Proofs from THE BOOK reading group


The idea behind this reading group is to go through some of the chapters in this book (and maybe some other books). Each chapter covers a particular topic (ranging from number theory to geometry, analysis, graph theory, etc...), including various results that have really pretty proofs, or exemplifying some proof techniques that are really inspired.

Here's some information about the book.

My original idea was to have just an very informal meeting, where someone can do a short presentation (white board stuff) about some chapter they found interesting. That way the other people can get a quick idea and introduction to that chapter...

Let's try to find out who is interested, and when would be a good day to meet. Fill in your name below as well as some possible times and days that would work for you. As suggested by Badri there is a calendar below, where people can mark slots that are not good for them, or alternatively indicate what are the times that might work. Please create a suitable notation when filling the 'table' (i.e., if you can't most of the times just mark the slots you actually can make).
