## Syllabus

The Seminar will assemble the following two complementary parts:

- Reading and discussion of books on mathematics intended for the readers of an appropriate profile.
- Preparation and presentation of final projects by the participating students.

In the course of the Seminar, the students will get acquainted with a number of books on mathematics presenting the assets of permanent value in the field (the main list is presented in the Reading list. More items will be presented during the Seminar).

The presentations and discussion of final project being prepared during the academic year, will occur in several iterations, so that each student has a number of opportunities to present the ongoing work and to receive the lecturer's and peers' feedback.

## Learning Outcomes

1. Final project in mathematics performed under the instruction of a staff member of Mathematics / Computer Science Departments.

2. A didactic and educational study unit based upon the mathematical contents of the project.
