The lecture at the Technical University Dresden, one of the oldest universities in Germany, will be attended by protectors of the universities in Saxony, Deans of the Mathematic Departments, representatives of other universities, students.

Dr Kuhme, Head of the University Department of the State Ministry of Saxony for Science and Culture, will be with Anand on his arrival.
