PuMaGraSS is a friendly graduate student seminar that takes place every Friday during the semester and includes (free!) lunch. Every week features a casual talk by a graduate student from our department on an exciting mathematical topic.

Although there is a "pure" in the name of the seminar, we also welcome talks on combinatorics, probability theory, dynamical systems and more!
