    Fields, CRM and Perimeter Institutes

    The current list of current seminars for the academic year for Fields can be found here.

    Many past Fields activities were live streamed and then had video posted after the fact, so they are accessible from the Fields website; any that were recorded will display a link to a Fields Live video. Some online seminars include:

  • Toric Topology Research Seminar
  • GANITA Seminar
  • COVID-19 Math Modelling Seminar

    For example, there was a February workshop on COVID-19 done via zoom, whose webpage
    is here.

    Videos of CRM conferences/Videos of CRM talks.

    Most recent talk.

    CRM are currently in the process of listing online events; for updates see CRM homepage and this link.

    Fun on You Tube

    There is lots of neat stuff on You Tube, in addition to the You Tube channels:

  • Cvp7jsbXjx2k8sGEkdtWCA

    For example, there are wonderful videos of the Mandelbrot set: e.g.,

  • (without music!)

    There are descriptions of spinors:


    and fun demonstrations using various gadgets. And some silly stuff:
