The discrete analysis seminar began in Lent Term 2007 and, after a hiatus, restarted in Michaelmas 2018. The range of topics covered by the seminar is rather broad. It includes, but is not limited to, additive combinatorics, analytic number theory, geometry of banach spaces, harmonic analysis, ergodic theory, the theory of approximate groups, and discrepancy theory.

During Michaelmas Term 2019, the seminar will be on Wednesday afternoons from 1.45pm to 2.45pm in (usually) MR5 of the Centre for Mathematical Sciences.

There will not be a talk every week, so subscribe to this listing to see an updated schedule.
