Quantum Cohomology, Nakajima Varieties and Quantum groups

During the Spring 2018 Semester Artan Sheshmani (QGM/CMSA) will be teaching a CMSA special lecture series on Quantum Cohomology, Nakajima Vareties and Quantum groups. The lectures will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 1:00 to 3:00pm in room G10, CMSA Building.
