Moscow Mathematical Journal Named Most Influential Russian Journal in Mathematics of 2017

The recipients of the annual Web of Science Awards are the most influential scientists, scientific organizations and publications of the year. The Moscow Mathematical Journal has made it into the top quartile in the subject area of mathematics and was announced by jury members to be the most influential Russian scientific journal of 2017.

HSE Will Confer its Own Degrees

A number of research organizations and universities, including HSE, will be able to establish their own academic degrees, under a decree signed by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

‘Mirror Symmetry Was Discovered by Physicists, But Very Quickly Got the Attention of Mathematicians…’

‘Mirror Symmetry Was Discovered by Physicists, But Very Quickly Got the Attention of Mathematicians…’
The HSE International Laboratory for Mirror Symmetry and Automorphic Forms, which is among several international laboratories to recently open within the Higher School of Economics, was created in December 2016 as part of the Russian government’s mega-grants program. Below, the lab’s academic supervisor, Ludmil Katzarkov, along with deputy heads Valery Gritsenko and Viktor Przyjalkowski, explain why the laboratory is fully capable of becoming a unique multidisciplinary unit dedicated to the study of mirror symmetry, automorphic forms, and number theory.

HSE Helps Launch Poncelet Interdisciplinary Scientific Centre

The signing of the agreement to create the French-Russian Interdisciplinary Scientific Centre J.-V. Poncelet
On May 22, Russian and French scientists met in Moscow to sign an agreement to create the French-Russian Interdisciplinary Scientific Centre J.-V. Poncelet (ISCP), which the Higher School of Economics helped set up.

Emil Akhmedov, Daniil Kalinov and Fedor Popov on distinguishing black holes

Emil Akhmedov, Daniil Kalinov and Fedor Popov on distinguishing black holes
Scientists from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, the Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Physics, and the National Research University Higher School of Economics have devised a method of distinguishing black holes from compact massive objects that are externally indistinguishable from one another. The method involves studying the energy spectrum of particles moving in the vicinity, which can be continuous or discrete. The findings have been published in Physical Review D.

On November 1st, the list of 2017 Class AMS Fellows has been made public.
According to the mission of the program, 'the Fellows of the American Mathematical Society program recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.'

Tenure-track positions of Assistant Professor

The Faculty of Mathematics of the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, Russia, invites applications for full-time, tenure-track positions of Assistant Professor in Mathematics. Knowledge of Russian is an asset but not required as teaching may be conducted in English. Although representatives of all areas of Pure Mathematics will be considered, some preference may be given to candidates working in Mathematical Analysis and Probability Theory.

International laboratory for Mirror Symmetry and Automorphic Forms

The new international laboratory 'Mirror Symmetry and Automorphic Forms' will open at the Faculty of Mathematics of HSE in 2017. The project of Ludmil Katzarkov (Professor of the University of Miami) won the fifth Mega-grants competition of the Government of the Russian Federation. Our faculty is the only one in the country, where in 2017 will run three laboratories in fundamental mathematics, and two of them are in the framework of this global scientific program of the federal support of scientific research.

Postdoctoral research positions in Pure Mathematics

The Faculty of Mathematics at National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE) in Moscow, Russia, invites applications for postdoctoral research positions in Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Physics.

Higher Education in Russia and Beyond: From Russia with Math

The sixth issue of HERB dedicated to mathematics is now available. There are three sections in the issue. The first section is devoted to the analysis of mathematical education in the USSR and modern Russia, the second one features the career opportunities for those, who received mathematical education in Russia, and the third section describes the current situation with mathematics in universities.
