Arnold's Mathematical Seminar

This seminar was started by V.I.Arnold in the 1960's. It is dedicated to singularity theory and related topics (which, of course, include a big part of mathematics).

For many years, the seminar meets on Tuesdays, 16:20 -- 18:00 in room no. 14-14 of the main building of Moscow State University. Since 1993, the Parisian branch of the seminar meets at the same time in the Jussieu Mathematical Institute (formerly in Ecole Normale Superieure).
