Description

Discrete mathematics is a branch of the mathematical sciences which poses a wide range of challenging research problems in its own right and gives rise to important applications in other fields. This 3rd IMA conference on discrete mathematics, following on from the previous two at Derby, will consider a range of aspects of discrete mathematics, both pure and applied. It is open to researchers working with mathematical structures and abstract constructs, and to those involved in the theory and practice of discrete mathematics. Results which establish links between different areas of discrete mathematics are welcomed, as are applications and the development of new tools. The purpose of this event is to highlight progress in the field through the development of novel theories, methodologies, and applications accordingly, and to inspire future work. Topics of discrete mathematics including, but not limited to, the following: Graph Theory; Extremal Combinatorics: Additive Combinatorics: Probabilistic Combinatorics: Enumerative and Analytic Combinatorics: Matroids: Combinatorial Algorithms: Designs and Finite Geometries: Ordered and partially ordered sets: Set Systems: Combinatorial optimisation: links with related areas including discrete probability and number theory: Applications. Call for Papers: Papers will be accepted (or not) for the conference based on a short 300 word abstract for oral presentation. Abstracts should be submitted online at https://my.ima.org.uk. If your abstract is a less conventional part of discrete mathematics, please try to make clear how your abstract relates to discrete mathematics. Please state whether your title is intended for oral or poster presentation (poster presentations are optional). Oral presentations are expected to be 25 minutes in length, including 5 minutes for questions and answers. CLOSING DATE- 14 January 2022 Acceptance Notification – 28 January 2022 Conference Fees: Early Bird Fees*: IMA Member £220 Non‐IMA Member £300 IMA Student £150 Non‐IMA Student £160 *Early Bird Fees will be available until Monday 7 March 2022, after which the fees will rise by £20.

3rd IMA Conference on Inverse Problems from Theory to Application

Description

3 – 5 May 2022 International Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Edinburgh

https://ima.org.uk/18111/3rd-ima-conference-on-inverse-problems-from-theory-to-application/

CALL FOR PAPERS

Inverse problems are widespread in many varied fields such as medical and satellite imaging, biology, astronomy, geophysics, environmental sciences, computer vision, energy, finance, and defence. These problems are inverse in the sense that they arise from seeking to use a mathematical or physical model “backwards” to indirectly determine a quantity of interest from the effect that this quantity causes on some observed data.

A main challenge resulting from using models “backwards” to measure causes from their effects is that solutions are often not well posed, i.e., not unique and/or unstable with respect to small perturbations in the data. This difficulty has stimulated an important amount of research and innovation at the interface of applied mathematics, statistics, engineering, physics, and other fields, leading to great social and economic benefit through impact on science, medicine, and engineering.

The aim of this conference is to bring together the applied mathematics, statistics, machine learning, engineering, physics and industrial communities around the topic of inverse problems to discuss recent developments and open challenges in theory, methodology, computational algorithms, and applications. We welcome industrial representatives, doctoral students, early career and established academics working in this field to attend. Topics of interest include, for example, • Inverse problems in mathematical and computational imaging. • Inverse problems in science, medicine, engineering, and other fields. • Model‐based and data‐driven methods for solving inverse • Optimisation, statistical, and machine learning methods for solving inverse problems. • Mathematical theory for inverse problems. • Deterministic and stochastic computational methods and algorithms.

Call for Papers instructions: Call for Papers ‐ Papers will be accepted for the conference based on a 100 word abstract for oral or poster presentation. We welcome abstracts to be submitted by 7th January 2022 via https://my.ima.org.uk./. Please indicate whether your title is intended for oral “presentation” or “poster” presentation. Please send your abstracts in plain text format (no equations).

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Pamela By

Description

Signal processing and machine learning constitutes an important area for the application of mathematical concepts and techniques, in an era where learning algorithms must be transparent, robust, explainable and understandable, and ethical. It is a thriving area, as demonstrated by the success of the UK hosting the recent International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) in Brighton in 2019.

Signal and information processing is at the heart of our technological world, fuelled by developments in, for example, mobile communications, networks and graphs, multimedia systems, medical image analysis, genomics and bioengineering, neural signal processing, big data processing and internet of things. The aim of the conference is to bring together mathematicians, statisticians and engineers with a view to exploring recent developments in mathematics for signal processing and machine learning and identifying fruitful avenues for further research. It is hoped that the meeting will help to attract more mathematicians into this important and challenging field. The conference will follow the same successful format as our previous conferences, comprising tutorials, keynote addresses and non-overlapping technical sessions consisting of oral and poster presentations. A social programme will be organised and will include a reception to welcome delegates.

Homotopy theory with applications to arithmetic and geometry [European side]

2022-06-27 through 2022-06-30
Max Planck Institute

Meeting Type: twinned conference (see description)

Contact: Aaron Mazel-Gee

Description

The field of homotopy theory originated in the study of topological spaces up to deformation, but has since been applied effectively in several other disciplines. Indeed, homotopical ideas lead to the resolution of several long-standing open conjectures, for instance on smooth structures on spheres, the moduli of curves, and the cohomology of fields. More recently, Bhatt, Morrow, and Scholze used homotopical methods to compare different cohomology theories for algebraic varieties, thereby resolving open questions in arithmetic geometry. In a similarly arithmetic vein, Galatius and Venkatesh initiated the study of Galois representations with homotopical means, whereas Clausen and Scholze revisited the foundations of analytic topology. These and other recent developments in the interface of arithmetic and topology opened up new lines of attack towards classical open questions, which sparked a wide range of current research activities. This conference intends to survey some of the most spectacular recent advances in the fields, thereby paving the way to new developments and future interactions. Our goal is to foster scientific exchange and collaboration between established researchers, emerging leaders, early career mathematicians, and graduate students.

This will be a split transatlantic conference taking place at the Fields Institute in Canada and the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Germany, with videoconferencing connections in place to help collaboration.

Homotopical Methods in Fixed Point Theory

University of Colorado Boulder
Boulder, CO; USA

Meeting Type: summer school

Contact: Agnes Beaudry, Kate Ponto, Dylan Wilson

Description

Description The goal of this summer school is to introduce participants to tools and ideas from algebraic topology and homotopy theory that are used in the study of fixed point theory. The workshop will be centered around mini-courses, both on classical fixed-point theory and on modern techniques such as duality theory, spectra, and trace methods in algebraic K-theory.

The intended audience for this summer school should be familiar with the material in Hatcher (except the appendices). This reflects our goal that the school be accessible to second and third year students with an interest in algebraic topology. The school will be structured around a few mini-courses, which will run in an active-learning style.
