What is Trivial Notions?

The Trivial Notions seminar is held once a week in the Mathematics Department at Harvard University. The target audience is the graduate student body of the Department, and those giving talks are (almost always) graduate students in the Department. Talks can be on any topic, but they should be accessible to graduate students!

The seminar is a great way to find out what other students are thinking about. It's also a great way to practice talking mathematics in front of others, without the distraction of scary professors in the audience.

Any questions?

The seminar is organized this fall by Geoffrey Smith, Akhil Mathew and Yifei Zhao. Please send one of us an email if you have any questions or if you want to add yourself to the schedule.
