Seminar on Computer Science and Applied Mathematics
Upravni odbor Matematickog instituta SANU je na nedavnoj sednici doneo odluku da se dosadasnji Seminar za primenjenu matematiku, sada nazove Seminar za racunarstvo i primenjenu matematiku, a u cilju potenciranja znacaja racunarstva kao jedne od oblasti delatnosti Instituta. Istovremeno, Upravni odbor doneo je odluku o osnivanju Odeljenja za racunarstvo i primenjenu matematiku i vezao rad novog odeljenja za rad Seminara za racunarstvo i primenjenu matematiku.

Abstract: First, the modern programming paradigms are discussed. Second, a novel classification of existing approaches to supercomputing is presented. Third, each existing approach is analyzed using the same template: (a) A figure explaining the architecture used and (b) Discussion of major characteristics, pros and cons. Forth, after a brief overview of MultiCore, ManyCore, CoareGrain DataFlow and FineGrainDataFlow programming models, most of the slides are dedicated to programming of dataflow supercomputers in general and the Maxeler dataflow supercomputer in particular. Fifth, the essence of the recent paper (by a subset of coauthors of this tutorial) in Communications of the ACM is presented. Sixth, architectural details and programming examples are given for applications in GeoPhysics and Banking.

PICASSO'S GUERNICA: IN SEARCH OF THE FOURTH DIMENSION
Abstract: In 1937, Pablo Picasso was considered world's foremost living painter. Due to his popularity the Government of the Spanish Republic commissioned Picasso an enormous mural painting of almost 8 meters width to be shown at Paris International world's Fair. Picasso's mind was blank for several months, but when Nazi air raiders destroyed the city of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War, his unchained anger led him to an intense and passionate creative process, which culminated in the most iconic of 20th century masterpieces. From the 45 sketches that served to prepare the painting and the ten pictures his partner Dora Maar took during the creation of the painting we can deduce the process followed by Picasso during the 36 days of fury in which he painted Guernica. As the most important inventor of cubism, Picasso followed a parallel path with mathematicians and physicists of the beginning of 20th century in the search of the fourth dimension. Unknowingly, artists and scientist were working on the same idea: the search of a new and more adequate way of representing space and time.
Keywords: Picasso, Bombing of Guernica, Cubism, Fourth Dimension, Space-Time, Relativity.
NAPOMENA: Ovo predavanje je ustvari webinar: Predavac ce govoriti iz svoje radne sobe u Spaniji, a direktan prenos omogucen je za sve koji se na vreme registruju i uloguju na http://www.webinar.co.rs/. Za one sklone (dobrim) navikama i druzenju, organizovacemo projekciju u sali 301f.
