The Arithmetics Statistic postdoc seminar, organized by Jonathan Bober and Kaneenika Sinha, meets Mondays from 10 to 10:50 a.m. The Free Boundary Problems postdoc seminar meets immediately afterwards, and then MSRI will have pizza for us at 12.

Note to speakers/attendees

MSRI expects that all postdocs, in both programs, should attend both postdoc seminars, and so speakers may wish to keep in mind the fact that a significant portion of the audience may not be number theorists. On the other hand, it is likely that most of the audience will be in the Arithmetic Statistics program, and perhaps the primary purpose of this seminar should for participants in the Arithmetic Statistics program to tell other participants in the Arithmetic Statistics program something about what they are interested in and why they are interested in it.

Also, we take the name "Postdoc Seminar" to mean that the speakers are postdocs, not that the audience members must be composed of postdocs, and everyone is welcome to attend.
