Complex High-Dimensional Energy Landscapes
11 Sep 2017 - 15 Dec 2017 • Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
Abstract:
Recent advances in computational resources and the development of high-throughput frameworks enable the efficient sampling of complicated multivariate functions such as energy and electronic property landscapes of inorganic, organic, biomolecular, and hybrid materials, and functional nanostructures. Combined with the recent focus on data science and the materials genome initiative, this leads to a rapidly growing need for numerical methods and a fundamental mathematical understanding of efficient sampling approaches, optimization techniques, hierarchical surrogate models and coarse graining techniques, and methods for uncertainty quantification. The goal of this long program is to bring together the scientific communities from pure and applied mathematics with computer science, materials science, chemistry, physics, and biomolecular science to advance the understanding of simulation, stochastic sampling and optimization methods for multidimensional energy landscapes.

Mathematical Modeling of Cortical Spreading Depression (SD) and Related Phenomena
12 Feb 2018 - 16 Feb 2018 • IMA/University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, United States
Abstract:
This workshop will bring together mathematical and computational scientists and experimental researchers studying cortical spreading depression (SD) and related phenomena. SD is a disorder of the central nervous system in which a population of brain cells experience complete depolarization, as associated with a massive redistribution of ion concentrations across the cell membrane. Among the topics to be discussed at the workshop are the relation of SD to other pathological phenomena, including epilepsy. Other topics to be discussed at the workshop include the biophysical basis of SD and the significance of 2D or 3D spatial patterns in SD, as well as electrophysiological control of SD and related phenomena.

ICERM Semester Workshop: Fast Algorithms for Generating Static and Dynamically Changing Point Configurations
12 Mar 2018 - 16 Mar 2018 • Providence, RI, United States
Abstract:
This workshop focuses on fast algorithms for the generation of high quality point configurations and meshes such as hierarchical schemes combined with energy or geometrical optimization techniques. Energy methods utilizing appropriate potentials for a prescribed density on a given manifold have been effective in generating point configurations with good covering and packing properties. These methods rely on efficient energy, gradient, and potential computations which can be achieved by hierarchical algorithms that model a system in a recursively compressed (low-rank or low-dimensional) form where information is transmitted non-locally on a hierarchical tree structure. Different aspects of this technique can be found in the classical FFT, multigrid, and fast multipole method (FMM), as well as the recently developed fast direct solvers, multilevel models in statistics, and convolutional neural networks in deep learning. Fast generation of point configurations and meshes for dynamically evolving systems is especially challenging. For example, in molecular dynamics simulations, the shape of the molecule changes at each time step, and many numerical methods require an underlying “mesh” (e.g., points in particle methods, or surface or volume elements in finite element and integral equation methods) at each time step. Among the essential considerations are the history dependency of the meshes for simulations where the mesh needs to be updated at each time step; coupling of the fast spatial algorithms with the state-of-the-art point and mesh generation tools; recursive algorithm implementation and parallelization; and applications in atmosphere, Earth, gravitational models, dynamics of biomolecular systems; fluid dynamics, and beyond.

Electrohydrodynamics and Electrodiffusion in Material Sciences and Biology
12 Mar 2018 - 16 Mar 2018 • IMA/University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, United States
Abstract:
Electrohydrodynamics and electrodiffusion, in particular the study of droplets and deformable membranes in fluid under the effect of electric field or the flow of ions in salt exchange membranes and fuel cells, are classical fields in the material sciences. The potential applications of electrohydrodynamics to microfluidics and biomedical engineering has given a renewed interest to this classical field. On the other hand, description and modeling of corresponding phenomena in biology is relatively sparse, but its presence and significance is starting to be recognized. This workshop will bring together experts of electrohydrodynamics and electrodiffusion in both the material sciences and biology to foster discussion. The talks will address various aspects of electrohydrodynamics and electrodiffusion, including phenomenology, modeling, and computation.

Dynamic Contact Lines: Progress and Opportunities
26 Mar 2018 - 28 Mar 2018 • IMA/University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, United States
Abstract:
Dynamic contact lines play a central role in numerous natural settings and industrial applications, yet remain one of the most challenging physical phenomena to understand and model. Arising when one fluid displaces another on a solid substrate, dynamic contact lines often yield highly nonlinear multiscale free-boundary problems whose resolution requires drawing together knowledge from fluid mechanics, interfacial phenomena, rheology, experimental measurements, and applied and computational mathematics. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together leading researchers to discuss recent progress in our understanding and modeling of dynamic contact lines and to identify promising opportunities for future research.

ICERM Semester Workshop: Computation and Optimization of Energy, Packing, and Covering
09 Apr 2018 - 13 Apr 2018 • Providence, RI, United States
Abstract:
The packing and covering of equal geometric shapes, such as spheres or convex polyhedra, are classical geometric optimization problems. They have a long mathematical tradition and were for instance part of Hilbert's famous twenty-three problems for the 20th century. Nevertheless, seemingly simple packing and covering problems are still extremely hard to solve and generally, far from a solution. Likewise, minimal energy problems for pair potentials, of which best-packing is a special case, have many such unresolved questions. However, in recent years several new developments with computer assisted approaches have led to previously unexpected breakthrough results. These involve massive computer searches and techniques from numerical optimization, as well as the creation and application of new optimization techniques, such as specific semi-definite programming bounds. New techniques for computer assisted certified proofs allow one to obtain results that would otherwise have been difficult, if not impossible, to check.

Queuing and Networks
14 May 2018 - 18 May 2018 • IMA/University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, United States
Abstract:
Owing to the pressing needs in applications, the research in queuing theory remains a very active area. Innovative ideas using switching diffusions to replace diffusion models have gained ground. Stochastic partial differential equations have also been brought into the research front. Research in networked systems has received much attention through the years. In addition to traditional applications in chemical reaction systems, communication networks, and wireless networks, the areas of networked systems have been evolving rapidly due to recent interests in new areas of research in social networks, cyber-physical systems, and multi-agent systems, among others.

Ecological and Biological Systems
04 Jun 2018 - 08 Jun 2018 • IMA/University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, United States
Abstract:
Many ecological and biological applications require indepth studies and analysis of the underlying control problems involved. This in turn calls for new mathematical models and the use of sophisticated mathematical tools. Recent research promotes the use of geometric control theory and the combined use of stochastic analysis and differential geometry. For example, the study on infectious disease has a long and illustrated history that goes back to the malaria outbreak in the early twentieth century that led to the development of compartmental models in epidemiology. The recent outbreak of the Zika virus adds new demand for people working in mathematical epidemiology. This workshop will bring together scientists from both theoretical research and data analysis.
