Course Description: 290G, Analysis Participation Seminar.

Location: MS 6221
Time: Tuesdays 3:00--5:30
Faculty: M. Bonk, J. Garnett, R. Killip, T. Tao, M. Visan.

The 290G seminar has graduate students presenting a broad range of topics in analysis at a level appropriate for their peers.

Beginning students typically speak on a topic recommended by a member of the faculty, while more advanced students tend to present results that they have learned as part of their background study on a research topic. On occasion, they speak on their own work.

Primarily, talks are by UCLA graduate students; however, on occasion, there are talks by visiting graduate students, post-docs, or faculty.

This is a great opportunity for students to learn about the research interests of the analysis group; regular speakers include students working with professors Bonk, Garnett, Killip, Tao, and Visan. For a list of recent (and future) talks, start here.

A second and important part of 290G is the half-hour coffee break between talks, which is held outside Kerckhoff Coffeehouse. It provides an informal arena for students and faculty to get to know one another and a pleasant low-key environment for asking questions.

While those enrolled are usually expected to speak, everybody is most welcome to come along and ask questions. If you'd like to speak but don't have a topic, talk to one of the profs listed above---or all of them at once: every Tuesday 3:30 outside Kerckhoff.
