The Math Department's fall quarter colloquiums have been suspended during the pandemic. Instead, in our colloquiums' usual Thursday timeslot, we will be hosting occasional "Math Chats"--less formal persentations and conversastions with math faculty about topics they find of particular interest. Check the Math Chats page for details or contact organizer, Jeff Boersema: Boersema@seattleu.edu).

**All talks on Thursdays at 3:45pm in Bannan 402 **
