Our meetings

We meet everyday in room No 524, on almost every break between lectures, so approximately every 45 minutes :-) Everyone eager to discuss some interesting mathematical problem, feeling a sudden and irresistible urge to become active in the Society, or simply wanting to talk, drink some tea or eat a sandwich are sincerely invited.

More formal meetings are organised whenever the need arises; when a member wants to share some of his thoughts, an appropriate memo appears (at least, it should appear ;)) on the Internet. Members of the Society (and everybody else) should feel free to give a talk on any mathematical topic during the meetings. Previous meeting topics are listed below.

Currently except for typical talk meetings we organise two types of cyclic meetings. First of all, approximately once every two weeks we meet and solve various interesting problems from mathematical competitions. The meetings, called shortly the Jarnik meetings, are held under the tutelage of dr Tomasz Kochanek, SMS' tutor. The second cycle was begun by dr Michał Machura, who proposed to read Issak Yaglom's book A simple non-euclidean geometry and its physical basis. Members of the Society present respective chapters from the book circa every two weeks.

Feel free to join us!
