Prague Summer School on Discrete Mathematics 2018

The second Prague Summer School on Discrete Mathematics was held in the week July 16-20. Three lecture courses for 42 participants from fourteen countries were delivered by Piotr Micek (Jagiellonian University, Poland), Aleksandar Nikolov (University of Toronto, Canada), and Péter Pál Pach (Budapest University of Technology, Hungary and University of Warwick, United Kingdom). These courses covered recent breakthrough results of the speakers. Piotr Micek talked on structural aspects of partially ordered set. Mathematical and computational aspects of combinatorial discrepancy were covered in the lectures by Aleksandar Nikolov. Péter Pál Pach focused on the so-called polynomial method. The highlight of his lectures was the cap set problem. This problem, which has been central for mathematics since the work of the Fields medailist Klaus Roth in the 1950's, was solved by Pach in collaboration with Ernie Croot, Vsevolod Lev, Jordan Ellenberg, and Dion Gijswijt only in 2016.
The school was organized by the Computer Science Institute of the Charles University and the Institute of Mathematics of the CAS, with a financial support from Charles University, the Czech Academy of Sciences and the RSJ Foundation. The next edition of the school will take place on the premises of the Institute of Mathematics of the CAS in 2020. More information about the school can be found at http://pssdm.math.cas.cz/.

Barbara and Jaroslav Zemánek Prize

The Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences established the Barbara and Jaroslav Zemánek Prize supervised by the Barbara and Jaroslav Zemánek Fund. The prize is granted annually to a person younger than 35 years at the end of the year preceding the award of the prize, and it is granted for achievements in the fields in which Jaroslav Zemánek was active, i.e. functional analysis, with special emphasis on operator theory.
Jaroslav Zemánek (3. 9. 1946 – 18. 2. 2017) worked in the Institute of Mathematics CAS in 1969–1982. Among five members of the Prize Jury is Vladimír Müller from the Institute of Mathematics CAS.


Waves in Flows, Summer School 2018,
August 27 - August 31, Prague

Waves are one of the most distinct and most important phenomena in fluid mechanics. The aim of this summer school is to present a comprehensive series of lectures on various aspects of waves and their role in mathematical analysis and numerical simulation of different types of flows.

PhD positions within Einstein Visiting Fellow programme at TU Berlin

Two PhD scholarships are available in the framework of the Einstein Visiting Fellow programme at TU Berlin within the Collaborative Research Center ”Control of self-organizing nonlinear systems: Theoretical methods and concepts of application”. A successful candidate is supposed to work under the supervision of Eduard Feireisl on problems related to the mathematical theory of fluid mechanics. Basic knowledge of PDE’s and functional analysis, including the framework of Sobolev spaces and weak solutions is required.
The scholarship is granted for 3 years and amounts to about 1450 Euro per month (tax free, no insurances included) starting April 2018. The PhD student is supposed to settle at TU Berlin. For more information contact Eduard Feireisl (feireisl@math.cas.cz) or Etienne Emmrich (emmrich@math.tu-berlin.de). Please, send your application together with a CV via e-mail to diffeqs@math.tu-berlin.de not later than by March 4, 2018.
