Stochastic Sampling and Accelerated Time Dynamics on Multidimensional Surfaces
16 Oct 2017 - 20 Oct 2017 • Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
Abstract:
In a multitude of research problems at the forefront of hard- and soft-matter simulation, adequate sampling of the free-energy landscape is a major challenge. Overcoming free-energy barriers in the search for equilibrium states and accurately characterizing temporal evolution that occurs as a system evolves through a series of free-energy minima limit progress in understanding materials synthesis and processing, biology, colloidal engineering, and earth sciences. We will discuss advances and challenges in methods such as transition-path sampling and transition-interface sampling, alchemical methods, umbrella sampling, identifying order parameters and collective variables, accelerated molecular dynamics, metadynamics, variational approaches, replica methods, and coarse-graining.

Workshop IV: Uncertainty Quantification for Stochastic Systems and Applications
13 Nov 2017 - 17 Nov 2017 • Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
Abstract:
In past decades, considerable effort has been devoted to first-principles modeling of materials and materials design. However, uncertainty quantification over multiple scales, especially when some of them are inherently stochastic, is not sufficiently understood despite having critical impact on guiding experimental efforts and design. The uncertainty in materials modeling and design can arise either from the stochastic nature of microscopic description, sampling and numerical errors or from improper modeling assumptions, inadequate or inaccurate parametrization of the system and/or the objective functionals that guide the design optimization. The methods for quantifying the impact of such errors and uncertainties have been recently studied in different communities, including computational quantum chemistry, materials engineering, and mathematics. Applications received by Monday, September 18, 2017 will receive fullest consideration.

Deming Conference — 73rd Annual Deming Conference on Applied Statistics
03 Dec 2017 - 08 Dec 2017 • Atlantic City, NJ, United States
Abstract:
The full program as well as a downloadable printed version will be available on our website by June 1st and online registration will open in August. The purpose of the 3-day Deming Conference on Applied Statistics is to provide a learning experience on recent developments in statistical methodologies, stressing biopharmaceutical applications. The conference is followed by two parallel 2-day short courses. The conference is composed of twelve three-hour tutorials on current applied statistical topics. The books, on which these sessions are based, are available for sale at approximately a 40% discount. These books are not available by mail, but if an acquaintance attends, you could ask him to purchase them. Attendees will receive bound proceedings of the presentations. There will also be poster sessions. The conference will again be held in the state-of-the-art Havana Tower of the Tropicana Casino Resort with free high speed Internet. Walter Young has chaired this conference for 48 consecutive years.

ICERM Semester Workshop: Optimal and Random Point Configurations
26 Feb 2018 - 02 Mar 2018 • Providence, RI, United States
Abstract:
This workshop will focus on probabilistic and physical aspects of systems of interacting points: their statistical mechanics, phase transitions, and ground states. Such systems include random point processes arising in probability and statistical physics in the study of random matrices, determinantal processes, zeros of random polynomials, disordered ground states, and hyperuniform systems as well as configurations satisfying a geometric or analytic optimality constraint. Special cases also involve disordered and ordered sphere packings and covering problems. While systems of interacting particles, their free energy and crystallization properties have been studied for a long time in the statistical physics community, there has also been much activity recently, both in the random matrix community and probability communities and in the complex analysis community to understand the microscopic laws of eigenvalues of random matrices and points in beta-ensembles, as well as understanding and quantifying the rigidity of related random point processes and obtaining explicit formulas for correlation functions. Large point sets with quantifiable distribution properties have long played an important role also in approximation, numerical integration, and coding theory. All these communities are seldom mixing, while these topics also link with globally and locally optimal point configurations that arise in approximation theory, including their crystallization properties. A central objective would thus be to connect the probability, statistical physics, mathematical physics and approximation theory communities.
