Example text

Es gab Gerüchte, dass die Geheimpolizei (KGB) die jüdischen Studenten an ein oder zwei Orten unter genauerer Beobachtung haben wollte. Es könnte aber auch ein positiverer Grund dahinterstecken: Die Institutsverwaltung hatte erkannt, dass hier ein ausgezeichneter Fachbereich heranwuchs, und sie tat, was sie konnte, um diesen Trend zu fördern. Ich glaube, dieser letzte Satz trifft die Wahrheit besser. Der Rektor des Instituts für Öl und Gas, Wladimir Nikolajewitsch Winogradow, war sehr geschickt und bekannt dafür, Professoren mit innovativen Lehr- und Forschungsmethoden ans Institut zu holen und dort auch neuartige Unterrichtsmethoden umzusetzen.

Nach der offiziellen Staatspolitik hatten alle Nationalitäten gleiche Rechte, und jede dem widersprechende offizielle Äußerung konnte Ärger bringen. Und doch sprach diese Frau darüber in aller Ruhe mit mir, einem Fremden, den sie gerade getroffen hatte, und schien überhaupt nicht besorgt, dass jemand von ihren Kollegen etwas davon mitbekommen könnte. Abgesehen davon fanden die Aufnahmeprüfungen an der MGU immer einen Monat früher als an den anderen Universitäten statt. Falls man also bei der MGU durchfiel, hatte man immer noch die Möglichkeit, sich anderswo zu bewerben.

5 Die Identität und das Inverse der Gruppe der Drehungen. © Frenkel Zunächst führt die Hintereinanderausführung zweier Drehungen um φ1 und φ2 Grad zu einer Drehung um φ1 + φ2 Grad. Sollte φ1 + φ2 größer als 360° sein, subtrahieren wir einfach 360° von der Summe. In der Mathematik spricht man in diesem Fall von einer Addition modulo 360. Sind beispielsweise φ1 = 195° und φ2 = 250°, dann ist die Summe der beiden Winkel gleich 445°, und eine Drehung um 445° ist dasselbe wie eine Drehung um 85°. Für die Gruppe der Drehungen eines runden Tisches gilt somit: 195o + 250o = 85o Zweitens gibt es einen besonderen Punkt auf dem Kreis, der einer Drehung um 0° entspricht.
