CUNY Geometry and Topology Seminar


Unless a change is noted below, the CUNY Geometry and Topology Seminar takes place at 4:15pm on Tuesdays in Room 3212 (note we are back in our usual room!) of the Graduate Center, located at 365 Fifth Avenue across the street from the Empire State Building. All are welcome.
