In January 2003, the project
*Geometry and Topology of Manifolds
and Integrable Dynamical Systems* in cooperation with the seminar *Mathematical Method of Mechanics* and *GTA seminar* organised the mini-couse ** Some aspects of classical homology theory**.

The course was intended for students of final years, graduate students and researchers.

The lecturer was Jelena Grbic from University of Aberdeen, Scotland.

From October to December 2003,
Seminar organised the mini-course ** Lie groups and algebras**.
The lecturer was dr Bozidar Jovanovic.

During the schoolyear 2008/2009, the course * Algebraic curves and integrable dynamical systems* was held in the framework of the Seminar.

In March 2009, Seminar *Mathematical Mathods of Mechanics*, together with Colloquia for Mathematics and Mechanics, and CGTA Seminar, organised the mini-course * Toric Topology*. The lecturer was

Durig the schoolyear 2009/2010, within Seminar *Mathematical Methods of Mechanics*,
a two-semester course * Toric Topology* was held. The course is organised in collaboration with CGTA Seminar.

During the spring semester of 2011, Seminar Mathematical Methods of Mechanics, with support of CGTA seminar, organised course * Mechanics and Geometry*. This introductory course is aimed to a broad audience, including talented undergraduate and and high-school students. Its purpose is to strenghten and popularize the link between mathematics and theoretical mechanics, which has traditionaly and historicaly represented the driving force for both scientific disciplines.

Lectures were held on Wednesdays, from noon to 2 p.m.
