16th mathematical hike - June 23rd 2018 PDF Print

Dear Friends of Mathematics and Hikes,

You are cordially invited to the 16th mathematical hike planned on June 23rd 2018.

Start at 9:17 at the train stop in Rožná. We go by train at 8:06 from the main train station in Brno (zones 100+101+ 6 additional).

We have planned a hike of 25 km going by the castle Pernštejn, over the hills and through some small villages. You can end the hike after 8.5 km at the train stop in Nedvědice (after visiting the castle). We plan to officially end at the train stop in Borač, return to Brno by train (zones 100+101+ 4 additional).


We wish you a successful exam period and a nice summer.


Jana Bartoňová and Jonatan Kolegar, organizers

The main research areas of the department are:

  • Category theory
  • Number theory
  • Ordered sets
  • Semigroup theory
  • Geometric complex analysis
  • Lie theory and geometric theory differential equations
  • Algebraic and geometric structrues of Mathematical Physics
