The Department of Mathematics at the University of Turin, in the framework of its research project “Towards an efficient communication of innovative mathematical results”, organises a series of events called ‘Lagrange Lectures’.
The scientific work of Joseph Louis Lagrange has always represented an important source of inspiration to the mathematical community, with particular regard to the success and generality of the analytical tools created by Lagrange himself for the study of complex dynamical systems, the theoretical analysis of their behaviour and the optimal definition of algorithms and concrete computational procedures.
The Lagrange Lectures are held at the Department of Mathematics. Their scope is to explore cutting-edge progress in the field of Complexity in relation to other areas, and are targeted at a broad, but mathematically/scientifically literate, audience. The invited speakers are mathematicians of renowned international fame, who should also be effective in popularising the subject. Each seminar is published in an issue of the “Rendiconti del Seminario Matematico”.
