    Instructors: Dr Benedikt Lwe, Dr Yde Venema
    Time: Monday 16-18
    Place: to be determined
    Course language: English
    Intended Audience: Students of the MSc Mathematics and MSc Logic

    Goal. Students need to learn to read research papers and present mathematical ideas. The goal of this seminar is to give students an opportunity to train their reading skills in mathematics and learn how to present.

    Content. Selected research papers will be handed out to the students who then have to read them, understand them and present them to the seminar.

    Papers to choose from

    Modal logic and topology

    Topology and infinite games
