The University of Arkansas

O.M.N.I. Seminar

Organizers: Melissa Shabazz/William Taylor

This seminar is an opportunity for members of the department, expecially graduate students, to share their knowledge and interest in various mathematical subjects with each other and meet friends inside and outside the department. O.M.N.I. stands for Organized Mathematical Networking and Inquiry. It indicates our interest in all areas of mathematics.

Talks in the seminar are given by graduate students and faculty. Special attention is given to students presenting their research or the interesting mathematics they have encountered in completing their degree. This seminar is also an opportunity for faculty to present their research at a level appropriate for second-year and later graduate students. Please contact the organizers if you are interested in speaking at the seminar.

The seminar takes place on Mondays at 4:00 PM in Science Engineering 322. Exceptions are colored in green. All are welcome. We will sometimes go to dinner on Dickson Street afterwards. Hope to see you there!
