The Institute of Mathematics at Eötvös Loránd University is pleased to announce its regular one week long summer school in mathematics titled Optimal transport: discrete and continuous.

The summer school will offer a first hand introduction into this exciting field. Lecture series will be supplemented by problems offered to students interested in the subject.

The minicourses will be aimed at advanced undergraduate / starting graduate students but interested PhD students are also welcome. We expect that participants would have a solid background in basic undergraduate mathematics but we do not assume preliminary acquaintance with the special topics of the school.

The lecturers are professors at Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) in Budapest, of Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics in Budapest, of Corvinus University in Budapest and of Hausdorff Center in Bonn (Germany). The lectures will take place at the Lágymányos Campus of Eötvös Loránd University (1117 Budapest, Pázmány Péter sétány 1/c, Hungary).
