Crescimento (In)Sunstentável-Palestra (in Portuguese).

Na passada 6ª feira, 15 Março 2013, dei uma palestra pública na Escola Secundária Dª Inês de Castro, Alcobaça, enquadrada nas actividades do Agrupamento de Escolas de Cister-Agrup@2013. Tendo como mote o ano de 2013 como o Ano da Matemática do Planeta Terra, escolhi como tema para a minha palestra, o problema do Crescimento [Económico] (In)Sustentável, como forma de desmistificar um dos assuntos que tem sido muito falado na comunicação social. O grande erro dos economistas, em geral, passa por assumir que as economias podem crescer eternamente a ritmos rápidos e exponenciais, o que não é verdade, pois os recursos disponíveis … Continue reading Crescimento (In)Sunstentável-Palestra (in Portuguese).

Mathematicians aim to take publishers out of publishing

Mathematicians plan to launch a series of free open-access journals that will host their peer-reviewed articles on the preprint server arXiv. The project was publicly revealed yesterday in a blog post by Tim Gowers, a Fields Medal winner and mathematician at the University of Cambridge, UK. The initiative, called the Episciences Project, hopes to show that researchers can organize the peer review and publication of their work at minimal cost, without involving commercial publishers. “It’s a global vision of how the research community should work: we want to offer an alternative to traditional mathematics journals,” says Jean-Pierre Demailly, a mathematician … Continue reading Mathematicians aim to take publishers out of publishing
