MATH GENIUSES VISITED IUE
The scientists put math, which lies at the bottom of each development of present day, under the microscope at Izmir University of Economics in order to share information. The expert mathematicians discussed the mystical world of equations at “The Sixth International Workshop on Differential Equations and Applications” (WDEA) that was organized by IUE Department of Mathematics.
More than 100 scientists from 40 universities and 20 different countries including USA, France, Switzerland, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, Czech Republic, and Algeria, presented almost 40 abstracts at the workshop which was publicized by American Mathematical Society (AMS) as well. While the scientists shared the recent developments and reforms in their respective fields, the young researchers presented their studies for review. The organization brought together many scientists in applied mathematics field in Turkey and participants from many universities such as ODTÜ, Bilkent, Koç, Sabancı, Boğaziçi, etc. attended the workshop with their abstracts.
Prof. Dr. İsmihan Bayramoğlu, Dean of IUE Faculty of Arts and Science, indicated that the organization mainly focused on “Differential”, “Dynamic”, “Difference”, and “Stochastic” equations, and it aimed to bring experts, young researchers, undergraduate and graduate students together. Prof. Dr. Bayramoğlu stated the purpose was to support the young researchers especially, he said, “It is very significant to pave the way for young people. The scientists, who are experts in their fields, share the recent developments with their junior colleagues at the workshop. In return, the young researchers get a chance to present their studies to the experts. The workshop, which was successfully organized by IUE Department of Mathematics in 2011before, moved up to an international arena this year. This, too, makes us very proud.”
Prof. Dr. Metin Gürses, Chair of the Scientific Committee for the 6th International Workshop on Differential Equations and Applications, and Lecturer at Bilkent University, pointed out that the models that affect many areas were discussed at the workshop. Gürses stated they decided to organize the workshop every two years and expand it. He said “The theories discussed at the workshop include models that are applicable in many fields mainly genetics, physics, and finance. In this way, we witness applications of math in many fields.”
