Dear members and friends of the KITION PLANETARIUM & OBSERVATORY,
We would like to inform you about our online summer sessions INCRFEDIBLE LEAST SQUARES specifically prepared for Lyceum students.
It uncovers the kitchen of scientists: how they find accurate relations between measured different physical values!
This course is useful for students, who wish to know more about numerical analysis.
It provides the skills to present own research and estimate the relations between different values with the help of method of least squares.
It is common to have tasks at international competitions on different subjects which use this method.
This course is a challenge to learn something new and incredible this summer.
The course will be delivered by the Astrophysicist Alexander Prokofyev.
Alexander Prokofyev graduated with honor the Department of Physics at Moscow State University (Lomonosov University). His scientific work is connected to “Cosmic Strings in Expanded Theories of Gravitation”. Nowadays he conducts research in archeoastronomy, organizes and participates in observations of total solar eclipses, meteor showers and asteroid occultations. He has publications in scientific and popular editions, and makes reports in both national and International conferences, from Cyprus to the USA. He is known for his pedagogical skills. For example, the students he prepared for the competitions of the International Olympiad in Astronomy and Astrophysics achieved an ‘honorable mention’ level, entering the top half of the talented students on the planet. It is the highest ever award that Cypriot participants have achieved.
On completion of the course a participation certificate will be awarded. Booking in advance is obligatory.
