Weekly Department Colloquia

August 29, 2018 - 4:00pm
Christmas-Saucon Hall, Room 201


The goal of the colloquium is to give a chance to outside visitors and local faculty to present their work to the Department. We try to host speakers in all fields of mathematics and the attendance of all members of the Department (faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students if appropriate) is strongly encouraged. This promotes communications and collaborations between members of the Department and members of other Universities. It gives the chance to members of the Math Department to hear about active research in their field of research as well as getting familiar with research in other fields.

For more information, you can contact Professor Steven Weintraub (shw2@lehigh.edu) or Professor Lei Wu (lew218@lehigh.edu).


All weekly colloquium talks will be given on Wednesday in Christmas-Saucon Hall room 201 at 4:10 pm, unless stated otherwise. Tea, coffee, and cookies will be served at 3:30 pm in Christmas-Saucon 107 (the Department's Common Room).

For further information, please contact Mary Ann Dent (mad8-at-lehigh.edu), Department Coordinator.
