Previous Seminars
(in reverse chronological order)

These seminars are forums for (but not limited to) talks from visiting faculty as well as from the Mathematics and Statistics Department faculty. The talks are about 45 minutes, followed by a 10-15 minute discussion, and are geared for nonspecialist faculty and junior-senior level math majors (knowledge of at least linear algebra and differential equations is assumed). Anyone is welcome to attend. Refreshments will be provided 10 minutes before and after the talk.

If you would like to speak in the seminar or have any questions, please contact Dr. Dipa Sarkar-Dey by emailing dsarkardey "at" loyola "dot" edu.
