About the project

The scienсe & education media project ‘Mathematical strolls’  means walks and conversations with scientists in the ‘mathematical’ sites in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod and other cities of the country. During the conversations the main character tells about life, mathematics, science in general, scientists, music, poetry…

The project is aimed at the promotion of scientific knowledge, interdisciplinary projects which are based on mathematics; promotion of the achievements of Russian scientists; involvement of young people in scientific activities; creation of the ‘mathematical map’ of Russia via the the stories told by project characters about iconic places related to outstanding mathematicians of Russia, the history of shaping of the physic-mathematical community of the country.

Don’t you still believe that mathematics can be exciting? Let’s take a stroll!

‘Mathematical strolls’ is a joint project of the Kharkevich Institute for Information Transmission problems of RAS and Skoltech. The project is supported by ‘Kommersant’ Publishing House and ‘Ogonyok’ magazine, ‘Troitsky variant – Nauka’ newspaper, ‘Kot Shroedingera’ magazine, and ‘PostNauka’ web-portal.
