The Stanford University Mathematical Organization hosts 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. The purpose of this series is to expose undergraduates to some topics not normally covered in the classroom, as well as to introduce them to Stanford's faculty and community. Talks will be accessible to freshmen in the 50-series.
Speaker Series is held (approximately) alternate Mondays 6:00 to 7:00pm during Winter and Spring quarters unless otherwise noted. Talks will be held in the Ricker Dining Green Room at 238 Santa Teresa St, Stanford. Please feel free to bring dinner from Ricker Dining into the room before the talk.
