The Mathematical Physics PRONEX Group

Led by Professors W. Wreszinski (IFUSP) and M. O'Carroll and R. Schor (UFMG/USP, UFMG) a dozen of mathematical physicists from the University of Sao Paulo and the Federal University of Minas Gerais got a CNPq-Pronex grant that will help to promote scientific collaboration within members from these institutions as well as to bring people from abroad. We have received the visits of Professors Tom Spencer (IAS-Princeton) and Jim Howland (UVA, Charlottesville), Professors D.C. Brydges (UVA, Charlottesville), K. Fredenhagen (Hamburg), K. Gawedzki (IHES-Paris) and A. Kupiainen (Helsinki University and Finland Academy of Sciences). In November 1999, we organized the 2nd Pronex 203 Mathematical Physics Meeting, at the Physics Institute, USP, Sao Paulo. You can have the meeting program here (postcript file).

The LabCalc Project

I have been also involved with a Curriculum Reform in our campus, and I have been coordinating the establishment of a Calculus Laboratory at our Institute, with support from the PACDT/CAPES and from a partnership with a REENGE (CNPq) project leading by the School of Engineering  EESC-USP .
With M.A.S. Ruas, I organized the meeting  "Encontro: A Informática no Ensino da Matemática", November 6-7, 1997, where more than 80 persons (students, teachers and researchers) from across the country came together to exchange ideas on the use of the computer in Mathematics teaching. You can have more information about our project in LABCALC.
