The anatomy of the biological structures in human brain plays an important role in study and diagnosis of medical conditions. The extraction of these structures in DMR images need appropriate methods and modelling. In this work, two standard segmentation methods are discussed. We have used deformable models and the dimensionality reduction method to project the data from high dimension to very small dimensions. On the projected lower dimensional data, we employed the classical k-means clustering for segmentation. Novelty in this work consists in exploitation of the similarity measures for the voxels based on the properties of Riemannian symmetric spaces, as well as quaternionic representation of transformations and their polar decompositions.

Jaromír Šimša will receive the Paul Erdös Award PDF Print


Jaromír Šimša will receive

the Paul Erdös Award of the World Federation of National Mathematics Competitions for 2020; this award is biannually delivered to at most three mathematicians all over the world.

The Paul Erdös Award was established to recognise contributions of mathematicians who have played a significant role in the development of mathematical challenges at the national or international level and which have been a stimulus for the enrichment of mathematics learning.

We warmly congratulate Jaromír Šimša on this outstanding achievement!

Database of mathematical journals at MU PDF Print

A list of electronic math magazines available at MU (more than 650 titles) can be found HERE .

However, magazines from the EBSCO and ProQuest megadablets are not included in this list.

But, it is possible to search for mathematical journals directly in these databases, for example:

EBSCO → EBSCOhost Research Databases → select Publications tab in the top bar → select databases (the most comprehensive is Adamic Search Ulitmate) → in the field Browsing Select By Subject & Description and enter a keyword in the field (eg Mathematics)

PROQUEST CENTRAL → select Publications in the upper bar → enter a keyword (eg Mathematics) in the search box and choose where we want to search (eg in subject) to Scholarly Journals
