Helsinki Number Theory Seminar

General Information

This seminar is a meeting place for researchers and students to learn about recent results and trends in number theory. The seminar takes place in the Exactum building of the University of Helsinki. Most talks are scheduled in C124, on Monday mornings from 11:10-12:00. The seminar is organised by Jacques Benatar and Neea Palojärvi and supported by the Centre of Excellence (FiRST).
