Walter Gander's talk

CAS topic becomes hot! Odessa polytechnic university invited Prof. Walter Gander to give a talk about using Maple and MatLab.

I understand how hard it is to prepare a talk when you have no clue about your auditory, but finally the lecture was quite poor.

Prof. Gander just showed several problems and their solutions obtained using mentioned software, but honestly it wasn't very exciting.

Another issue was completely non-technical translator. I'm not sure if anybody really needed a translator at all, but that one was a real disaster.

On the other hand, this is second time during the month when politechnic university invites somebody to give a talk (see Sun university day). Good trend!
