XXVI SMS' Session
Equations and Inequalities

Szczyrk, 30th Apr - 3rd May 2009

Students' Mathematical Society kindly invites all interested to take part in an outgoing session which takes place in Szczyrk on 30 April – 3 May 2009. The leading topic of the conference is "Equations and inequalities".

Some organisational issues:
  1. As usual, the conference will take place in the Silesian University holiday resort in Szczyrk, next to Olimpijska Street 56. We propose you to take a train to Bielsko, then go by bus to Szczyrk (towards Salmopol or White Cross), get off at Szczyrk-Waterfall bus stop (the third one after the centre of Szczyrk) and walk several minutes along the street which turns left from the main road, just opposite to the bus stop – that?s Olimpijska Street. A few days before the trip, when all participants are known, we will try to delegate a ?guide” ;). If somebody is going by car, please, let us know about it, so that we could use available space in the car.

  2. If you would like to attend the conference, just tell any member of our Society – you will find us in the room no. 524 - or mail to knm@knm.katowice.pl.
  3. The cost of the conference (exclusive of the drive) is estimated at 50 zł (board and lodging are included).
    You can give us your nutrition preferences, as far as they are in reasonable limits, because we cook ourselves.
  4. > In Szczyrk we get the dishes and a bedding. However, if there are more participants than beds, then people who enrolled last will need to take a carrimat and a sleeping bag with them - those poor souls will be informed earlier. It?s a good idea to have your own mug
    (really practical if there is a lot of people). We remind you also to take a raincoat, warm clothes and a pair of shoes suitable for a mountain trip; if weather permits, maybe we will organise a longer one (of course, for willing only).
  5. We assume it is a scientific session. A participance in the conference doesn?t oblige you to give a talk, but it will be welcomed. The leading topic is "Equations and inequalities". Suggested problems:
    • Where should we be looking for polynomial roots?
    • Different diophantine equations
    • How many real roots does a polynomial possess?
    • Polynomials over big finite fields
    • The Runge-Kutta algorithm
    • Over Riemann zeta function extension
    • Lorenz system of equations
    • Lotka-Volterra system of equations
    • Logistics equation and its connection with the Mandelbrot set
    • Classical proofs of commonly known equations
    • A few words about unusual orders
    Of course, you can choose your own topic. A talk doesn?t need to be neither long nor very complicated mathematically, it can refer to other fields of science as well.
Number of places is limited, so please hurry ;). Please, inform us whether you are going to give a talk and add its topic, if it is the case.
Any questions, remarks or suggestions should be sent to knm@knm.katowice.pl.
See you in Szczyrk!
