Transnational insight into financial and business mathematics
Chemnitz University mathematicians visited once again the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences in Senegal
Prof. Peter Stollmann, Prof. Vladimir Shikhman, and Prof. Alois Pichler of Chemnitz University of Technology, Department Mathematics, held a lecture series at the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in Senegal from December 4th till 8th, 2017. The AIMS Senegal is part of the AIMS-Next-Einstein-Initiative, which has the objective to develop a network of centers of excellence in Africa to train scientists in the field of mathematics. “At the moment, the AIMS Senegal puts its focus on financial and business mathematical subjects, perfect for our lectures to fit in”, said Pichler after the return of the Chemnitz mathematicians.
For three years already, Stollman maintains intensive contact to the endowment chair “Mathematics and its Scientific Applications” of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation at the AIMS Senegal. The endowment chair is supposed to strengthen the university education and mathematical research in Africa, to connect the AIMS Senegal with other German universities, and to support the cooperation of the AIMS centers in Africa among each other. Objective of the cooperation between the AIMS Senegal and Chemnitz University is the exchange of scientists and the early establishment of contacts between doctoral candidates of Chemnitz University and students of the AIMS Senegal. The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation support the cooperation.
