Analysis/Probability Seminar

The joint Analysis/Probability seminar is alternately held in one of the following colleges: Imperial College, King's College (London) ,Queen Mary and Westfield College, and University College.

The seminar meets during a term on Thursdays from 3:00pm-5:30pm. All are welcome to attend the meetings.

Old 2001 Spring Term Program



London Underground map.
Getting to Imperial College. Do not get the tunnel to Exhibition Road; the maths department is in the Huxley Building, 180 Queen's Gate, opposite Queen's Gate Terrace.                      
Getting to King's College.
Getting to QMW. From Stepney Green tube go left along Mile End Road for about 200 metres. From Mile End tube go west along Mile End Road for about 300 metres.
Getting to UCL.  The nearest tube station is `Euston square', but `Warren Street' and `Euston' are also quite close to the college.

The mathematical department is located on the corner of Gower place and Gordon Street. More information can be found on
if you use the second map link from there (to `Gower Street site'), the department is marked by letters UCLU there (this is because the department
is located directly above the Student Union). There are two sets of lifts in the building: one is for the Student Union, the other is for
the department; make sure you choose the correct one. The lecture room is on the 5th floor; just turn left as you leave the lift.
