The Basic Notions Seminar Series is inspired by a similar seminar series held at Harvard University. The idea is to present, in each lecture, a short introduction to some basic mathematical concept. The aim is not for the audience to become experts on the subject but rather to develop a better understanding and gain some working knowledge of the concepts presented.
