Nonlinear Algebra Seminar Online - 2020

While the in-person Nonlinear Algebra seminar series at the institute is suspended, we are running a series of NASO (Nonlinear Algebra Seminar Online). From 12.05.2020 we will start a new series of NASO organised by Mateusz Michalek. We will meet once a week, every Tuesday at 5 pm (CEST) (GMT+2; Berkeley: 8-9 am) for one talk. The talks will be about 50 minutes with time for questions and discussion. You can find titles and abstracts of upcoming talks below.

One day before each seminar, an announcement with the Zoom link is mailed to the NASO e-mail list. To receive these e-mails, please sign up by writing to Mateusz Michalek. The talks will not be officially recorded. All enthusiasts of algebra are very welcome! 

You can find titles, abstracts and recordings of ALL the past NASO series organized by Alexander Heaton, Miruna-Stefana Sorea and Bernd Sturmfels in the list of the 2020 talks. Below are listed only the most recent talks.
