Botswana


1.PNGAbebe R. Tufa (Ethiopia) received one of the three IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowships awarded in 2016 to complete a research that was already in progress. He has obtained his Ph. D. in June 2018 with a thesis on Approximating Solutions of Fixed Point, Variational Inequality and Hammerstein Type Equation Problems, developed in the Department of Mathematics of the University of Botswana, Gaborone, supervised by Prof. Habtu Zegeye Hailu (Botswana International University of Science and Technology) and co-supervised by Dr. Mosalagae Thuto (University of Botswana). After a four years period of study in Botswana he is now back at his home University at Bahir Dar in Ethiopia where he started working as Assistant Professor.

SEAMS School - Partial differential equations for image processing: theory and numerics, Thailand, January 3 – 12, 2018

This school was the first active SEAMS school concerning numerical analysis and
scientific computing of partial differential equations in Thailand. It testifies the ability of
the Silpakorn Dept. of Mathematics to participate in South East Asia (ASEAN)
cooperation. The conference introduced a basis of the theoretical and numerical
mathematical analysis to study partial differential equations arising in image
processing. Theoretical lectures were complemented by practical sessions through
scientific Python software.
A website and a chat group were created to facilitate exchanges between students,
lecturers and organizers. A drive, accessible directly from the website of the school,
contains the lectures, the python script and the list of exercises.

The report can be found here.

The IMU Committee for Women in Mathematics (CWM) welcomes the mathematical community to the World Meeting for Women in Mathematics
(https://www.worldwomeninmaths.org) a satellite event of the ICM 2018.
The conference will bring together mathematicians from all over the world to
think about and discuss gender issues in mathematics, its challenges,
initiatives, and perspectives for the future, with a strong focus on Latin
America.

The World Meeting for Women in Mathematics will take place at Riocentro convention center on July 31, 2018.
Its program includes research talks, group discussions about gender issues
in mathematics, a panel discussion and poster presentation.
There will also be a tribute to Maryam Mirzakhani.
