Valley Geometry Seminar

The Valley Geometry Seminar meets Friday afternoons in 1634 LGRT at the University of Massachusetts. It is a five-college seminar (Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College and the University of Massachusetts). The seminar generally is 4:00-5:00 PM with refreshments at 3:45.

The talks are intended for faculty and graduate students with geometric interests of some form or other: algebraic geometry, differential geometry, modern homotopy theory, geometric representation theory, topology, geometric combinatorics, commutative algebra, applications to and from physics, etc.
