To show interesting facts and the not so obvious use of mathematics in fields where it is often surprising is one of the objectives of the seminar Mathematics for Life. It is organized by the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague together with the Faculty of Education of Charles University. The course included in the further education of pedagogical staff (DVPP) had a successful premiere at the faculty last year, so the next year will begin on Friday, 17 January 2020 from at 9:00.

In the second year, teachers and other interested parties can look forward to well-known names such as Zdeněk Strakoš from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University, Jan Flusser from the Institute of Information Theory and Automation of the ASCR or forensic geneticist Halina Šimková of the Seznam TV series, Expertiza. There will be lectures on the use of linear algebra in signal processing, on applied mathematics in pedagogical practice, on the role of mathematics in music or in forensic sciences and on other interesting applications of mathematics.
