What is SUMO?
SUMO is the Stanford University Mathematical Organization. We are the by-students-for-students math club on campus. We host various events that are open to everyone: math majors and non-math majors, graduate and undergraduate.
What events does SUMO run?
This is a weekly talk given by a professor, grad student, or visitor about undergraduate-accessible topics in pure and applied mathematics that go beyond the standard curriculum.
