# Student Working Seminar in Groups and Dynamics

Organizers:

The Student Working Seminar in Groups and Dynamics is an informal, student-run seminar that meets approximately once a week to discuss topics related to group theory and dynamical systems. Talks are at the graduate/postdoctoral level and can be presentations of original results, exposition of the literature, or simply open-ended conversations. If you would like to give a talk or be added to the mailing list, please email one of the organizers.

This semester (Fall 2015), the seminar will meet weekly on Mondays from 3-4 PM in Blocker 624.
