It is probably better to go to http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/puremaths/research/algebra/londonalgebracolloquia for this term’s seminars, though I shall try to keep these pages fairly up-to-date.

This term (and next) the London Algebra Colloquium will be held in Imperial College London. The time is Thursdays at 5:00pm (rather than the usual 4:45pm), in lecture room 139. We meet for tea at about 4:15pm in the common room (Huxley 548). Details of (all) previous colloquia can be found here.

The previous term’s seminars can also be found here. The programme (so far) for this term (these terms) is as follows:
