MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS

GRADUATE
STUDENT SEMINARby Jin Yue Chair, Graduate Student Seminar and Vice President, Graduate Student Society The Graduate Student Seminar is a regular event organized by the Mathematics and Statistics Graduate Student Society. It is one of the major departmental seminars that combines all areas of interests in both mathematics and statistics. The goal of the seminar is to provide a forum to promote scholarly communications among graduate students, and between graduate students, PDFs, faculty, and visitors. Graduate students, both in mathematics and statistics, are strongly encouraged to attend and speak in this weekly seminar. It is an integral part of our department's graduate program. Over the 2004-2005 academic year, we had an impressive number of talks, some by graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and some by faculty and visitors. We wish to thank all speakers who contributed to the success of our Graduate Student Seminar. We also appreciate Roman Smirnov suggesting two of his visitors (Larissa Lorenz and Giovanni Rastelli) to give talks in the Fall.
