==================================================================
Join us in Italy, Summer 2019:
1) July 311,
Pescara, Italy:
I am coorganizing the 6th
Ph.D. Summer
SchoolConference on ``Mathematical Modeling of
Complex Systems".
Please, see here
for more information on the school
and how to apply.
2) July 12,
Pescara, Italy: In collaboration with the summer school and in
preparation for it, some colleagues
from Pescara and I will give a tutorial
on information flow in directed graphs
with some applications.
See here
for information.
===========================================================
I was awarded the (full year)
2019/20 FulbrightCzech
Distinguished Professorship at the Czech Technical
University in Prague.
The Fulbright Scholar Program is "a
program of the United States Department of State
Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs."
"The Fulbright Distinguished Chair Awards comprise
approximately forty distinguished lecturing,
distinguished research and distinguished lecturing/research
awards ranging from three to 12 months.
Fulbright Distinguished Chair Awards are viewed as among the
most prestigious appointments in the
Fulbright Scholar Program. Candidates should be eminent
scholars and have a significant
publication and teaching record."
Teaching Winter 2019:
=============================================
IMPORTANT
1: All answers on home works and exams must be
justified, even if that is not evident from
the phrasing of the question. Answers without
justification will receive partial credit at best.
IMPORTANT 2: Before
turning in exams or HW's, write your first plus last name in the
top right corner
of each sheet you turn in (even if you
staple them together)!

General Announcement
for Students:
====================================================
In most of my classes you will be either strongly encouraged,
or even obliged to turn in your HW in *.pdf format based on LATEX.
Here is a website where LATEX is explained:
