# Workshop on Matrix Factorizations – Reading Course

# Reading Course: Matrix Factorizations

In preparation for the **Workshop on Matrix Factorizations** the BIREP group will hold a seminar on the topic. It is a continuation of the seminar held at the beginning of the semester (which focused on Yoshino's book).

The seminar takes place every **Wednesday** at **16:15**, and some Fridays. It meets in **V5-227**.
