What is the $``\vec{w}h\alpha\mathfrak{t}\;\; i\mathbb{S}\ldots\text{?''}$ Seminar?

The $``\vec{w}h\alpha\mathfrak{t}\;\; i\mathbb{S}\ldots\text{?''}$ Seminar is a cycle of talks organized each semester by students at the three universities of Berlin, the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin and the Technische Universität Berlin. Each talk of the $``\vec{w}h\alpha\mathfrak{t}\;\; i\mathbb{S}\ldots\text{?''}$ Seminar is characterized by the following:

  1. It lasts around half an hour.
  2. It introduces a mathematical idea or object answering a question of the form “What is...?”.
  3. It is directed to mathematics students or mathematicians unfamiliar with the exposed field.
  4. It happens in an open and relaxed environment where comments and questions are welcome.

When is the $``\vec{w}h\alpha\mathfrak{t}\;\; i\mathbb{S}\ldots\text{?''}$ Seminar?

The $``\vec{w}h\alpha\mathfrak{t}\;\; i\mathbb{S}\ldots\text{?''}$ Seminar takes place almost every Friday of each of the semesters either as a prelude to a BMS Friday Colloquium or as a stand-alone talk by a student wanting to speak a particular topic. The talks usually take place at 13:00, although there can be variations for those sessions that happen on a non-BMS Friday.
