In view of the pandemic, and because of the impossibility of organizing the seminars in the usual way, the sessions of March and June 2020 of the Séminaire Betty B. and the Séminaire N. Bourbaki have been cancelled. The corresponding talks will be rescheduled. We hope that the seminar will be able to restart in the Fall 2020.
