Secret Student Seminar

Forum for Undergrad & Grad students to present and discuss research and mathematics that they find interesting. Presentations do not have to be new results/findings; they can be expositions on interesting mathematics. The seminar is held in MAGC 1.302 on Fridays from 2-3pm (unless otherwise indicated).
