Snapshots of modern mathematics

Snapshots of modern mathematics
10 Kas. 2015

Snapshots are short, easy to understand articles on recent topics of mathematical research. They explain mathematical problems and ideas in an accessible and understandable way, and provide exciting insights into current topics of the mathematical community for everyone who is interested in modern mathematics.

The snapshots are all written by real experts in their fields:
At the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, every week 50 to 60 experts from all over the world work together on current challenges in the field of Mathematics. They introduce new results, discuss different approaches and develop new ideas. After each symposium, the institute asks selected participants to explain one aspect of their research in a comprehensible language to a general audience in a few pages. A team of young mathematicians revise the articles in close collaboration with the authors and assists them in communicating complicated matters to a broad audience. Together they prepare an edited version for publication.

Find all published snapshots at the IMAGINARY texts section!
So far, there are 23 Snapshots available in English and German. More are to come. Some of the English articles are already being translated into other languages. You can filter by mathematical field and/or connections to other fields, as well as authors.

The snapshot project is designed to promote the understanding and appreciation of modern mathematics and mathematical research in the general public world-wide. As part of the project “Oberwolfach meets IMAGINARY, it is funded by the Klaus Tschira Stiftung.
