year's seminar listings, click here.
There is also a joint seminar with Berkeley, held four times per year. When the seminar is held at Berkeley, we'll organize cars to drive up; if you're interested, just let Ravi or Jun know. We'll stay for dinner (heavily subsidized for graduate students).
