Center of Mathematics and Applications of University of Beira Interior (CMA-UBI) is promoting a What is…? seminar series.

The What is…? seminars aim to expose a variety of mathematical themes for a wide audience. The topics go from mathematical culture issues to new and challenging ideas in distinct areas of Mathematics. In the audience we expect mathematicians and graduate students which are not necessarily familiar with the theme. These topics will certainly enrich the mathematical culture of researchers, teachers and students, and spark their curiosity to new subjects.

Due to Covid-19 these seminars will run for the next sessions in an on-line format (ZOOM).
