The award was presented at a ceremony on 19 June, 2015 at the University of Pannonia, Veszprém, Hungary and recognizes “outstanding contributions and development in the field of mathematical sciences”.

Welcome to the University of Calgary's Centre for Computational & Discrete Geometry (CCDG), an academic research centre housed within the Department of Mathematics & Statistics and supported by the Canada Research Chairs Program, Canada Foundation for Innovation, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, Faculty of Science and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. 

This year has been of special importance to the international discrete, computational and convex geometry communities. It is the centennial birth anniversary year of László Fejes Tóth – the founder of the Hungarian school of discrete geometry – and also marks the 60th birthday of one of the champions of this school, Professor Károly Bezdek. It, therefore, comes as no surprise that several international events were held this year to celebrate Professor Bezdek’s 60th birthday. 

CCDG doctoral student elected to the Canadian Mathematical Society Student Committee (CMS Studc), organizes the summer 2015 AARMS-CMS Poster Session.  

Can discrete geometry be used for technological innovation? Can solutions to fundamental problems in solid state chemistry be found using pure mathematics? 

What's hot at CCDG!
