Krein's Formula and SturmLiouville Operators on a Compact Interval
Abstract: Recalling parametrizations of selfadjoint extensions associated with a regular, symmetric, secondorder differential expressions, we give a comprehensive accounting of all selfadjoint extensions of the minimal SturmLiouville operator in terms of Krein's formula for resolvent differences given SturmLiouville operators with Dirichlet boundary conditions at a and b as a convenient reference operator, and give a detailed description of the Krein extension of the minimal SturmLiouville operator.

Cofibrant generation and stable independence
Abstract: We discuss recent joint work with Rosicky and Vasey concerning connections between stable independence notions and cofibrant generation of weak factorization systems in locally finitely presentable categories. In particular, we show that for a sufficiently nice class of morphisms M in an lfp category K, M is cofibrantly generated just in case the wide subcategory of K with morphisms precisely those in M has a stable independence relation. This result, and its consequences, cover a wide variety of examples and, in particular, provide an ideal context in which to analyze the stability of Extorthogonality classes of models of the sort considered in Baldwin/Eklof/Trlifaj.

23rd mathematical hike  May 25th 2019 


Dear Friends of Hikes and Mathematics,
You are cordially invited to the 23rd mathematical hike. It will take place on May 25th.
Start at 08:41 at the bus station Židlochovice (you can join us in Brno, bus from Zvonařka, at 08:07). We plan a short hike, about 13.8 km. We will go to the lookout tower "Akátová věž", then through the forest to Žabčice. There's a train or bus back to Brno.
Looking forward to seeing you there, Jonatan Kolegar a Jana Bartoňová, organizers, Jan Slovák, Director of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics

Department Assembly  May 22, 4pm, lecture room M1 


The next Assembly of the department will take place on May 22, at 4pm at the lecture room M1. In accordance with our sublaws, the Assembly will be chaired by David Kruml, one of our representatives in the Senate.
I am suggesting the following programme: 1. Brief information on the numbers of students applying for Bc. and Mgr. programmes (Jan Paseka) 2. Brief information on the result of the accreditation of our doctoral programme and further proceedings (Martin Kolář)
3. Report on the development of the department in the in the past four years and the future plans (Jan Slovák) 4. Other issues I am looking forward to meeting at the Assembly,
Jan Slovák
