Mathematical Physics Seminar
The seminars take place on Tuesday lunchtimes at 2:00 pm (mostly internal speakers) and Thursday afternoons from 4:15 pm (mostly external speakers, and preceded by coffee/tea from 4pm), in the relaxed atmosphere of Room G/109 in James College Nucleus. The typical length of the talks is about 1 hour.
