06 Jan 2020 - 10 Jan 2020 • CIRM – Luminy, France
Organizer:
Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM)
Abstract:
Representation theory is the study of the basic symmetries of mathematics and physics. Recently, it has known some spectacular developments, thanks to the introduction of new technics such as categorical representations or parity sheaves. The continued development of the subject has motivated a trimester in representation theory at the IHP that will take place in 2020 from January to March. This program will begin with an introductory conference. It will consist of 6 mini-courses on the main topics (categorifications and quantum groups, quiver varieties, character varieties, geometric representation theory). It is devoted to younger researchers, but also to senior ones in order to promote the discussions between young mathematicians and seniors.

Long Program — High Dimensional Hamilton-Jacobi PDEs
09 Mar 2020 - 12 Jun 2020 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), UCLA
Abstract:
Applications that involve HJ PDEs in a high-dimensional (and possibly infinite-dimensional) setting lead to challenging computational problems. Although a large literature is available on HJ PDEs, many challenges remain both from a mathematical and computational point of view. The program will open with one week of tutorials, presented by some of the main organizers. These tutorials will provide an introduction to the major themes of the entire program and connect the themes of the four workshops. The goal is to introduce a common language and build a foundation for the participants of this program who have diverse scientific backgrounds. During the weeks between workshops, participants in residence will develop collaborations; we expect fruitful discussions especially between domain scientists, algorithm developers and pure and applied mathematicians.

EMBO Practical Course: FISHing for RNAs: Classical to Single Molecule Approaches
15 Mar 2020 - 20 Mar 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Over the past decades it became evident that a RNA transcripts specific amount and localisation are important in order to understand the biological function of its (non-) coding gene. Whereby state-of-the-art in situ hybridisation (ISH) technologies are key to visualise these RNAs in a given tissue or cell. This course aims to highlight three powerful RNA visualisation techniques in histological tissue samples. During this course the participants will learn to validate the cellular localisation of candidate genes from transcriptome studies through conventional ISH and, the more recent cutting-edge, smFISH (Single Molecule Fluorescent ISH) and HCR-ISH (Hybridization Chain Reaction), based RNA ISH hybridisation methods. Additionally, the course will also cover essential tissue embedding protocols that are adapted for use in visually interrogating RNA transcripts in mammalian tissues.

Statistics for Indirectly Measured Functional Data
30 Mar 2020 - 03 Apr 2020 • Lausanne, Switzerland
Organizer:
Bernoulli Center (CIB)
Abstract:
Functional data such as space curves, images, and surfaces are seldom sensed directly; curves are often noisily and discretely sampled, images are subject to blurring and deformation, and surfaces are often obtained via indirect linear measurements. Understanding the generation of the observations then requires modelling the act of acquisition, and solving an inverse problem in order to arrive at statistical inferences. This leads to a host of new research questions, from identifiability to trade-offs between statistical optimality and computational feasibility, which also make contact with signal processing and numerical analysis.

Functional Data over Multidimensional Domains
27 Apr 2020 - 01 May 2020 • Lausanne, Switzerland
Organizer:
Bernoulli Center (CIB)
Abstract:
Spatio-temporal modelling central to many modern applications, but the dimensionality of the domain of such data poses both conceptual and computational statistical challenges. These are exacerbated in a nonparametric setting, where questions related to asymptotic framework and invariance assumptions arise. The areas of functional data analysis and random field analysis have been attacking these problems separately, but are now increasingly coming into contact, especially when replication may be feasible. The workshop will bring together experts from both areas to explore recent trends and novel challenges.

High Dimensional Hamilton-Jacobi PDEs — Workshop IV: Stochastic Analysis Related to Hamilton-Jacobi PDEs
18 May 2020 - 22 May 2020 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), UCLA
Abstract:
In spite of its flexibility, computing nonlinear problems in random media is very expensive. Hence, in practice, it is needed to consider environments which are small random perturbations of periodic ones, and then to obtain some asymptotic expansion for the ergodic constants. Concrete examples of such phenomena that relate to Hamilton-Jacobi equations are large deviations, front propagation and random walks in random media. The latter strengthens the connection with probability.

Statistics for Topological and Discrete Data
25 May 2020 - 29 May 2020 • Lausanne, Switzerland
Organizer:
Bernoulli Center (CIB)
Abstract:
Topological and discrete data such as trees and networks constitute strongly non-Euclidean structures, often beyond the reach of traditional statistical tools. Their analysis is often challenged by computational tractability, as natural constraints such as permutation invariance are computationally hard to implement. Still, such data can be often transposed into more familiar contexts, whether by transformation, asymptotic arguments, or replicated observations. This workshop will explore both modelling and processing of discrete structures, also drawing in areas such as signal processing on graphs and nonparametrics.

Khansar School on Graph Algebras, Current Trends and Perspectives
08 Jun 2020 - 19 Jun 2020 • Khansar, Iran
Abstract:
The main theme of the proposed school are graph algebras, which are objects of growing interest that lie at the boundary between algebra and analysis among other mathematical fields. Despite being introduced only about a decade ago, Leavitt path algebras, as algebraic counterpart of graph C*-algebras, have arisen in a variety of different contexts as diverse as symbolic dynamics, noncommutative geometry, representation theory, and number theory. In particular, Leavitt path algebras can be seen as an algebraic avenue paving the road to understanding its more complex operator theory sibling, graph C*-algebras. Because of the central role these analytic objects play in both the genesis and the ongoing development of Leavitt path algebras, no history of the subject would be complete without a discussion on this topic and its close connexion to Leavitt path algebras.

Geometrical Statistics and Functional Data
22 Jun 2020 - 26 Jun 2020 • Lausanne, Switzerland
Organizer:
Bernoulli Center (CIB)
Abstract:
Important classes of functional data, such as random measures and random operators, are intrinsically constrained and need to be represented as elements of suitable non-Euclidean spaces, such as Hilbert manifolds. The interplay between the infinite dimensionality of their variation and the non-linearity of their representation space poses novel challenges for statistics, at the interface of several domains, such as shape analysis, stochastic geometry, manifold learning, and functional data analysis. This workshop will bring together experts from these fields to explore these novel challenges and future perspectives.

Graduate Summer School: Mathematics of Topological Phases of Matter
22 Jun 2020 - 26 Jun 2020 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Abstract:
The application of topology to physics has become an integral part of a second quantum revolution in the sciences. The discovery of topological insulators and progress towards topological superconductors realizing non-abelian statistics has moved topological phases of matter onto the center stage in the interaction of topology and physics beyond the quantum Hall effect. While topological physics has been intensively investigated by physicists for the last few decades, the mathematical theory lags far behind. One challenge is formulating the right definition of topological phases of matter, which is closely related to the notoriously difficult problem of finding a rigorous mathematical formulation of quantum field theory. In this summer school, we will focus on two relatively mature foundational topics, and two new directions in the mathematics of topological phases of matter.

Hausdorff Summer School: The Circle Method - Entering its Second Century
29 Jun 2020 - 03 Jul 2020 • Bonn, Germany
Organizer:
Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (hcm)
Abstract:
The Circle Method emerged one hundred years ago from ideas of Ramanujan, Hardy and Littlewood, and quickly became the most powerful analytic method for counting solutions to Diophantine equations. As the Circle Method enters its second century, new work is making significant advances both in strengthening results in classical Diophantine settings, and in demonstrating applications in novel settings. This includes function field, number field, adelic, geometric, and harmonic analytic applications, with striking consequences in areas such as ergodic theory, subconvexity for L -functions, and the Langlands program. This summer school for graduate students and postdocs will present accessible lecture series that demonstrate how to apply the Circle Method in a wide variety of settings.

Causal Inference with Big Data
29 Jun 2020 - 10 Jul 2020 • Singapore, Singapore
Organizer:
Institute for Mathematical Sciences/National University of Singapore
Abstract:
Causal inference is the study of quantifying whether a treatment, policy, or an intervention, denoted as A, has a causal effect on an outcome interest, denoted as Y. What distinguishes a causal effect of A on Y from an associative effect of A on Y, say by computing the correlation between A and Y, is that under a causal effect, intervening on the treatment A leads to changes in the outcome Y. Hence, a causal effect is a stronger notion of a relationship between A and Y than an associative effect.

ESSLLI 2020 — 32nd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
03 Aug 2020 - 14 Aug 2020 • Utrecht, Netherlands
Organizer:
Funded by the European Research Council
Abstract:
The field of natural language semantics has undergone what some refer to as an ‘experimental turn’ and is arguably currently undergoing a ‘computational turn’. By expanding the toolbox available to the semanticist, these two turns have the effect of expanding the phenomena that can be explained and the varieties of semantic explanation that can be offered. For example, experimental methods can help distinguish between alternative explanations of semantic effects, e.g. whether to classify controversial phenomena as implicatures or presuppositions. Similarly, computational models of semantics can generate fine-grained and non-categorical predictions that can fruitfully be tested experimentally. And both kinds of methods can be used to ask questions about the emergence of semantic structures in language, including which factors influence their distribution and typology. Given this wider toolbox and purview, we aim to gather a workshop to showcase exciting new work that develops new semantic explanations using experimental and computational methods, as well as to invite broader reflection on the methodology of semantics now and in its future. Topics of potential interest include but are not limited to: * Experimental semantics and pragmatics * Graded/non-categorical semantic theories and explanations * Information-theoretic measures and explanations in semantics and pragmatics * Semantic universals * Learnability and evolution of semantics and pragmatics * Bayesian approaches to semantics and pragmatics * Probing neural models for learned semantic representations * Semantics in emergent communication protocols * The methodology of semantics We invite anonymized submission of abstracts of 2 pages (12 pt font; 1in or 2.5cm margins) — with an extra page for references of figures — on new research on topics related to those listed above by February 15.

ESSLLI 2020 — Workshop on Computational and Experimental Explanations in Semantics and Pragmatics
10 Aug 2020 - 14 Aug 2020 • Utrecht, Netherlands
Organizer:
Funded by the European Research Council
Abstract:
The field of natural language semantics has undergone what some refer to as an ‘experimental turn’ and is arguably currently undergoing a ‘computational turn’. By expanding the toolbox available to the semanticist, these two turns have the effect of expanding the phenomena that can be explained and the varieties of semantic explanation that can be offered. For example, experimental methods can help distinguish between alternative explanations of semantic effects, e.g. whether to classify controversial phenomena as implicatures or presuppositions. Similarly, computational models of semantics can generate fine-grained and non-categorical predictions that can fruitfully be tested experimentally. And both kinds of methods can be used to ask questions about the emergence of semantic structures in language, including which factors influence their distribution and typology. Given this wider toolbox and purview, we aim to gather a workshop to showcase exciting new work that develops new semantic explanations using experimental and computational methods, as well as to invite broader reflection on the methodology of semantics now and in its future.
Topics:
Experimental semantics and pragmatics * Graded/non-categorical semantic theories and explanations * Information-theoretic measures and explanations in semantics and pragmatics * Semantic universals * Learnability and evolution of semantics and pragmatics * Bayesian approaches to semantics and pragmatics * Probing neural models for learned semantic representations * Semantics in emergent communication protocols * The methodology of semantics

Topics at the Interface of Low Dimensional Group Actions and Geometric Structures
04 Jan 2021 - 15 Jan 2021 • Singapore, Singapore
Organizer:
Institute for Mathematical Sciences/National University of Singapore
Abstract:
In this two-week program, we explore the interactions between geometric group theory, geometric structures and Anosov representations. Geometric group theory, in the broadest sense, seeks to understand the structure of groups through their actions on objects with geometric meaning. Conversely, one can take a known group and attempt to understand all its geometrically meaningful actions. One natural notion that arises in this setting is an Anosov representation, which came about as an attempt to describe what it means for the action of a discrete group on a homogeneous space to be geometrically well behaved. Also, in his Erlangen program, Felix Klein viewed geometry as a space which is invariant under a group of transformations. This gave rise to the notion of a geometric structure, which gives yet another notion of a geometrically meaningful action of a group on a homogeneous space.

The Statistical Physics of Continuum Particle Systems with Strong Interactions
18 Jan 2021 - 28 Jan 2021 • Singapore, Singapore
Organizer:
Institute for Mathematical Sciences/National University of Singapore
Abstract:
This is a two-week program gathering mathematicians and physicists interested in the statistical physics of strongly correlated and long range random particle systems. These particle systems include Gibbs point processes such as Coulomb gases, determinantal point process, eigenvalues of random matrices, etc. They are linked to mathematical long-standing challenges such as the crystallization and best packing conjectures among others. One aspect that we want to put forward in this meeting is that the pioneering tools from classical statistical mechanics à la Ruelle, Lanford, Lebowitz may not have been used enough for the study of these particle systems yet.

International Workshop on Reduced Order Methods
17 May 2021 - 21 May 2021 • Singapore, Singapore
Organizer:
Institute for Mathematical Sciences/National University of Singapore
Abstract:
This is a one-week program gathering mathematicians, engineers, and scientists interested in reduced order models and methods (ROMs) for systems of partial differential equations. The general idea behind ROMs is to derive a low-dimensional model from a high-dimensional model, by integrating techniques from data science, modeling, and simulation, in order to obtain accurate and reliable results at greatly reduced computational costs.
