Tropical Mathematics and its Applications

A LMS Joint Research Group

This is a collaboration between research groups at Birmingham, Manchester, and Warwick. See the main group page with links to other meetings here. The page for the previous Warwick meeting is here.

Next Warwick Meeting

The next meeting of this Joint Research Group will be at Warwick on Wednesday 15th February, 2017. The talks will take place in MS.05 and MS.03 in the Zeeman (Maths) Building.

To find MS.05 and MS.03, enter the building by the main doors, and go up the stairs infront of you, and the the next flight to your left. MS.05 and MS.03 are now to your right. Alternatively, take the lift that is on your right as you enter to the 2nd floor, and walk forwards. To find the common room, turn left as you enter the building, go through the doors, and up the stair case to your right. The common room is now on your right.

Directions to Warwick are available here. The Mathematics institute is in the Zeeman Building. Maps of campus are available here (look at the central campus map). This is closest to the second bus stop in the main part of campus, or parking lot 15 (which is pay-and-display). Warning: The University of Warwick is not in the town of Warwick, but on the outskirts of Coventry - the correct train stations are Coventry or Leamington Spa.
