QuébecVermont Number Theory Seminar FALL 2005
General Information.
Explanations for schedule:
This year the QuebecVermont Number Theory seminar will be meeting weekly
instead of every other week, to reflect the more intense level of activity
and greater number of visitors arising from the concentration
period in number theory being organised by the Laboratoire CICMA at the CRM.
