Foom for Thought Seminar 

The primary goal of this seminar is to cover interesting and important ideas and techniques in math in a way that is accessible to a general graduate student audience. We aim to cover topics that (1) encompass milestones in mathematical thinking, (2) explain the basic ideas and modes of operation of a specific area of math, and/or (3) describe the merits and shortcomings of the National Parks system (if no math topic is found). The flavor of the talks is ideaoriented rather than definitiontheoremprooforiented, so that the major ideas are conveyed without bogging down the audience in technicalities and details. We hope to cover some beautiful and important math in a way that every graduate student can benefit from. Also, we have Food for Stomach (FOOD for Thought is BACK!), and we upload many of the seminar's talks to our YouTube channel, to which we urge you to subscribe! Meets: Monday 45pm in AP&M 5402
