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 (Summer 2015), the seminar will be hosted by Kings College, and will be held on Wednesdays starting at 4pm. The talks will be in room S4.23 of the Department of Mathematics, starting on Wed 22nd April. The talks will be preceded by tea at 3:30 in S5.21 moves to 4:30).

Mahesh Kakde and Igor Wigman are the organizers of the seminar this term; titles and full abstracts for this term's talks are available from his web pages here.
