HSE University Researchers to Speak at the International Congress of Mathematicians

HSE University Researchers to Speak at the International Congress of Mathematicians
The speakers of the International Congress of Mathematicians, a key global mathematics event held every four years by the International Mathematical Union, have been announced. The next ICM will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia, in July 2022. Five researchers from the HSE Faculty of Mathematics will present their papers at the congress.

‘We Managed to Create Another Centre of Mathematical Life in Moscow’

‘We Managed to Create Another Centre of Mathematical Life in Moscow’
In celebration of Russia’s Year of Science and Technology, we continue our series about HSE University’s international laboratories, which are headed by world-class scientists and scholars. The first of these, the Laboratory of Algebraic Geometry and Its Applications, was established in October 2010. Below, Laboratory Head Dmitry Kaledin discusses the Lab’s history, research, achievements, and current activities.

HSE Faculty of Mathematics Receives Mega-Grant from the Russian Government

HSE Faculty of Mathematics Receives Mega-Grant from the Russian Government
43 projects from all over the country were awarded grants in Russia’s Eighth Mega-Grant Competition. HSE University’s application in support of the creation of a world-class laboratory in mathematics was among the winners. The academic supervisor of the new laboratory will be Professor Michael Shapiro of Michigan State University (USA).

Mathematics of Natural Choices: The Borda Count and Independence of Irrelevant Alternatives

Mathematics of Natural Choices: The Borda Count and Independence of Irrelevant Alternatives
Eric Maskin spoke at a recent research seminar held by the Centre in which he proposed a modified independence of irrelevant alternatives condition (IIA) and demonstrated that the voting rule satisfies modified IIA, Arrow’s other conditions, and May’s axioms if and only if it is the Borda count, i.e., rank-order voting. Fuad Aleskerov discussed how this affected the collective choice theory, elaborating on various choice models, starting from the Condorcet paradox.

‘In Mathematics, It May Be That We Don’t Discover Anything; We Just Make Things Up’

‘In Mathematics, It May Be That We Don’t Discover Anything; We Just Make Things Up’
In 2018, the HSE International Laboratory of Mirror Symmetry and Automorphic Forms established a new school in Moscow called ‘Hodge Theory: Old and New’ to facilitate cutting-edge research by young and promising mathematicians.

Two HSE Projects Win ‘Mega-Grant’ Competition

Two HSE Projects Win ‘Mega-Grant’ Competition
A ‘Mega-Grant’ Competition for ground-breaking research projects funded by the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education was held for the seventh time, and this year’s competition winners included two projects that will be based at HSE University campuses. One research group will study dynamic systems at HSE – Nizhny Novgorod, and a new social neurobiology laboratory will begin work at HSE University in Moscow.

‘Our Whole Life Is a Dynamic System’

‘Our Whole Life Is a Dynamic System’
Recently the Laboratory of Topological Methods in Dynamics, which is headed by Professor Olga Pochinka on HSE’s Nizhny Novgorod campus, received international status. Professor Pochinka spoke with the HSE News Service about the applied use of research in fundamental mathematics and her grand plans for the future.  This interview is the first of a special series on HSE’s international laboratories.

Conference on ‘Topological Methods in Dynamics and Related Topics’ Held in Nizhny Novgorod
During the New Year holidays, the first international conference on ‘Topological Methods in Dynamics and Related Topics’ was held at HSE. The event was organised by the Department of Fundamental Mathematics of the Faculty of Informatics, Mathematics, and Computer Science (HSE Nizhny Novgorod).

Springer Nature, HSE and Skoltech to Publish Book Series in Mathematics

Moscow Lectures, a new series of books in English, is set to be published by Springer Nature. The series is issued jointly by HSE and Skoltech, and its Editor-in-Chief is Alexey Gorodentsev, Professor at the HSE Faculty of Mathematics. Twelve volumes are currently in preparation and the first volume will be published at the beginning of June 2018. The series builds on the outstanding research and education in the field of mathematics in Moscow. It is aimed at graduate and undergraduate students, as well as lecturers and researchers, across the globe.
