This page lists this term's Pure Mathematics Seminars. All are welcome. All seminars will take place in the McCrea Building, Room 219. All seminars are at 4.00pm. Tea is served before the seminar at 3.30 in Room 237 of the McCrea Building.

The college is on the A30 about a mile south-west of Egham. The nearest station is Egham on the Waterloo--Reading line; see Railtrack for timetable information. Buses from the top of Station Road (Nos 41, 43, 441 and 500) stop at the College. See the College web page for maps and more detailed directions.

Last years seminars are still on the web: here and here and here.
