The Bernoulli Center for Fundamental Studies is launching a new program in collaboration with the Associate Vice-Presidency for Student Affairs and Outreach, the School of Basic Sciences and School of Computer and Communication Sciences, to promote fundamental sciences at an early stage with emphasis on the development of mathematical skills.
The Bernoulli Center for Fundamental Studies is launching a new maths competition for undergraduate students in Switzerland. The competition will be first open to EPFL and neighboring institutions, due to logistic constraints, and it will then expand to a broader set of universities. The goal of the competition is to promote the development of mathematical and problem solving skills in a fun environment, where students from different disciplines and areas of Switzerland can interact among themselves and with the researchers of the Bernoulli Center. The competition will also help selecting EPFL teams for other mathematical competitions.
The Bernoulli Center for Fundamental Studies is hosting classes for Swiss high-school students in collaboration with the Associate Vice-Presidency for Student Affairs and Outreach, the School of Basic Sciences and School of Computer and Communication Sciences. This concerns the “Euler Course” (https://www.epfl.ch/education/education-and-science-outreach/fr/cours-euler/ ), a new “Turing Course” under development between the Bernoulli Center and the School of Computer and Communication Sciences, and a physics course. The center provides a stimulating environment for students to learn about the new material next to the advanced scientific programs run by renowned scientific visitors, with special guest lectures given by some of our visitors to the students.
The Assyr Abdulle Lecture is a public lecture given periodically by a visitor of the Bernoulli Center for Fundamental Studies.
Prof. Assyr Abdulle was a faculty member at the Mathematics Institute at EPFL from 2009 until 2021. He was a world-renowned expert in the field of numerical methods for stochastic differential equations and multiscale problems. He was a passionate researcher engaged in promoting mathematics at EPFL. He was in particular engaged in the development of the Youth at Bernoulli program. This public lecture celebrates his memory.
The Journée Georges de Rham has been introduced in 1991 by the Troisième Cycle Romand de mathématiques. Since then, it is organized each year during the Spring semester by the mathematics departments of EPFL and of the University of Geneva, and it features two speakers of international fame. The Journée de Rham aims at presenting current developments in mathematics, as well as at stimulating interactions amongst researchers in mathematics and related fields.
