Computations in algebra, geometry, topology, number theory, and combinatorics
Term 1 2017/18
The aim of this seminar is to highlight the use of computers and computational packages across algebraic, geometry, number theory, combinatorics, and related fields. The seminar is organized in two-week blocks, with a talk the first week highlighting the use of computers in a particular area of mathematics, and a tutorial the second week on a relevant software package.
The target audience for the talks on area X will be people not in area X (though they are still welcome to attend).
For questions, contact Diane Maclagan or John Cremona.
