NCG Reading Seminar

This is an informal reading seminar on noncommutative geometry and related topics organized by the group of master students, PhD students, postdocs and staff working on topics related to noncommutative geometry in Nijmegen. It forms a platform where we share with each other our ideas, projects, problems, papers, etc.

We meet on Tuesday afternoons (15:30-16:30). The theme of the coming semester is quantum fields.
