Columbia Algebraic Geometry Seminar

Fall 2021


The Columbia Algebraic Geometry Seminar takes place on Fridays at 3:30 pm in 417 Mathematics Hall on the Columbia campus. All talks will also be streamed on Zoom (password is the number of lines on a cubic surface), and some will be entirely on Zoom.

The seminar is organized by Giulia Saccà, Will Sawin, and Akash Sengupta.
