Many of our geometry and topology seminars over the last few years are available as videos.


Carmen Rovi has created a very extensive collection of mathematical videos, which you can find via on her Dailymotion
and YouTube accounts. This includes almost all recent topology seminars as well as full recording of several conferences outside Edinburgh.

We also have a collection of videos of most of our geometry seminars since autumn 2011. Below you can find (locally hosted) mp4 files, and a link to a copy hosted on dailymotion. (Dailymotion offers you the choices of watching in lower resolutions; the video may be interrupted by ads. You can also find the collection of videos via the weebirationalist dailymotion page.)
