Online lecture — professor Cleve Moler, Chief Mathematician, MathWorks : How the SVD Saves the Universe?

SIAM Student Chapter Prague would like to invite you to an online lecture of professor Cleve Moler, a chief mathematician, chairman, and cofounder of MathWorks. (Makers of Matlab and Simulink software.) Please see the attached poster and Student Chapter’s webpage (http://siam.cuni.cz/cs/events/) for details.

List of bachelor/master thesis topics

Dear colleagues, Dear students,

Please see below for a regularly updated list of topics for Bc/MSc theses. The list contains only topics offered by people who sent us (Vít Průša, prusv@karlin.mff.cuni.cz) an email with a request for publication on our webpages. I recall that other topics can be found in the Study Information System, and that other people prefer to be contacted by students before they officially propose a topic for Bc/MSc thesis. If you want to contact someone, please do not hesitate to do so.

Zdeněk Mašín (Institute of Theoretical Physics, Charles University): Efficient computation of Coulomb integrals and their applications to collision problems in quantum mechanics

Topics of bachelor/master thesis — meeting

Dear colleagues, Dear students,

Please let me (Vít Průša, prusv@karlin.mff.cuni.cz) know — as soon as possible — whether you are interested in an online meeting wherein we would discuss prospective topics of bachelor/master theses. Please keep in mind that most of the prospective topics are not listed in the Study Information System, some people simply prefer to submit a topic into the Study Information System once they have discussed the details with the student who will work on the given topic. If you are interested we would meet together sometime in the week from 12th to 16th October.

Researchers who are interested in submitting a thesis topic can do it either via the Study Information System, or they can prepare a brief description of the topic. The thesis proposal can be subsequently posted at our webpage, or it can be presented in person at the meeting.

Update, 19th October 2020: The meeting will take place on 29th October 2020 at 19:10 via ZOOM, see the details below. Please log in with your real name and couple of minutes in advance.

Vít Průša is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Winter semester 2020/2021 — preliminary notes

Dear colleagues, Dear students,

the beginning of winter semester is approaching. We would like to draw your attention to the following issues.

Changes in study plans

Lecture Matrix iterative methods I (NMNV407) that is on the list of compulsory lectures for students in the study programme “Mathematical Modelling in Physics and Technology” (MSc. in Mathematics) and in the study programme “Mathematical and Computational Modelling in Physics” (MSc. in Physics) has been renamed to Analysis of matrix iterative methods – principles and interconnections (NMNV412), and it has been moved to the summer semester. The number of credits and the number of hours per week remain unchanged. The content of the new/renamed lecture remains almost the same, and the new/renamed lecture is from the perspective of Study Information System and the study plan equivalent to the old one.

Lecture Solution of nonlinear algebraic equations (NMNV501) that has the status of a compulsory elective lecture in the study programme “Mathematical Modelling in Physics and Technology” (MSc. in Mathematics) and in the study programme “Mathematical and Computational Modelling in Physics” (MSc. in Physics) will be in the academic year 2020/2021 taught for the last time. Starting from 2021/2022 it will be replaced by the lecture Numerical optimization methods 1 (NMNV503).

Lecture Nonlinear functional analysis (NMNV402) that has the status of an optional lecture in the study programme “Mathematical Modelling in Physics and Technology” (MSc. in Mathematics) and that is on the list of compulsory elective lectures in the study programme “Mathematical and Computational Modelling in Physics” (MSc. in Physics) has been renamed to Nonlinear differential equations (NMNV406). The content of the new/renamed lecture remains almost the same, and the new/renamed lecture is from the perspective of Study Information System and the study plan equivalent to the old one.

New lectures

We are happy to announce that Christoph Allolio who has recently joined our group is going to teach two new lectures, namely Simulation and theory of biological and soft matter systems I – Biopolymers, ions and small molecules and Simulation and theory of biological and soft matter systems II – Interfaces, self-assembly and networks. Everyone who is interested in the subject matter is most welcome.

Finally, we would also like to recall that Michal Pavelka is teaching two interesting lectures, namely GENERIC – non-equilibrium thermodynamics (NMMO463) and Non-equilibrium thermodynamics of electrochemistry (NMMO660). Everyone who is interested in the subject matter is most welcome.

Measures regarding the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and the COVID-19 disease

It is very likely that COVID-19 will have an impact at the organisation of the beginning of the semester and on teaching in the semester. Please follow the webpage maintained by the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics for up-to-date info.

PhD positions at the School for Advanced Studies in Napoli

Dear colleagues, let me draw you attention to the following announcement.

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to inform you that we just opened 6 PhD positions for the PhD program
Mathematical and Physical Sciences for Advanced Materials and Technologies
at the School for Advanced Studies in Napoli (Scuola Superiore Meridionale)

Let me give some basic information about the program

–  4 years program. The first year will be mostly focused on following the courses that will be given at the School in Napoli the remaining years will be devoted to research activity
–  the grant is 1.500 euros per month (after taxes); this sum will be increased of a 50% in case the student wants to spend some time abroad to carry on the research program
– every student will receive a small sum (3.800 euros per year) to travel or to attend conferences and workshops.


Further information on the PhD program may be found at

http://www.ssm.unina.it/en/mathematical-and-physical-sciences-for-advanced-materials-and-technologies_eng/

Please, circulate this announcement among your undergraduate students or contact that maybe interested.
