Note time change: the geometry seminar is meeting Thursdays, 2.103pm in JCMB 6311 (except where noted otherwise).
It is organized by all faculty working in geometry, and currently coordinated by Arend Bayer. See the Seminars page for instructions on how to subscribe to the geometrytopology mailing list.
The seminar is named after William Edge (19041997), who is known for example for his work on finite geometry, and worked at University of Edinburgh for over 40 years (19321975).
Related seminars: Topology, MAXIMALS, EMPG, GLEN, COW.
