Leiden: talk by Michael Stoll

2-3-2010 (tuesday)

Michael Stoll (Bayreuth university) will be visiting Leiden March 1-4.
He will give a talk on Tuesday, March 2, at 15.30 in room 412 of the
Snellius building.
Solving a diophantine equation
I will demonstrate how one can solve a certain diophantine equation (that was
proposed as a problem at a workshop in Leiden in 2007). This involves the use
of a variety of results and computational techniques, some of which are
fairly recent developments. The talk is based on joint work with Bugeaud,
Mignotte, Siksek and Tengely.

NWO Call for Tenure Track positions

NWO has opened a call for tenure track positions. Proposals for these positions, which include one PhD position for each tenure track position, can be submitted directly to NWO by professors from the 4 mathematics clusters, including Diamant. Diamant professors are warmly encouraged to submit proposals. Read more.

Dion Gijswijt and Jordan Ellenberg independently substantially improve capset bound

A capset in a finite dimensional vector space over the field with 3 elements is a subset that contains no 3-term arithmetic progressions. Dion Gijswijt (TU Delft) and Jordan Ellenberg have independently obtained a bound on the size of a capset that for the first time improves substantially on the trivial bound 3^n.
