Starts: 14.10.2015.


(pdf version)

This semester we'll have a bunch of mini-courses on different topics. The basic idea is to choose papers that:

We'll then have two lectures for each paper (two people per paper) giving background, explaining the proof, and giving applications. We have a pre-approved list of papers, but are welcome to suggestions. If you have a particular paper or a subject in mind, mention it to someone and we'll try to come up with an appropriate paper.
