## Columbia Algebraic Geometry Seminar## Fall 2004 |
---|

The Columbia Algebraic Geometry Seminar takes place on Friday afternoons. All are welcome.

We are experimenting with a new format this year, with fewer seminar dates but several talks on each date. The dates for the fall are October 29, November 12, and December 3.
