Reading Groups

I organize two long-term online reading groups.

The code of our logos are available at github.com/zekiakyol/logos.

Proof-Based Math Readings

Proof-Based Math Readings is a free and independent online reading group where we study mathematics required in economics master’s/PhD programs using an intuitive approach.

This reading group has 25 members for now and accepts new members.

Our syllabuses and application form are available at github.com/zekiakyol/proof-based-math-readings
