Mathematics Seminar (Quantum Algebra / Mathematical-Physics / etc.)
Mostly a faculty research seminar. Going over expository
papers & problems for faculty/graduate/undergraduate research.
Goals: Learn each other's favorite math language, share interests and
problems, facilitate collaborations, having fun ...
Participants (we can
count on! Everybody is invited to come by before the Discrete Math
