On December 14-16, 2016, the members of the Mathematics Faculty’s International Advisory Board visited the faculty and met with students, faculty, and staff.
During the visit, International Advisory Board members discussed the strategic academic unit ‘Mathematics, Computer Science, and Information Technology’, attended a presentation by international laboratories associated with the faculty, discussed the students’ letter on the content of the basic subjects taught during the 1st and 2nd years of study, and analyzed the main challenges faced by the faculty.
On December 16, the last day of the visit, the board members offered their recommendations to the university administration (Rector and Vice-rectors for research and educational activities).
During the visit, International Advisory Board members also presented their reports at faculty research seminars: Pierre Deligne gave a lecture ‘Report on non-congruence subgroups of SL(2,Z)’, Sergey Fomin spoke on ‘Noncommutative Schur functions’, Nikita Nekrasov on ‘Gauge theories and quantum integrable systems’, and Stanislav Smirnov on ‘Clusters, loops and trees in the Ising model’. The International Advisory Board will produce a report following the visit. The report on the previous visit by the board members can be found here.
