# Overview: Welcome to this virtual edition of the 2021 seminar!

That's an odd concept, especially asynchronously.... So we're going to be using this Wiki to create a class "discussion", if you will, about a variety of topics in mathematics. The emphasis here will be on studying a number of (what I hope are really) interesting topics in Mathematics, many of which we don't encounter in the standard math major's curriculum. That's a pity, and one of the reasons why I'm including them here, for us.
