Short description of the event: 

Professor Gunnar Kangro (1913-1975), member of the Estonian Academy of Sciences, was the most famous Estonian mathematician of his time. He was a world-class professional in his main research area - summability theory. His excellent courses and textbooks in algebra and analysis advocated the use of new theories developed in the first half of the twentieth century, and led the transition of Estonian mathematics to modern basis. Having also supervised 23 Cand. Sci. Theses, he is fully considered the founder of contemporary Estonian mathematical school.

Modern methods of analysis and algebra. The working program of the conference consists of plenary lectures in the mornings and parallel sessions in afternoons.

Peer-reviewed contributions will be published in a special issue of the open access journal "Acta et Commentationes Universitatis Tartuensis de Mathematica"; http://math.ut.ee/acta.
