The International Conference «The Modern Paradigm of Scientific Knowledge: Relevance and Prospects»
April 4, 2018, young researchers and graduate students from China, Russia, Syria, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Haiti, Denmark, Ghana, Egypt, Yemen, India, Jordan, Iran, Cameroon, China, Côte d'Ivoire, Cuba, Lebanon, Madagascar and other countries of the world met at RUDN at the VI annual International Scientific and Practical Conference «The Modern Paradigm of Scientific Knowledge: Relevance and Prospects», an event conducted by the Department of Foreign Languages of RUDN Agrarian and Technological Institute, where graduate students, young researchers from all over the world, senior students of various specialties and directions of RUDN Agrarian and Technological and Medical Institutes presented reports on the scientific topic of their dissertations, demonstrating an interdisciplinary approach to research in line with the modern paradigm of scientific knowledge. The working languages of the conference were English, Spanish, Chinese, German and French.
Based on the results of the event, a collection of articles is prepared for publication in the publishing house «Languages of the Peoples of the World» with the assignment of ISBN index. The conference collection is also indexed in the database of the RSCI.
October 6, the Nobel Committee announced the 2021 Nobel Prize Winners in Chemistry. They were scientists Benjamin List (Germany) and David Macmillan (USA) for new methods of molecular synthesis. RUDN chemists know Professor Liszt personally — in 2019, the researcher came to participate in the university conference.
The Nobel Committee in Stockholm has named the laureates in Medicine — David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian. They discovered how temperature or touch, for example, is transformed into human sensations.
Allowing for quantum corrections, the Einstein-Lovelock theory describes black holes with an equation that contains an infinite number of terms. However, according to a RUDN University physicist, the geometry of a black hole in this theory can be presented in a compact form, and a limited number of terms can suffice to describe the observed values. This could help scientists study black holes in theories with quantum corrections to Einstein’s equations.
