Interactions between Algebra and Functional Analysis

The aim of the mini-workshop organized in the Institute of Mathematics ASCR from 17 to 21 December 2014 is to bring people working in various areas of algebra, logic, and functional analysis. where similar tools and methods are used.

Organizers: M. Fabian, J. Kąkol, K. Kuhlmann, V. Müller, W. Kubiś (chair)

One Ph.D. student position is available in the Institute of Mathematics. See section **Positions** and the electronic applications system.

The 11th Eduard Čech Lecture: Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, IHES

Friday, 31 October 2014 at 9:30 a.m., in the main lecture hall of the Institute of Mathematics

Jean-Pierre Bourguignon is well known for his contributions to modern differential geometry. He was the president of the French Mathematical Society (1990–1992), and the second president of the European Mathematical Society (1995–1998). Since 1994, and until his retirement in August 2013, he has served mathematicians and physicists all over the world as director of the prestigious research centre Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques at Bures-sur-Yvette, close to Paris. Since 2014 he is the President of the European Research Council (ERC).

Honorary Medal of the Czech Mathematical Society for Professor Alois Kufner

The Czech Mathematical Society awared the Honorary Medal to Professor Alois Kufner for his lifelong contribution to the development of the Czech mathematics and of the Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists. Professor Kufner was among founders of the Czech Mathematical Society and represented Czech mathematicians in the European Mathematical Society as a member of its first Executive Committee.

The Medal
Josef Hlávka Honorary Medal for Professor Miroslav Fiedler

Every year, the prominent foundation "**Nadání Josefa, Marie a Zdeňky Hlávkových**" is awarding Honorary Medals to nestors and founding personalities of the Czech science and art for their lifelong work. Among those who have been awarded the Medal on 16 November 2013, the eve of the National Day of Struggle for Freedom and Democracy, was Professor Miroslav Fiedler, the distinguished member of Department of Mathematical Logic, Algebra and Theoretical Computer Science.

ERC Advanced Grant for Pavel Pudlák

Pavel Pudlák has been awarded ERC Advanced Grant** ****"FEALORA –**** **Feasibility, logic and randomness in computational complexity" for 2014–2018. Another great success: the second ERC Advanced Grant in the Institute of Mathematics and – as in the previous year – the only one awarded to the Czech researcher in 2013. Research of Pudlák's team is motivated by the major unsolved problem in computer science called "P versus NP". They are looking for connections between the computational complexity and the proof complexity which represent two different views of the general phenomenon of complexity.

A call for a post-doc position and for a Ph.D. student position within the FEALORA grant has been opened.
