IUT Professor holds a mathematics course for students of USA

09 August

Professor of Inha University in Tashkent (IUT) Rustam Turdibaev conducted a course in mathematics for a group of students from the United States.

A group of American students took part in the 10-week long mathematical research program “The International Research Experience for Students in Uzbekistan”, hosted by the California State University (USA). The program allows students from the US to gain experience in Uzbekistan, the birthplace of algebra, under the mentorship of local specialists.

In collaboration with their Uzbek peers and mentors, the US students conduct research in the structure theory of Leibniz algebras, Harmonic Analysis and Mathematical Biology.

The program on the direction of algebra was conducted under the supervision of the Director of the Institute of Mathematics named after V. I. Romanovsky, Academician Shavkat Ayupov.

Dr. Rustam Turdibayev, under this program, delivered a mini-course of 15 lectures on introductory Homological Algebra towards Lie and Leibniz Algebra (co)homology, which was held at Inha University in Tashkent.

The course was attended by the third year students majoring in mathematics from the USA - Kyla Pohl (St. Olaf College, Minnesota), Drew Horton (Sonoma State University, California), Min Soo Kim (Vanderbilt University, Tennessee) and some junior research fellows of the Institute of Mathematics, as well as a number of Master students of the National University of Uzbekistan majoring in Algebra. 

Dr. Rustam Turdibaev mentored Min Soo Kim, a 3rd-year Mathematics student of Vanderbilt University in the investigation of some open questions in the theory of Leibniz n-algebras. The goal of the joint investigation is to compare the ideals of Leibniz n-algebras build by a Casas-Loday-Pirashvili’s functor from a Leibniz algebra, with the ideals of the underlying Leibniz algebra and moreover to describe simple and semisimple Leibniz n-algebras in that category. Obtained results are available as a preprint on arXiv.
Previously, in 2017, Dr. Rustam Turdibaev successfully mentored senior students Terris Becker, Juan Escobar Salsedo, Crystal Salas from Sonoma State University in this program. The prepared manuscript of their joint results is expected to be published in a journal “Cogent Mathematics & Statistics “.

Dr. Rustam Turdibaev has been a faculty member of IUT since Fall 2016, teaching mathematics courses for the students of SOCIE.  He was awarded a doctoral degree of the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) in 2015.
