The Kickoff of the MathCore Research Training Group is scheduled for June 6, 17h, until open end. It will take place in the Festung Mark in Magdeburg.
The preliminary program is the following.
High school students learn how to express the solution of a quadratic equation in one unknown in terms of its three coefficients. This lecture asks the why question, and it offers an emphatic answer, by discussing the nature of mathematics and its non-linear models. Many colourful pictures offer a first glimpse into applied algebraic geometry.
