Chennai Mathematical Institute Mathematics Colloquium -- January - April 2023

We are organizing the Fields Medal Lecture Series this semester. This will include a set of 4 talks by experts, regarding the work and impact of the recent Fields medallists. These talks are scheduled on Fridays from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm, and are specifically aimed at undergraduate and graduate students. In particular, they will be accessible to a wide audience.

We will also have a series of Mathematics Colloquium talks this semester, given by leading researchers. These will feature talks aimed at students and non-experts in general. The maths colloquia will be on Wednesdays, from 3:30 to 4:30 pm. For some talks there might be a change of timing, which will be listed below in that case. The schedule for both series of talks is listed below. Further details will be posted here soon!
