London Number Theory Seminar 



The London Number Theory Seminar is held weekly, on Wednesdays, during term time. The location of the seminar cycles between KCL, Imperial College and UCL.
This term (Spring 2016), the seminar will be hosted by UCL, and will be on Wednesdays at 4:45pm (note nonstandard time) in UCL maths department, starting on 13th January and finishing on March 16th. Note in particular that there will only be ten seminars  the reason for this is that the BMC is taking place in Bristol on 23rd March. The seminar will be preceded by tea and biscuits at 4:15pm in room 606. The seminar will take place in room 500, on the 5th floor of the building which houses the UCL maths department.A preliminary list of speakers is below; for full details including up to date titles and abstracts please go to Sarah's web page here.
