• Date: 06/23/2010
Lecturer(s):
Rosona Eldred (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
Location:

University of British Columbia

Description:

In this talk, we'll use classic definitions from calculus of real
variables to motivate what it means to be a polynomial functor of
degree n, the construction of the derivative of a functor and the
basics of the `Taylor Series' of a functor as well as do a few simple
calculations.

Schedule:

3:00 - 4:00pm, WMAX 110.
