PKU Mathematics Delegation Visited Russia

Release date:October 10,2019

From September 30 to October 3, a delegation of 10 mathematicians from Peking University visited Russia. The School of Mathematical Sciences of Peking University has maintained close cooperation with universities and research institutes in Russia such as Moscow State University. On April 15, a delegation from the Department of Mathematical Mechanics of Moscow University visited Peking University, and the two sides held a forum. This visit to Russia will further promote in-depth cooperation between Peking University and Russian universities and research institutes in the field of mathematics.

 

Headed by Professor Shi Yuguang, Deputy Dean of the School of Mathematical Sciences, and Professor Fan Huijun, Dean of the Department of Mathematics, the delegation consisted of teachers from the School of Mathematical Sciences and Beijing International Center for Mathematical Research.

 

From September 30 to October 1, the delegation visited the Department of Mathematical Dynamics of Moscow State University, in return of the university’s visit in April. The delegation visited the Auditorium of Moscow State University where Chairman Mao once delivered a speech entitled “the World is Yours” to Chinese students studying in Soviet Union in 1957.
