South African Theory and Computational School: Mathematical Structures

The following (free) online course will run throughout the second semester of 2022:

South African Theory and Computational School: Mathematical Structures

It is presented by Zurab Janelidze and other members of the Mathematical Structures Research Programme at NITheCS. To enroll, please send an email asap to both of the following addresses: zurab@sun.ac.za and satacs@nithecs.ac.za.

The course is aimed at postgraduate students and academics in theoretical and computational sciences. The course will introduce some of the basic “mathematical structures” (sets equipped with a structure a la Bourbaki) that play a fundamental role in mathematics as well as its applications in theoretical physics and computer science. See https://nithecs.ac.za/south-african-theory-and-computational-school/ for more information.

Note that this course is different from the 6-week NGA Category Theory Course starting 1st of August, presented by Zurab Janelidze, for which one can register at the following link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScBYUdY575HTvn54_jp0TS09bivaSk25NDJqUIdkQKH6xy5QQ/viewform

African Mathematics Seminar

https://sites.google.com/view/africa-math-seminar/home

AfMS aims at a weekly seminar for the whole of Africa, alternating through the different countries while giving different regions their chance to host the seminar.

The main goal of AfMS is building mathematical networks across Africa and showcasing African mathematical talent. In practice, this means speakers will mostly hail from Africa, or have a strong relationship with African mathematics. But not necessarily always. The organizing team will include distinguished speakers every now and then for networking and research exchange with the rest of the world.

For a list of talks, and more information, please click on the link at the top of this message.
