Leonid Ryvkin

Mathematician · Maître de conférences in Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1

I am a mathematician working in the field of higher differential geometry. My research interests include multisymplectic geometry, singular foliations, simplicial and graded manifolds.

I will work as a Maître de conférences (Assistant/ Associate professor) at the Institut Camille Jourdan of the University Claude Bernard Lyon 1.

Teaching materials

Calculus 2

In the summer term 2021 I was assisting in the teaching of Calculus II, I collected some visualisations from the tutorial sessions here.

Puzzles and hunts

Scavenger Hunt

Alfonso Garmendia and I have created a scavenger hunt for the participants of the SFARS seminar, that we organize. It is still available here, the access code to start the hunt is "Request Mission".

A few elementary riddles and excercises

I know some of the following from Benjamin Böhme, who in turn credits Wim Martens. If you know a source I should refer to for some of them, please let me know.
