You are cordially invited on our next Science and Research Seminar given by Dr. Kristijan Tabak on the topic: "Group Theory and Applications”
Seminar will be held on Friday, April 20th at 17:00 at VC
room in Zagreb and Dubrovnik.
In mathematics and abstract algebra, group theory studies the algebraic structures known as groups. The concept of a group is central to abstract algebra: other well-known algebraic structures, such as rings, fields, and vector spaces, can all be seen as groups endowed with additional operations and axioms.
Groups recur throughout mathematics, and the methods of group theory have influenced many parts of algebra. Linear algebraic groups and Lie groups are two branches of group theory that have experienced advances and have become subject areas in their own right.
Various physical systems, such as crystals and the hydrogen atom, may be modelled by symmetry groups. Thus group theory and the closely related representation theory have many important applications in physics, chemistry, and materials science. Group theory is also central to public key cryptography.
One of the most important mathematical achievements of the 20th century was the collaborative effort, taking up more than 10,000 journal pages and mostly published between 1960 and 1980, that culminated in a complete classification of finite simple groups.
Most students who join RIT Croatia say that writing essays in high school was boring, unimportant or even traumatic. In this informal talk, Rebecca will share her experience helping students engage and enjoy their own writing while freeing them from some of the obstacles that have held them back in the past. She explains her "logic and magic" approach to writing, developed over nearly 20 years of teaching at RIT Croatia.
On behalf of Research and Scholarship Committee we are happy to invite you to join our next seminar delivered by Peter Schmidt on the topic of "Does a Tax Exemption of Retained Profits Provide Investment Incentives? - Evidence from Croatia 2013-2016"
This talk familiarizes the audience with nonlinear and networked control systems starting off with real-life examples.
Topics on "The use of grammar learning strategies in relation to the foreign language being learned and language learning level" and "The Role of L2 Proficiency in the Acquisition of Third Language (Spanish)"
