This is a bi-weekly series of lectures "Initiation in Mathematics" by Penn State research faculty and visitors. It is a component of the new "pre-MASS" (PMASS) program aimed at freshman/sophomore level students, but everybody is welcome to attend. The lectures will be broad in scope and not very technical.
