Geometry, Topology and their Applications in Control System Design
21 Feb 2021 - 26 Feb 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
This workshop will have a special focus on control theory and control systems. Control theory deals with the problem of shaping the behavior of ``systems,'' where a system can be an engineered object, such as a robot or a train, or a natural one, such as a flock of birds or even the brain. The basic driving questions are how to actuate, and how to design, the system to get it to perform as desired. Due to the wide variety of physical systems that control theory handles, the use of more abstract mathematical tools is very well suited to this field, and has already proven useful many instances, such as the study of system stability or optimal design of control system.

Mini-symposium on Materials and Periodicity
01 Mar 2021 - 03 Mar 2021 • The Fields Institute –Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
This mini-symposium will link mathematicians studying the rigidity of periodic structures with soft matter physicists analysing the microstructures of materials through advanced imaging techniques. Recent developments in modern geometric and topological techniques are beginning to illuminate important features of material structures, and the analysis and prediction of their macroscopic properties are creating new theoretical questions for motions of periodic structures.

Mini-symposium on Sensor Network Localization and Dynamical Distance Geometry
17 May 2021 - 19 May 2021 • The Fields Institute –Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
The focus of this mini-symposium is particularly on DG applications. In fact, a more recent trend is nowadays emerging in the scientific literature, where a much larger number of applications, for which a DG formulation can be supplied, has been brought to the light, so that theoretical results, algorithms, methods and even software tools, initially developed for one specific application, can be adapted, or simply reused, for other applications. Sensors capable to give information about distances are frequently used in these applications, even if their nature often differs from the notion of "sensor" historically used in works on sensor network localization, while the temporal (or dynamical) factor is taking more and more importance. Our list of invited speakers reflects this heterogeneity of applications, with a mathematical background that remains essentially coherent.

Modeling Fluid-Driven Fracture — at the Crossroads of Applied Mathematics, Earth Science, and Earth Resources Engineering
06 Jun 2021 - 11 Jun 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Fluid-driven crack propagation is the process by which pressurized fluid drives cracks through solid materials. Such a process is not only central to hydraulic fracture stimulation of oil and gas wells, but also it describes movement of molten rock through the Earth’s crust and water through the subsurface of glacial ice sheets. Hence, there is significant, and hitherto relatively untapped, potential for multidisciplinary investigation. Furthermore, the underlying mathematical problem is challenging even for simple propagation geometries and ignoring variability in material properties of the rock and/or ice sheet. When realistic variability and complexity is considered, the problem exceeds the capabilities of current computer simulation tools. To address these concerns, the objective of this workshop is to convene a BIRS Workshop of Applied Mathematicians, Geo-Scientists, and Engineers from Academia and Industry to accelerate the development of the state-of-the-art tools to analyze the evolution of fluid-driven cracks that propagate in complex solid media.

Novel Mathematical Methods in Material Science: Applications to Biomaterials
13 Jun 2021 - 18 Jun 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
We will aim to create new mathematical models of complex fluids that can bridge length and time scales, and study novel ways to model entanglement of polymers and filaments. We stress that the novelty of this workshop consists not only in bringing together an interdisciplinary array of scientists, but bridging the gap between what has been traditionally catalogued as pure and applied mathematics.

Entropic Regularization of Optimal Transport and Applications
20 Jun 2021 - 25 Jun 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
The mathematics of optimal transport (OT) has grown to become a unifying theme in many scientific disciplines, from solving purely mathematical problems of analysis, geometry, and partial differential equations to developing revolutionary new methods in economics, statistics, machine learning and artificial intelligence. In the last decade, the impact of optimal transport in the study of geometry was highlighted by two Fields medals (Villani 2010, Figalli 2018). On the other hand, OT has established itself as a viable alternative to classical maximum likelihood based methods in statistics and data science. Other notable applications include generative adversarial network (GAN) in machine learning (Wasserstein GAN), new applications to stem cell biology, and economic applications such as generalizations of the Nobel prize winning Gale-Shapley algorithm, online auctions, and option pricing.

Workshop on New Mathematical Theory to Understand the Effects of Evolution on Range Expansion
02 Nov 2021 - 05 Nov 2021 • The Fields Institute –Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
Many biological species exhibit range shifts: some spread after being introduced into new environments, others follow their preferred climatic conditions under global change. Recent theoretical and empirical results highlight the importance of evolutionary change in these ecological processes. Specifically, they show that evolution can be the driving mechanism behind the range expansion of plants and animals, and that scientists may be underestimating how quickly species can move. However, the ecological and evolutionary processes involved in range expansions have mostly been studied separately, and despite recent advances in theory and experiments, making predictions about the speed of expansion is inherently difficult. The goal of this workshop is to convene mathematicians, modellers, and empiricists to exchange recent results on eco-evolutionary dynamics in species' range expansions and to develop novel mathematical frameworks to address important questions such as the relative contributions of ecological processes, evolutionary processes and environmental conditions on the speed and the variation in speed of range expansion.

Workshop on Differential Privacy and Statistical Data Analysis
13 Jun 2022 - 17 Jun 2022 • The Fields Institute –Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
How can we obtain scientic benefits from statistical analysis of sensitive data, without compromising the privacy of the individuals who contribute their data? The past decade has seen rapid progress on this question due to the emergence of a mathematically rigorous privacy framework known as differential privacy. Informally, differential privacy provides a robust individual privacy guarantee, ensuring that no adversary, regardless of their capabilities, can learn much more about an individual user than they could have learned had that user's data never been collected.
