The MATH+ Fridays are usually preceded by the "What is...?" seminars organized by students for students.
What is the concept behind MATH+ Fridays?
The Friday colloquia represent a common meeting point for Berlin mathematics at Urania Berlin: a colloquium with broad emanation that permits an overview of large-scale connections and insights. In thematic series, the conversation is about “mathematics as a whole,” and we hope to be able to witness some breakthroughs. Hardly anyone knows that Grigory Perelman first presented his famous proof of the Poincaré Conjecture to the mathematical public in Berlin, at the PhD student seminar meeting of professors Huisken and Ecker at FU Berlin.
Behind the scenes at MATH+ Fridays, a number of seminars, workshops, courses, and conversation opportunities are on offer. For instance, the lunches prior to the “Sonia Kovalevskaya Colloquia” are a place to discuss the career paths of successful women in mathematics. Seminars and courses that BMS students can request will discuss such topics as presentation training, mathematical typography, library research, and writing style. For these, please have a look at our Academics page.
