BCAM participates in the series of lectures on Mathematics in everyday life

  • The conferences are organised jointly with the Bilbao City Council, UPV/EHU, RSME and Radio Euskadi.

Basque Center for Applied Mathematics – BCAM together with Real Sociedad Matemática Española (RSME), the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and Radio Euskadi, is organising the series of lectures Mathematics in everyday life (Matematicas en la vida cotidiana) which will take place at the Bidebarrieta Library during April and May.

The first conference will take place on 15 April and will be given by Pedro Caro, Ikerbasque associate researcher at BCAM, under the title Visibilidad e invisibilidad: dos caras de la misma moneda, where he will discuss visibility and invisibility from a mathematical point of view with recent theoretical results.

The next one, 22 April, will be given by Dolores Gómez, lecturer in the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Santiago de Compostela. She will talk about ¿Sabías que … las matemáticas permiten dar solución a problemas del mundo real?, describing some real problems related to industrial and environmental problems that can be solved by means of mathematical modelling.

The third of the conferences, Y todo empezó midiendo, will take place on 29 April, with Marina Logares, lecturer in the Department of Algebra, Geometry and Topology at the Complutense University of Madrid, as speaker. In this case, different examples will be discussed in which geometry has been the solution, and even the cause of a problem.

Finally, on 6 May, Irantzu Barrio, Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the UPV/EHU, will give the last lecture Estadistika mundua ulertzeko bidelagun (Statistics, the companion for understanding the world) in Basque. This talk will explain statistical analysis data that help us to understand the world around us by means of graphs, models and tables.

The lectures will take place next Thursday at 19:00 at the Bidebarrieta Library and online at
