Seminar on Topics in Arithmetic, Geometry, Etc.

STAGE is a seminar that features both research lectures at a level suitable for graduate students in algebraic geometry and number theory, and expository lectures. Everyone is welcome.
Meetings are held on Thursdays, 1:30-2:30pm in MIT room 66-156.
To receive announcements by email, add yourself to the STAGE mailing list.

For titles and abstracts, please see the mathematics department calendar.
