Luncheon Seminar

Department of Mathematics, Penn State University

Spring 2007
114 McAllister Building Fridays, 12:15pm-1:25pm |

This informal 30-minute seminar is designed to allow students to meet and interact with CCMA researchers and outside visitors. While technically at an introductory graduate level, the seminar addresses front-line research problems.
