Yorkshire Functional Analysis Group

YFAG mainly meets in Leeds, but recently we have resurrected the Yorkshire theme, with meetings in York and Sheffield.

Unless otherwise stated, meetings will be in Leeds, at 3:30pm, in the room MALL 2, School of Mathematics, University of Leeds.

Seminar organizer: Matthew Daws

Spring Term, 2012

The usual seminar room is often busy this term-- so many talks will start late, at 4pm, or in some circumstances may run at 3:30pm but in a different room.
