Workshop on Distance Geometry, Semidefinite Programming and Applications
10 May 2021 - 14 May 2021 • The Fields Institute –Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
Distance geometry is a research area bridging mathematics and computer science with applicability to practical problems in a wide range of disciplines. In the majority of the applications, we are given an incomplete list of distances between pairs of objects, and we seek positions in Euclidean space realizing those distances. Classical applications include topics as protein conformation determination and sensor network localization, while emerging applications range from the study of molecular nanostructure to the adaptation of human movements in simulated environments. Distance geometry is also used in important data science applications such as compressed sensing, low rank matrix completion, and visualization of high-dimensional data.

Systematic Effects and Nuisance Parameters in Particle Physics Data Analyses
27 Jun 2021 - 02 Jul 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Particle Physicists study matter at is smallest scale and try to reveal how the physical world is constructed from elementary particles and the forces acting between them. The well-known proton, neutron and similar particles are composed of quarks. Atoms also contain electrons; together with the two heavier versions of the electron (the muon and tau), each with its associated neutrino, they make up the group of leptons. Another ingredient of the catalogue of particles is the Higgs boson, discovered at the CERN Lab's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012.
