Luncheon Seminar

Department of Mathematics, Penn State University

Spring 2005
320 Whitmore Laboratory Fridays, 12:20pm-1:30pm |

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