Summer School in Mathematics at the Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE Budapest)

The Institute of Mathematics of the Eötvös University is organizing a
one week long summer school in mathematics entitled “Discrete
algorithms and applications”.

Discrete algorithms play an essential role in everyday life. The
accelerating development of technology constantly requires new ideas
and solutions to problems arising from real life applications. Many
well-known technology products that have became the integral part of
our life – such as computers, mobile phones, GPS, cryptography, or
the internet itself – are heavily based on such algorithms.

The aim of the summer school is to give an insight into the area of
discrete algorithms. The lectures will discuss both theoretical and
applied results. The participants will also have the opportunity to
get acquainted with the LEMON C++ template library that provides
efficient implementations of common data structures and algorithms.

The summer school is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students in
Mathematics, Computer Science, Sciences, or in any related program.
The mini courses we offer highlight areas of discrete mathematics in
which the Institute of Mathematics has a traditionally strong record.
The goal of the courses is to introduce students to current
directions in research that are accessible at undergraduate and
graduate level and which are relevant to the industrial applications
as well.

Lecturers and lecture titles:

  • István Fekete, István László: Mathematical analysis of satellite
  • Róbert Freud: Hundred thousand dollars for a prime number
  • Katalin Gyarmati: Pseudorandom binary sequences and lattices
  • Zoltán Halasi: Permutation group algorithms
  • Alpár Jüttner: LEMON: Library for Efficient Modeling and
    Optimization in Networks
  • Tamás Király: Graph algorithms and LP duality
  • Zoltán Király: Recent techniques in algorithm design
  • Tamás Kis: Scheduling problems and algorithms
  • Péter Simon: Modeling propagation processes on networks by using
    differential equations

The school will be held between June 6th – June 10th, 2016, at the
Institute of Mathematics, Budapest (Hungary).

Deadline for applications is May 31st 2016. Information for how to
