Category Theory Seminar

The informal category theory seminar is exactly what it sounds like: a place for people to give and listen to talks about category theory, whether based on applications or pure theory. We meet at 6311 (JCMB) at 15:10am every Wednesday. The schedule for this semester can be found below, and also here. Please feel free to contact tom.avery at ed.ac.uk with any enquiries or to be added to the mailing list.
