Workshop Fuchsian Differential Equations

11/05/2022 — 15/05/2022

@ Department of Mathematics, Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon

Fuchsian Differential Equations are ordinary linear equations typically with polynomial coefficients. As such they are susceptible to algebraic and arithmetic methods. 

For instance, their behaviour under reduction modulo a prime $p$ is still full of mysteries and unsolved conjectures. 

We will approach the topic in a very accessible and explicit manner, looking at concrete examples, computational aspects, various conjectures, and a comparison of main techniques.  

Organizer:  Herwig Hauser, Faculty of Mathematics, University of Vienna

Bronze medal for IST/LMAC students at the SWERC 2021-2022 programming contest


@ Milão

A team of three IST/Applied Mathematics and Computation (LMAC) students - David Nassauer, Pedro Dias, and Rui Zhu Wang - won a bronze medal at the South West European Regional Contest (SWERC) 2021-2022.

SWERC is a programming contest focused on algorithmic problem solving and practical coding. It is open to teams from France, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland. SWERC serves as the regional selection phase for the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC).

The 2020-2021 edition was organized by Politecnico di Milano and took place on April 23rd-24th in Milan. Outlaws (David Nassauer, Pedro Dias, and Rui Zhu Wang) ranked 12th among 97 teams from 49 institutions. Congratulations to Outlaws!
