Further Information

About the Pure Postgraduate Seminar: The Pure Postgraduate Seminar is a seminar series given by postgraduate students for an audience consisting mostly of other postgraduate students. Talks are about 50 minutes long. It is an excellent opportunity to get some experience in giving a presentation in an informal and pressure-free atmosphere, and at the same time share some captivating bit of mathematics with your fellow postgraduate students. You can but you do not need to talk about your own research. In fact many speakers prefer to talk about an entirely different topic, such as a nice bit of recreational mathematics or a proof that is elegant yet not widely known. In this view, we also positively encourage contributions from applied or statistics postgraduates, who want to speak about a pure topic.

For the academic year 2014-2015, the seminar is organised by Anja Komatar in the Autumn term and Raphael Bennett-Tennenhaus in the Spring term.

Previous years

Leeds/Manchester Combined Seminar

Once a year we hope to have a joint seminar with Manchester pure maths postgrads. This will take the form of an afternoon of short talks by Leeds and Manchester students, followed by dinner and quality time at the pub.

The last Leeds/Manchester joint postgrad seminar was in 2009 in Leeds.
