I am excited to announce the official start of our new Discrete Geometry group! This event will also be the first meeting of the NYC Geometry Seminar in the CUNY Graduate Center (midtown Manhattan). It will take place at 2pm of Friday August 31st. If you are in the NYC area and interested in Discrete Geometry and related topics – come join us!
The introductory meeting would not consist of the standard seminar presentation. Instead, the purpose of the event is to meet people who are interested in Discrete Geometry, Computational Geometry, and so on (with people coming from NYU, Princeton, various CUNYs, etc). Participants will introduce themselves to the audience and mention the main topics that interest them. You are welcome to either introduce yourself, or just to come listen and have some pastries. If you introduce yourself, you are encouraged to briefly state a major open problem you wish you could solve.
For the exact location, see the event page. Personally, I plan to have more technical math discussions with some participants before and after this meeting.
