About

Each semester, the PSU Mathematics Department hosts 3–4 seminars. Most of the talks will be held in Hyde 349 (our new conference room) and last roughly an hour.  Most talks start at 4PM, but please see the announcement for each talk to confirm the time.  A half hour before each of the talks, there will either be pizza or coffee, tea, and snacks in the department lounge (aka, “the vault”). All of the talks are meant to be accessible to students and the topics vary from pure mathematics to mathematics education.  Anyone is welcome to attend.
