The Institute of Mathematics of the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest
is organizing a one week long summer school in mathematics. This year, the topic of the school will be
A peculiar feature of the most interesting structures and phenomena of the world can be described by networks: a system of individuals with connections between certain pairs of them. These huge networks raise fairly novel, unconventional problems for the mathematician as, in contrast to traditional graph theoretical problems, very large networks (like the Internet) are never completely known, in most cases they are not even well defined. Besides the algorithmic treatment of very large networks, the notions of large graphs and their limits can also be applied successfully for problems from extremal graph theory or from statistical physics.
The aim of the summer school is to give an introduction into the theory of large graphs through four minicourses and three talks, given by experienced senior and young researchers. The school is followed by the conference
celebrating the 70th birthday of László Lovász (homepage of the conference).
The school is aimed at undergraduate, graduate, PhD students and young researchers. If you are planning your future and want to check out our graduate school which offers English language MSc and PhD programs, then this is a good opportunity to do so with a 1-week long, intensive experience.
Also, if you are interested in a true European metropolitan city with a vivid cultural life, then Budapest is an obvious choice.
