Five interns spent 4 weeks with us at the Institute of Mathematics. And they did a really great job under the guidance of Benjamin Hackl and Roswitha Rissner. The explanatory videos they produced are online at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLP96UIESN83-AjDAPqk7qNdB0vauJ9sdF
Under which conditions can mathematics be used to calculate how many and which animals will live where, how viruses will spread, and how strong our economic performance will be tomorrow? Christian Aarset has developed mathematical models that allow us to calculate the future. He recently completed his doctoral thesis under the supervision of Christian Pötzsche.
The approval of this project represents a milestone in the success story of the Departments of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Klagenfurt. It’s also a great achievement on the part of the participating professors and particularly for the 32-year-old coordinator, Michaela Szölgyenyi. Starting in autumn 2020, the project will employ around one dozen international young scientists in Klagenfurt.
The International Mathematics Day is an event proclaimed by UNESCO and supported by the International Mathematical Union, which takes place annually on 14 March. The day is also known as π-day, because: The decimal expansion of the circle number π begins with 3.1415…. — and especially in the American-speaking world, 14 March is written as “3/14”.
