The CGP hosts various regular and irregular seminars given both by visiting scholars and the members of the center.

  • Center for Geometry and Physics Seminar
  • Thursdays 16:00 – 18:00
  • The Center for Geometry and Physics seminar on every Thursday afternoon is the most important regular event of CGP, and generally all members of the center participate. The seminars are formatted to encourage robust and dynamic interactions among participants.

    The seminar is structured as a two-hour talk by a designated speaker with a thiry minute intermission with tea and snack. The first half is intended to be a colloquium-level talk suitable for a general mathematical audience, while the second half can be more specialized. Discussions may continue over dinner.

  • Quantum Monday
  • Mondays (Time for Spring 2014: 16:00 – 18:00)
  • Quantum Monday is an evening seminar focusing on various topics in mathematical physics. This seminar has no fixed format of time constraint, and discussions sometimes continue as late as midnight.

  • Derived Seminar
  • Tuesday 13:00 – 15:00
