Columbia Algebraic Geometry Seminar

Spring 2011

Ritt and Kolchin Lectures

All of the named lectures in the Department this spring will be devoted to algebraic geometry: Eduard Looijenga will deliver the Joseph Fels Ritt Lectures on Thursday and Friday, February 3 and 4; and Claire Voisin will deliver the Ellis R. Kolchin Memorial Lecture on Friday, March 11.

The Columbia Algebraic Geometry Seminar takes place on Fridays from 2 to 3 pm in 417 Mathematics Hall on the Columbia campus. All are welcome.

Other, equally shameless thefts: the Harvard/MIT Algebraic Geometry Seminar, the Stanford Algebraic Geometry Seminar, the Brown University Geometry Seminar, the Lisbon Algebraic Geometry / Moduli Seminar, the Combinatorics Seminar at the University of Michigan, the Front Range Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory Seminar in Colorado, and the Algebraic Geometry and Differential Topology Seminar at the Rényi Institute in Budapest. Also note the suspiciously colored background of the Queen's Algebraic Geometry Seminar and the Michigan Colloquium.
