Courant Institute of Mathematical
For more information please contact Prof. Richard Pollack (pollack "AT" cims.nyu.edu).
The geometry seminar covers a wide range of topics in geometry with
particular emphasis on discrete geometry, computational geometry
and algorithmic real algebraic geometry. Many of the speakers are
Courant Institute visitors and postdocs. A seminar talk may cover
original research or report on an interesting paper. The seminar is
run by Janos Pach,
and Joseph Malkevitch.
