The Vinberg Distinguished Lecture Series

The Vinberg Distinguished Lecture Series aims at bringing together mathematicians interested in the wide dissemination of ideas from various domains of pure and applied mathematics. 

During his lifetime, È. B. Vinberg has made outstanding contributions to many branches of mathematics, such as Lie groups and algebraic groups representation theory, invariant theory, hyperbolic geometry, automorphic forms, and discrete subgroups of Lie groups. We hope to carry on Vinberg’s legacy and bring together a wider community of mathematicians interested in the domains mentioned above. as well as other fields of study.

Coming TALKS

The first talk is scheduled for April 2023. Check back soon.
