On November 1st, the list of 2017 Class AMS Fellows has been made public.
According to the mission of the program, 'the Fellows of the American Mathematical Society program recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.'
The new international laboratory 'Mirror Symmetry and Automorphic Forms' will open at the Faculty of Mathematics of HSE in 2017. The project of Ludmil Katzarkov (Professor of the University of Miami) won the fifth Mega-grants competition of the Government of the Russian Federation. Our faculty is the only one in the country, where in 2017 will run three laboratories in fundamental mathematics, and two of them are in the framework of this global scientific program of the federal support of scientific research.
Jonathan Gerhard from James Madison University spent one semester studying in Math in Moscow programme run jointly by HSE, Moscow Center for Continuous Mathematical Education, and Independent University of Moscow. During his time in Russia Jonathan took intensive maths courses, studied the Russian language and traveled to several Russian cities.

The sixth issue of HERB dedicated to mathematics is now available. There are three sections in the issue. The first section is devoted to the analysis of mathematical education in the USSR and modern Russia, the second one features the career opportunities for those, who received mathematical education in Russia, and the third section describes the current situation with mathematics in universities.
Pavel Solomatin is one of the first wave of graduates from the HSE Faculty of Mathematics. He successfully graduated from the undergraduate and master’s programmes, and then enrolled in the Leiden University doctoral programme, where he is currently studying number theory under the academic supervision of Bart de Smit.
Austin Mack, a US student at the HSE master’s programme in mathematics, told us about his impressions of living and studying in Moscow.
