Arithmetic Primitives for Uniform Distribution Modulo 1

This project is about techniques relevant for the theory of uniform distribution modulo 1 of sequences and its applications in the field of random number generation and quasi‐Monte Carlo methods. It is funded by the FWF Austrian Science Fund and has started in february 2014. (Peter Hellekalek)

Former Projects

EMMA - Experimentieren mit mathematischen Algorithmen

A cooperative project between the Department of Mathematics, University of Salzburg and the HTL Braunau (Clemens Fuchs, Karl-Josef Fuchs, Wolfgang Schmid, Andreas Schröder)

Explicit Problems in Diophantine Analysis and Geometry

The project is funded by the FWF Austrian Science Fund and has started 2012. The place of research was initially at the Institute for Analysis and Computational Number Theory (Math A), TU Graz. The project was shifted to the Department of Mathematics, University of Salzburg in 2013. (Clemens Fuchs)

Diophantine equations, arithmetic progressions and their applications

One of the questions the unit sum number problem tries to answer is which number fields have the property that its ring of integers is generated by its group of units. Moreover, this project also deals with questions concerning arithmetic progressions on algebraic curves. In the course of this, various methods from diophantine analysis and algebraic number theory are used, such as the theory of digit expansions and symbolic computations (Gröbner bases).

    Researchers in the Department of Geoinformatics at the PLUS have been working for several years on national and international research projects on topics sich as humanitarian management, refugee management, natural disasters as well as COVID-19. They have analysed and evaluated billions of geo-referenced social media data. The results serve stakeholders as an important basis for decision making.

    Important dates and information on registering for courses at the Language Centre in Winter Semester 2020/21
    historioPLUS , like so many others, has also had to adapt to the change in circumstances due to Covid-19. For this reason the current year has appeared a little later than in previous years.
    The Language Center has been active in the field of intercomprehension didactics for almost 20 years,Well-known multilingual didactics experts, came together to present the current state of research in this area.The result is the anthology "Lehr- und Lernkompetenzen für die Interkompehension. Perspektiven für die mehrsprachige Bildung (Teaching and Learning Skills for Intercomprehension. Perspectives for Multilingual Education)"Band 10 der Salzburger Reihe zur Lehrer/innen/bildung.
    Registration for the webinars with Ms MMag. Dr. Olivia Vrabl, colleagues from IT-Services and the ZFL-Team is possible at anytime.
    Programme management and discussion moderation: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Sabine Coelsch-Foisner
    During the time of Corona, in particular, it became clear just how important it is to support students digitally in their every day university life. The project „On Track“ – stay on track combines digital and social worlds. It is starting at the right time!
