In just a year from now — July 6, 2022 — the International Congress of Mathematicians starts in St. Petersburg. This is the greatest event in the world of mathematics. And if you think that math is just complicated theorems and boring formulas, you are wrong. It charges our everyday life — we invite you to discover this.

Greetings from International Congress of Mathematicians!

Carlos Kenig’s speech, President of the International Mathematical Union

Did you know that...

Do you know that you can divide by zero? However, it makes no sense. Imagine that we want to divide the number a by zero. Then for a = 0, any number can be taken as a quotient, and for a ≠ 0, no number fits. In other branches of mathematics, there are conditions under which one can divide by zero, for example, the so called wheel algebraic structure.
