5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Analysis and Geometry of Metric Spaces - a Bridge between Smooth and Fractal Views
05 Apr 2020 - 10 Apr 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
The notion of fractals was introduced by Mandelbrot as new models of the shapes of objects in nature like the coastline, trees and the surface of rocks, which can not be represented by combinations of smooth objects such as lines, rectangles, circles and spheres. Since there happens natural phenomena such as waves and heat diffusions on those objects modeled by fractals, we need to develop the theory to treat such natural phenomena on fractals, which are included in the category of metric spaces. This direction of study is called analysis and geometry on metric spaces. In this area of research, there have been two groups, one has tried to extend the existing theory for smooth spaces and the other has tried to use the complicated structure of the object itself. These two groups have been working separately for more than 20 years and both have obtained fruitful results. However, recently, evidences of strong connection between those two approaches. So the main purpose of this workshop is to gather people from both sides, to promote interaction and to create a common ground for deeper study in this area.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Almost-Periodic Spectral Problems
12 Apr 2020 - 17 Apr 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Given the progress that has been made recently and the multitude of tools that have been employed, the meeting aims at bringing together people with various backgrounds to present recent results, exchange ideas, learn new methods, and potentially start new collaborations.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Restriction, Kakeya, and Carleson-Type Problems
26 Apr 2020 - 01 May 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Harmonic analysis is a branch of mathematics that studies the properties of operators such as the Fourier transform. Over the past few years, a number of powerful new techniques have been developed that have led to progress on old and difficult problems. The goal is to gather experts and young researchers to share their expertise in these techniques and disseminate them more broadly within the harmonic analysis community.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Mathematical Questions in Wave Turbulence
03 May 2020 - 08 May 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Weak turbulence is a universal phenomenon describing the chaotic behaviors of systems as diverse as the atmosphere, the ocean, plasmas (and thus astrophysics), quantum dynamics, etc... in the regime where linear (as opposed to nonlinear) effects are dominant. Understanding this phenomenon rigorously would be of great interest in all these physical disciplines ; it is also a fascinating mathematical challenge, bringing together many domains of research: partial differential equations, probabilty, mathematical physics, and harmonic analysis.

2 Day Workshop at BIRS — Canadian Abstract Harmonic Analysis Symposium
08 May 2020 - 10 May 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract harmonic analysis has evolved out of classical Fourier analysis; it deals with locally compact groups, their representations, and the Banach algebras associated with them. Abstract harmonic analysis has had a strong presence in Canada's mathematical community for several decades. Since 1997, the Canadian Abstract Harmonic Analysis Symposium has been successful in bringing together researchers, from Canada and abroad, in abstract harmonic analysis and related areas, such as Banach algebras, operator algebras, and operator spaces. This meeting will continue this tradition and provide a forum for researchers in the area for fruitful interaction. This particular meeting will also pay tribute to Anthony To-Ming Lau, a major contributor to the area over decades, who will retire effective June 30, 2020.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Model Theory of Differential Equations, Algebraic Geometry, and their Applications to Modeling
31 May 2020 - 05 Jun 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
The goals of this workshop include bringing together researchers who work with actual modelers and modeling problems and researchers working more on the theoretical side. This will stimulate interactions resulting in the emergence of new and significant improvement in existing applications of differential algebra, applied algebraic geometry, and model theory to modeling.
