Nonlinear Algebra (Semester Program)
05 Sep 2018 - 07 Dec 2018 • ICERM/ Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, United States
The theory, algorithms, and software of linear algebra are familiar tools across mathematics, the applied sciences, and engineering. This ubiquity of linear algebra masks a fairly recent growth of nonlinear algebra in mathematics and its applications to other disciplines. The proliferation of nonlinear algebra has been fueled by recent theoretical advances, efficient implementations of core algorithms, and an increased awareness of these tools.
AIM Workshop: Boltzmann Machines
17 Sep 2018 - 21 Sep 2018 • American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, United States
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to the mathematics of Boltzmann machines. Researchers have been employing tools in information theory, algebra, combinatorics, geometry, and optimization to understand these models. The result is a situation where further progress probably requires a more intimate merger of these tools.
Semester Program Workshop: Core computational methods
17 Sep 2018 - 21 Sep 2018 • ICERM/ Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, United States
This workshop will focus on core algorithms in the three crucial areas in nonlinear algebra: numerical algebraic geometry, symbolic computation, and combinatorial methods. There have been tremendous advances in algorithms in these areas. As applications become more sophisticated, and require more computing resources, the basic algorithms and implementations need to step up to match the demand from applications. This workshop will bring together experts to exchange ideas on new algorithms that are needed and on improvement of existing ones. It will incite collaboration on hybrid algorithms involving computational methods from the three areas. Examples of open problems to be addressed include: certification of numerical methods, and combining numerical, symbolic and combinatorial methods to allow a much larger reach for decomposition algorithms.

Semester Program Workshop: Real algebraic geometry and optimization
15 Oct 2018 - 19 Oct 2018 • ICERM/ Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, United States
This workshop will focus on techniques and structures in real algebraic geometry and optimization, including computational tools for semi-algebraic sets, semidefinite programming techniques for polynomial optimization, and applications of these tools to problems in computer vision. Real algebraic geometry provides powerful tools to analyze the behavior of optimization problems, the geometry of feasible sets, and to develop new relaxations for hard non-convex problems. On the other hand, numerical solvers for semidefinite programs have led to new fast algorithms in real algebraic geometry. Algebraic methods over the real numbers are essential for many real-world applications. This workshop aims to explore the cutting edge of techniques in real algebraic geometry and convex optimization as well as applications of these tools to problems in computer vision and other information sciences.

Semester Program Workshop: Nonlinear algebra in applications
12 Nov 2018 - 16 Nov 2018 • ICERM/ Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, United States
Applications often pose many algorithmic, computational, and theoretical challenges, and overcoming these challenges has been a driving force behind many recent innovations in nonlinear algebra. This workshop will bring together mathematicians and practitioners with a focus on recently developed methods that have been motivated by solving problems arising in applications. Three key hallmarks of the methods presented are efficient computation of solutions, exploitation of structure, and reformulation of numerically unstable systems. Some of the topics planned for discussion include algebraic cryptanalysis and coding theory, chemical reaction networks, computational biology, computer-aided geometric design, applications of enumerative and tropical geometry, gauge and string theory in physics, and applications to statistics such as probabilistic graphical models and singular learning theory.

Derived Algebraic Geometry
22 Jan 2019 - 24 May 2019 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Derived algebraic geometry is an extension of algebraic geometry that provides a convenient framework for directly treating non-generic geometric situations (such as non-transverse intersections in intersection theory), in lieu of the more traditional perturbative approaches (such as the "moving" lemma). This direct approach, in addition to being conceptually satisfying, has the distinct advantage of preserving the symmetries of the situation, which makes it much more applicable. In particular, in recent years, such techniques have found applications in diverse areas of mathematics, ranging from arithmetic geometry, mathematical physics, geometric representation theory, and homotopy theory. This semester long program will be dedicated to exploring these directions further, and finding new connections.
Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces
22 Jan 2019 - 24 May 2019 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces are two important areas of Algebraic Geometry that have recently witnessed a flurry of activity and substantial progress on many fundamental open questions. In this program we aim to bring together key researchers in these and related areas to highlight the recent exciting progress and to explore future avenues of research. This program will focus on the following themes: Geometry and Derived Categories, Birational Algebraic Geometry, Moduli Spaces of Stable Varieties, Geometry in Characteristic p>0, and Applications of Algebraic Geometry: Elliptic Fibrations of Calabi-Yau Varieties in Geometry, Arithmetic and the Physics of String Theory.
