Welcome! Philadelphia Area Number Theory Seminar hosts research talks on a broad range of number theory and related topics, including analytic and algebraic number theory, modular forms, Diophantine equations, automorphic forms and L-functions, and more. We are friendly, engaged and mathematically open-minded; we support work in progress and ask and answer many questions.
The seminar will meet most Wednesdays, starting on July 11 on Bryn Mawr's beautiful campus, easy to reach from any of Philly's campuses by car or train. The talk is from 2:40-3:50 p.m. in Park 338, preceded by tea and cookies at 2:20 p.m. in the Math/Physics Lounge, Park 339.
We gather number theorists from Philadelphia's and nearby math departments, including Bryn Mawr, CUNY, Drexel, Franklin & Marshall, Haverford, Muhlenberg, Penn, PSU, Rowan, Swarthmore, Temple, Villanova, West Chester, and others. If you are a number-theorist visiting Philadelphia, we would love to host your talk; please write to Djordje or Heidi to arrange for a specific week.
Schedule of Talks: Fall 2018 To Be Announced
The seminar is currently organized by Djordje Milićević at Bryn Mawr College and Heidi Goodson at Haverford College. The seminar was previously organized by Helen Grundman. Until Spring 2014, the seminar met at Temple University; see previous talks there.
By Regional Rail: It is super-easy to come by train. Take the SEPTA Paoli-Thorndale Line from any of the downtown stations (Temple, Market East, Suburban, or 30th Street). Almost all trains stop at Bryn Mawr. Walk on Morris (which is the street you see first getting off the train), cross Montgomery Ave, and take the next left onto Yarrow St, which soon meets Merion Ave; you are now on campus and, from here, anyone should be able to point you to the Park Science Center, or you can use the local map.
Other transit options: We can also be reached from the Bryn Mawr stop on the Norristown High-Speed Line (NHSL) (but this walk is a bit longer). Buses 105 and 106 stop nearby on Lancaster Ave.
