Algebraic 2014 Contest

    Sometimes our editors have fun and make thrash videos from very serious lectures. We are laying out one of them for the first time.

    And here is how Roman Mikhailov himself describes his course :

    “It is planned to analyze and discuss some open problems of group theory and the small-dimensional theory of homotopy: Whitehead asphericity problems, Wall D (2) hypotheses, relations hole problems, problems of zero divisors in group rings. Rather, this is not a course, but a conversation about group theory and homotopy theory, with a description of various examples, tricks and methods. ”

    Well, then the idea came up to make a competition for such videos.

    In general, the conditions are as follows:

    Competition "Algebraic 2014"

    Participants are invited to send a video clip lasting up to 3 minutes, depicting the process of teaching in the field of natural sciences (mathematics, physics, copmuter science, etc.). The main task is to introduce the viewer to a serious topic.
