Pure Mathematics Seminar - Potchefstroom

This seminar has a two-fold objective:

Firstly as a forum for sharing ideas and interesting new mathematical constructs and ideas you have noticed,
and secondly as a forum where as a group we can study a particular new emerging topic.

We hope to create an atmosphere of rich debate where we can help each other to rediscover the power and beauty of mathematics, which is also accessible to a wide audience. To start off with we hope to investigate the concept of quantum groups.

Venue: G3-122

Time: 11:00 on Thursdays
