During the weekend of 14-16 June 2013, twenty Swedish upper secondary school teachers met up with eight lecturers from different Swedish universities to develop new lessons in mathematics. This is a short trailer from that weekend. Note! Only in Swedish
A Word from the Director
Welcome to The Mittag-Leffler Institute, the oldest Mathematical Research Centre in the world and arguably one of the most beautiful.
It was founded by Gösta Mittag-Leffler and his wife Signe in 1916 and (given) donated to The Swedish Academy of Science for the use of its important/ impressive/remarkable library and for the publication of Acta Matematica.
In order for Sweden to regain an international, cutting edge position in Mathematics, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, in cooperation with the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, will support 84 prominent researchers in Mathematics during 2014-2022. The 15 first positions have now been filled.
The Abel prize for 2014 goes to Yakov G. Sinai of Princeton University, USA and Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, “for his fundamental contributions to dynamical systems, ergodic theory, and mathematical physics”.
