Beginners To an Advanced Course on Group Theory

Need 100 members to start!

Hello, everyone I, Arkabrata Das would be organizing an online workshop on group theory. The lectures would be live-streamed on my youtube channel. I am planning to start this course from 22 nd, April 2020. There would be two to three sessions per week and each session would be one hour long. There will be assignments every week. The sessions would be free of cost and I need at least 100 members to start the course. Please do share it among your friends and please do tell them to fill up this sign up form on the right side of this page. As soon as it reaches the 100 limits, I would email you all the details about the live streaming.
