Mathematical Physics Seminars
2012 - 2013
 

SimonFest
March 27–31, 2006

**********

Since 1982, Barry Simon has run the annual Western States Mathematical Physics Meeting for two (or initially 2.5) days in the Winter. "Mathematical Physics" is interpreted in the broad sense (closer to the union than the intersection).
