Summer 2006 Colloquium/Seminar Schedule

Each Thursday during the semester there is a mathematics seminar (usually in Anderson 120 from 3:15-4:15). Over perhaps one or two semesters, we consider a selected topic and, beginning with basic definitions, work up to the point where we can discuss current research in the area and present research discoveries by department faculty members in the area. This seminar is open to all interested students and faculty at West Chester.

Occasionally outside speakers or WCU mathematics faculty present a talk in the mathematics colloquium, which may be on a different topic. (check this page for times and locations).

Previous Semesters: Spring 2006,

In our weekly seminar for the first Summer semester, we continue the topic of Q-series. All talks are in Anderson 120 unless stated otherwise.
