The abstract for the talk is as follows: In the 19th century, some women published their novels under a pseudonym. In the 20th century, several groups of men (e.g. Blanche Descartes and G. W. Peck) published their mathematics under a pseudonym. This talk will discuss this phenomenon as well as take a look at some of the accessible mathematics these anonymous groups published. We hope to see you there!
