[DMANET] Higher mathematics through problem solving - Budapest, June 6 - 10

Summer School in Mathematics, Budapest

The Institute of Mathematics of the Eotvos Lorand University, Budapest is
organizing a one week long summer school in mathematics entitled "Higher
mathematics through problem solving" between June 6 - 10.

The program will consist of problem solving sessions in algebra, number
theory, combinatorics, geometry, analysis, and probability theory, each of
them concentrating on one or two special topics. Participants will get a
brief introduction into the basic notions and results and then individual
work will follow, with the guidance of the lecturers and their assistants.

Titles of the minicourses:
- Algebraic methods for finite geometric problems
- The Banach-Tarski paradox
- Shannon capacity of graphs
- Complete disorder is impossible
- The power of powers
- Matchmakers
- Random walks and ergodicity
- What is typical behaviour? Examples and counter-examples in analysis

The abstracts of the minicourses are available at
