ELTE Summer School in Mathematics

6–10 June 2016

One-week summer school for undergraduate and graduate students in Mathematics, Computer Science or Sciences, organized by the Institute of Mathematics, ELTE, Budapest. If you are planning your future and want to check our graduate school that offers an English language MSc program, then this is a good opportunity to do so with a one-week long intensive experience.

Topic: "Discrete algorithms and applications"

Discrete algorithms play an essential role in everyday life. The accelerating development of technology constantly requires new ideas and solutions to problems arising from real life applications. Many well-known technology products that have became the integral part of our life – such as computers, mobile phones, GPS, cryptography, or the internet itself – are heavily based on such algorithms.
The aim of the summer school is to give an insight into the area of discrete algorithms. The lectures will discuss both theoretical and applied results. The participants will also have the opportunity to get acquainted with the LEMON C++ template library that provides efficient implementations of common data structures and algorithms.

Paula Louw’s story about Szentendre

„As soon as you get off the train, leave the station and start wandering through the cobblestoned streets you can feel Szentendre’s laid-back atmosphere. The streets in the town are filled with brightly coloured buildings, historic churches, sculptures, cafés and interesting shops. One of the most iconic and unique sights of the town center are the large, colourful mismatched lamp shades strewn above the streets.”

One of our Campus Buddy volunteers, Paula Louw from South-Africa has written a wonderful review about this mediterranean-like city, Szentendre, which has many things to offer for travallers. This town has its own unique atmosphere as several folks lived here throughout history.
