  • [01] Economy in the spotlight

    The Greek economy will be in the spotlight in the coming days, as a team of experts of the European Commission, European Central Bank (ECB) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) "troika" are due in Athens later in the month for the first full review of the country's economic stability program.

    In an interview with the UK newspaper Guardian, prime minister George Papandreou said that Greece is on a normalised path, while an IMF interim report issued on Friday said that the Greek stability program is broadly on track, with the Greek authorities having made considerable progress in putting the public finances on a sustainable path and having implemented major reforms ahead of schedule.

    [02] Burned areas designated for immediate reforestation

    The areas in northeastern Attica that were destroyed by fire over the weekend have been designated for immediate reforestation, according to an environment ministry announcement.

    A devastating forest fire in the Kalamos-Varnava-Kapandriti triangle that broke out at noon on Saturday and spread quickly, fanned by high winds, was finally contained on Sunday after burning an estimated 8,000 stremma (4000 acres) of pine forest.

    [03] Caratheodory‚s original correspondence on display in museum dedicated to his work

    The correspondence exchanged between world-renowned Greek mathematician Constantin Caratheodory and other two leading 20th century mathematicians, Christos Papakyriakopoulos ("Papa") and Dimitris Kappos, also Greeks, are on display in the Caratheodory Museum in Komotini, northeastern Greece.

    The hand-written letters, dated back to 1937-1943, were acquired in an auction that took place in Athens in June 2010.

    The 10 original manuscripts are in Greek except from one written in German and refer to scientific views on treatises which are also on display in the museum.

    Constantin Caratheodory (1873-1950) made significant contributions to the theory of functions of a real variable, the calculus of variations, and measure theory. His work also includes important results in conformal representations and in the theory of boundary correspondence. In 1909, Caratheodory pioneered the Axiomatic Formulation of Thermodynamics along a purely geometrical approach.

    The contents of letters exchanged between Caratheodory and Einstein suggest that the work of Caratheodory helped shape some of Albert Einstein's theories.
