36th mathematical hike - 21st of May 2022 PDF Print

Dear Friends of Hikes and Mathematics,

The 36th mathematical hike is planned on the 21st of May.

We meet at 09:34 at the train station in Dolní Loučky. We recommend going by the train that leaves Brno main train station at 8:53.

We have planned a 16 km hike to Tišnov (train station) through Deblín.

All information and photos can be found at (in CZ)

Looking forward to see you soon and have a wonderful spring season,

Jana Bartoňová and Jonatan Kolegar, organizers
Jan Slovák, Director of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics

MUNI Seminar series - Ross Anderson - The sustainability of safety, security and privacy PDF Print

The sustainability of safety, security and privacy


Now that we’re putting software and network connections into durable safety-critical goods such as cars and medical devices, we’ll have to patch vulnerabilities, as we do with phones and laptops. But we can't let vendors stop patching after three years! So in 2019, the EU passed Directive 2019/771, which gives the right to software updates for goods with digital elements, for the time period the consumer might reasonably expect. In my talk I'll describe the background, including a study we did for the European Commission in 2016, and the likely future effects. As sustainable safety, security and privacy become a legal mandate, this will create real tension with existing business models and supply chains. It will also pose a grand challenge for computer scientists. What sort of tools and methodologies should you use to write software for a car that will go on sale in 2023, if you have to support security patches and safety upgrades till 2043?

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Masaryk University  invites applications for fellowships for PhD studies,  at the date depending on mutual agreement.

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 structures of Mathematical Physics
  • Geometric aspects of algebraic topology
  • Nonlinear differential and difference equations
  • Limit periodic and almost periodic systems
  • Oscillation theory for linear differential systems
  • Oscillation and spectral theory for linear difference systems
  • Calculus of variations and optimal control
  • Mathematical modelling
  • Statistics and data analysis

The fellowship for the initial year will range between 22000 - 27000 CZK per month,  with a possibility of extension, conditional on the student's performance. The candidates must hold a Master degree (before starting the PhD studies), or equivalent. They  should submit a letter of application accompanied by a CV including their study history  and a  motivation letter to Martin Kolář ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) .

They should also arrange for at least 2 letters of recommendation to be mailed directly to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

The applications will be assessed continuously. The successful applicants will be notified as soon as possible, but not later than 60 days after the submission.
