CO«i»b.H BaCHJIbeBHa lU>BaJIeBcR8JI (Sonja Kovalevsky) used to be born in Moscow in 1850 and died in Stockholm in 1891. among those years, within the then altering and turbulent conditions for Europe, lies the all too short lifetime of this impressive girl. This lifestyles used to be lived out in the nice eu facilities of strength and studying in Russia, France, Germany, Switzerland, England and Sweden. To this present day, now a hundred and fifty years after her start, her effect for and contribution to mathe­ matics, technological know-how, literature, women's rights and democratic executive are recorded and reviewed, not just in Europe yet now in international locations some distance got rid of in time and distance from the lands of her delivery and being. This quantity, devoted to her reminiscence and to her achievements, files the lawsuits of the Marcus Wallenberg Symposium held, in reminiscence of Sonja Kovalevsky, at Stockholm college from 18 to 22 June 2000.

Trends in Neural Computation

These days neural computation has turn into an interdisciplinary box in its personal correct; researches were carried out starting from diversified disciplines, e. g. computational neuroscience and cognitive technological know-how, arithmetic, physics, laptop technology, and different engineering disciplines. From assorted views, neural computation presents an alternate technique to appreciate mind capabilities and cognitive strategy and to resolve not easy real-world difficulties successfully.

When I first came to her house at John Wood's Road, I was confused and embarrassed - her appearance was so different from my own imagination of her. She was very thin and had a nose which was enormous for a female face - dressed in a black skirt in thin transparent cotton emphasizing her skinny neck.

But already her first spoken word brought me back to my previous dreams of her - I have never listened to words so rich and full of sympathy.

When Sonja came to Stockholm she established her position in respect of Abelian functions; during five consecutive terms in Stockholm she lectured on these functions. Arrival in Stockholm. In June 1883 Gosta succeeded in persuading the Board of Stockholm University to allow Sonja to give lectures in the Spring term 1884 but without salary. Sonja came to Stockholm in November 1883.

Zeilon became professor at Lund University in 1926 where his colleague was Marcel Riesz. The Bordin Prize. Sonja's third paper was a brilliant achievement; she found a solution to a problem which had stayed open for almost a century. One refers nowadays to the Kovalevsky gyroscope. Her case has been analysed numerically and there exist nowadays films which show how a rigid body rotates in her case. The starting point of her article is a rigid body K which can rotate around a fixed point and where gravity is the sole external force.
