Joint Analysis Seminar

University of Ottawa — Carleton University
Organizers:

The analysis seminar meets weekly during the semester, either at Carleton or at the University of Ottawa.

For the past three semesters the seminar has been run as a learning seminar, with the occasional research. Here are the topics we have covered so far:

  • Fall 2018 — Étale groupoids and Cartan Subalgebras
  • Winter 2019 — (Non)-exact groups
  • Fall 2019 — Amenable simple groups

Previously, the seminar hosted only traditional research talks. Below is the program for 2017-2018.
