IMA Postdoc Seminar 2005/06

The IMA Postdoc Seminar meets every Tuesday at 11:15 during the semester in Lind 409, except in IMA workshop weeks. It provides postdocs with the dual opportunities of giving talks not necessarily related to the thematic program, and of inviting visitors (or U of M faculty) to give talks on subjects of interest to the IMA postdocs. This year, the postdoc seminar is organized by Jung-Ha An and Matthias Kurzke.
