Fields medalist Terence Tao will give a lecture on his proof of Sendov’s conjecture

In December 2020, Prof. Tao managed to make a major breakthrough in the proof of Sendov’s conjecture about the distribution of the critical points of a complex polynomial, proving this conjecture for sufficiently high degree polynomials.

The Nobel Prize in Physics for 2020 was awarded to a mathematician

This year Nobel prize in Physics is awarded for two independent contributions. One half was awarded to Roger Penrose for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity, the other half jointly to Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy. Roger Penrose is an eminent British mathematician and mathematical physicist. He is Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford. Penrose has made contributions to the mathematical physics of general relativity and cosmology. This year he was awarded half of the Nobel prize for Physics for his analysis of black hole formation in general relativity. His main contribution is the [...]

Tenth International Conference on Digital Presentation and Preservation of Cultural and Scientific Heritage—DiPP2020

The Tenth International Conference on Digital Presentation and Preservation of Cultural and Scientific Heritage—DiPP2020 aims at presenting innovative results, research projects, and applications in the field of digitisation, documentation, archiving, representation, and preservation of global and national tangible and intangible cultural and scientific heritage. The main focus is to provide open access to digitised cultural heritage and to set up sustainable policies for its continuous digital preservation and conservation. The priority area is the digital presentation and preservation of cultural and historical objects under conditions of risk, including those from the Burgas region. The forum will demonstrate innovative technologies and prototypes, including digital repositories, digital archives, virtual museums, and digital libraries, which result from established practices and achievements in [...]

14 March – the International Day of Mathematics

The International Day of Mathematics (IDM) is a worldwide celebration. Each year on March 14 all countries will be invited to participate through activities for both students and the general public in schools, museums, libraries, and other spaces. March 14 was chosen as the date for the IDM because it was already celebrated in many countries as Pi Day, based on the fact that some countries write it as 3/14 and the mathematical constant π is approximately 3.14. The IDM celebration expands Pi Day to include the whole spectrum of mathematics. Every year IDM will announce a new theme to flavor the celebration, spark creativity and bring light to connections between mathematics and all sorts of fields, concepts, and ideas. The theme for [...]

Mathematics Days in Sofia – MDS 2020

The conference is organized by the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in collaboration with the Union of the Bulgarian Mathematicians and the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics of Sofia University. One of the main goals of the conference Mathematics Days in Sofia (MDS) is to bring together Bulgarian mathematicians and computer scientists working all over the world. In this way, the event will enrich the relations between the mathematicians working in Bulgaria and the Bulgarian mathematical diaspora. The first edition of MDS was held in 2014 at the initiative of a number of prominent Bulgarian mathematicians working in Bulgaria and abroad and attended by more than 300 participants from all over the world. The second conference was organized in 2017 thus making MDS a traditional meeting [...]
