RELATED SEMINARS

AND GEOMETRY DAY

 

Seminars and discussions related to computers and geometry will take place during the period 20 January - 27 January 2003, including a conference on differential geometry "Differential Geometry of Minimal Submanifolds and Harmonic Maps" on 27 January.

 

SEMINARS 20-22 JANUARY 2003

 

All seminars will be held at the Mathematics Department of Tokyo Metropolitan University (6th floor, Faculty of Science Building).

A provisional schedule is given below. The seminars are intended to promote informal exchanges with the speaker(s) and may be held in the form of discussions, with flexible timing.
