Seminars, Colloquia, and Conferences
Seminars
Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory
Seminar topics include algebra, algebraic geometry, differential
geometry, number theory and representation theory, and seminar
speakers include students and faculty from both inside and outside
the department. See the seminar's web page for schedule information.

Applied Math
This seminar hosts internal and external speakers on topics related to
applied and computational mathematics. All are welcome and graduate
students are encouraged to present their current research in applied math.

Dynamics
Dynamical Systems at Tufts includes topics in pure and applied
mathematics. Areas of current interest in the seminar include
hyperbolicity, geometrically motivated dynamics, and some aspects of
lowdimensional dynamics. In the 20142015 school year, the dynamics
seminar meets on Fridays at 1:30pm in BP 1.

Geometric Group Theory and Topology
This weekly seminar meets on Tuesdays afternoons, usually hosting
outside speakers. We have strong local participation by faculty and
graduate students, and we often have visitors from other area
universitiesespecially Brandeis, but also BC, Harvard, and MIT.

Probability
Graduate students in probability engage in weekly educational/working seminars
in collaboration with faculty, each student focused on different aspects of a
single major project. The group environment fosters critical, analytical,
presentation, discussion, and problem solving skills. This synergistic method is
enjoyable while providing students broader expertise and a supportive
careerlong peer group.

SchlumbergerTufts Computational and Applied Math
The seminar is jointly hosted by Tufts and the Schlumberger Doll Research
company; it meets on average once a month, usually on a Tuesday or Thursday in
the late afternoon. The location alternates between Tufts and the Schlumberger
office near MIT. A major focus of the seminar is on the mathematical and
computational aspects of remote sensing. A partial list of the topics of
interest includes: numerical solution of large scale PDEs (a.k.a. forward
problems); theory and numerical methods of inverse and illposed problems;
imaging; related problems in numerical linear algebra, approximation theory,
optimization and model reduction.
