We'll go through classic papers from across as broad a part of mathematics as we can manage. We meet on Fridays from 3-5; one person will present the paper, and be told 24 hours before what it is they are speaking on. A bit like non-academic life, I'm told.
30.9.11 "The characters of the finite general linear group" by J.A.Green (Iain)
7.10.11 "The upper bound conjecture and Cohen Macaulay rings" by R.Stanley (Rollo)
- 21.10.11 "Convexity and commuting hamiltonians" by M.Atiyah (Will)
- 28.10.11 "The Grothendieck duality theorem via Bousfield's techniques and Brown representability" by A.Nemman (Guillaume)
- 4.11.11 "Euler class, Lefschetz numbers and vector fields" following Bredon's Algebraic Topology book (Joe)
