The values of science have direct benefits for human beings: they allow us to be critical and at the same time skeptical, that is, to seek the truth and not to believe everything that is said; to work in teams and to have the possibility of exchanging ideas and developing the ability to solve problems, both mathematical and of daily life.

Heinz Hopf (November 19, 1894 – June 3, 1971) was a German mathematician whose work was in algebraic topology.  He studied vector fields and extended the fixed point formula of Lefschetz.  He also studied homotopy classes and defined what is known today as the ‘Hopf invariant’.

In the Mexican field, he was President of the Mexican Mathematical Society (1989-1990), President of the Mexican Academy of Sciences (2004-2006), Director of the Institute of Mathematics at UNAM (1998-2006), Deputy Director of Science at the National Council of Science and Technology (2007-2011) and General Director of the Center for Research in Mathematics in Guanajuato (since March 2011). At the international level he was President of UMALCA (2001-2009) and is President of the Commission for Developing Countries of the IMU (since 2011).

His areas of expertise are the theory of representations of algebras, homological algebra and spectral graph theory. He has also published papers on linear algebra, mathematics related to chemistry, statistics and combinatorics. His first representative work proposed a Gabriel conjecture on finite representation algebras. This result was central to the representation classification achieved later. He developed algorithms that test whether an integral quadratic form is strongly nonnegative. All these fields are at the forefront of world research in algebra, an area in which he is considered an expert.

He has received the «Gabino Barreda» medal and diploma from UNAM in undergraduate, master’s and doctoral degrees. He obtained the National University Distinction for Young Academics in the area of Research in Exact Sciences; Scientific Research Award in Exact Sciences from the Mexican Academy of Sciences; Third World Academy Award (TWAS Award) in research in Mathematics; elected member of Sigma-Xi The Scientific Research Society and of the Third World Academy of Sciences. He received the Premio Nacional de Ciencias y Artes.

Dado que los diferentes modelos de gobernanza ofrecen distintas oportunidades para que la población local participe en la gestión de las áreas protegidas, su conocimiento de estos modelos de gobernanza y su motivación para colaborar variarán. Este trabajo analiza el conocimiento y la participación en (1) las reservas de biosfera impuestas por el gobierno y (2) las áreas de conservación comunitaria, en las que se desarrollan proyectos de ecoturismo. Se recogieron datos cualitativos y cuantitativos (n = 205) en dos comunidades indígenas de la Península de Yucatán, México. Aunque el conocimiento local de las iniciativas de conservación impulsadas por la comunidad no siempre es mayor que el de las Reservas de la Biosfera impuestas por el gobierno, la participación local siempre es mayor. El conocimiento y la participación en las iniciativas de conservación dependen del enfoque de gestión, del alcance de la r…Save to LibraryEditPaperRank:    Lectores Artículos relacionados MencionesVer Impacto
