Mathematics in Twenty First Century

Postgraduate program in Warsaw

The Banach Center of the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, together with the Interdisciplinary Centre of the Mathematical and Computational Modelling of the Warsaw University (ICM) invites Ph.D. students for research visits. Candidates are expected to spend up to one year at the Center during the period 2000 - 2004.

The following topics will be covered (in parentheses the names of some experts in the Training Site in the respective areas are given):

Depending on demand, intensive short courses and working seminars are planned. The students are expected to participate in regular scientific activities at the Banach Center and the Institute. Application and computation-oriented research will be done at the Warsaw University Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling.

The Institute hosting the training site is the largest and most active mathematical centre between Berlin and Moscow. As such it provides an important opportunity for visiting fellows, exposing them to new trends in pure and applied mathematics. In particular it provides:

Financial assistance for a limited number of fellows will be provided (1200 Euro/month + travel support).

Cost of life in Warsaw. A limited number of rooms at the IMPAN building are available (400 Euro +7% VAT per month). Cost of renting studio in the city, not in the very centre, is roughly the same. Food is slightly cheaper than in EU countries.

Who is eligible.

Mathematics in Warsaw
Warsaw houses a major research community of about 200 mathematicians (Ph.D.) representing a broad spectrum of contemporary mathematics, pure and applied, mainly grouped in three major scientific institutions: Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw University and Warsaw Technical University. As a part of the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the Stefan Banach International Mathematical Center organizes semesters, workshops and conferences in spirit of the best tradition of Polish Mathematical School. Last year, in these activities over 500 participants coming from all over the world took part. At the same time, ICM is a place where a broad range of research programs in mathematical aspects of computational sciences and their real-life applications is conducted.
