ICERM Semester Program on Singularities and Waves In Incompressible Fluids
ID
734345
Dates
30 Jan 2017 - 05 May 2017
Location
Providence, United States
Abstract
Incompressible fluids are an abundant source of mathematical and practical problems. The question of global-in-time regularity versus finite-time singularity formation for incompressible fluids, governed by the Navier-Stokes or Euler equations, has been one of the most challenging outstanding problems in applied PDE. There have also been new developments in the study of the onset of turbulence due to linear and nonlinear instabilities in incompressible fluids. Interfacial and surface water waves are physical phenomena that, in addition to the challenges outlined above, involve the evolution of free boundaries. These problems embody many of the mathematical challenges found in studies of nonlinear PDEs.

Progress on these topics is possible because of advances in analysis, numerical computations and physical experiments. In addition, ocean field observations provide a reality test to all conclusions and invite new problems to be addressed. In this program, we provide a venue for interaction among researchers engaged in all of these problem-solving techniques to focus on topics arising in incompressible fluids.

Topics of particular interest include: singularity formation, stability and bifurcation; the modeling and analysis of simplified phenomenological models for the description of coherent structures; and time-dependent and steady free boundary problems including water waves, vortex sheets, capillary problems with contact lines and viscous waves with boundary layers.

IMA Annual Program Workshop: Emerging Topics in Optics
ID
831973
Dates
24 Apr 2017 - 28 Apr 2017
Location
IMA, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, United States
Abstract
Optics and Photonics (O&P) is a dynamic field spanning from fundamental and applied physics to device design and engineering, in which a wide range of mathematical areas play an important role. In addition to the novelty and the breadth of applications of O&P, these areas have proven to be a source of new directions in mathematical modeling, analysis, and computation. This workshop will comprise lectures by and opportunities for interaction among mathematicians, physicists, and engineers on modeling and computation in nano-optics, meta-materials, and other areas of O&P, as well as their applications to, for example, nano-optical-mechanical systems, neuro-science, energy, and information storage and processing. The workshop will seek to identify opportunities for mathematicians and scientists in these fields to collaborate and contribute to these exciting areas.

ICERM Semester Program Workshop Water Waves
ID
882428
Dates
24 Apr 2017 - 28 Apr 2017
Location
Providence, RI, United States
Abstract
The theory of water waves has been at the forefront of mathematics for over two centuries. In recent years there has been an explosion of interest in the subject. This workshop will bring together researchers contributing to all aspects of water waves: experiments, computation and analysis. Currently active topics in water waves include the effects of viscosity, surface tension, vorticity, surface wind and bottom topography on both time-dependent and steady waves. However, the workshop will range well beyond these topics.

AIM workshop — Mathematical questions in wave turbulence theory
ID
815133
Dates
15 May 2017 - 19 May 2017
Location
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States
Abstract
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to mathematical questions in weak turbulence theory. This branch of equilibrium statistical physics tries to describe the dynamics of nonlinear waves over long time intervals, or in the presence of a random forcing. It was developed mostly by physicists and applied mathematicians in the past century, but very little is known rigorously in this field. It is our aim to advance its mathematical understanding.

Workshop III: Data Assimilation, Uncertainty Reduction, and Optimization for Subsurface Flow
ID
831990
Dates
22 May 2017 - 26 May 2017
Location
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
Abstract
There are major computational challenges and substantial uncertainties associated with model inversion and performance optimization in oil field applications. As production and (in some cases) 4D seismic and electromagnetic data are collected, there are inevitably discrepancies between the predicted and actual reservoir responses. This drives the need for data assimilation, usually referred to as history matching in petroleum engineering. History matching involves the solution of a computationally demanding, highly ill-conditioned, inverse problem. Key complications that arise are the uncertain nature of the geology (and thus the need to "properly" sample the posterior distribution), combined with the need to retain geological realism in history-matched reservoir descriptions. Additional complexity enters as a result of the unknown rock-physics quantities needed to integrate multiphysics data sets. Applications received by Monday, March 27, 2017, will receive fullest consideration.

Abstract
The Math-to-Industry Boot Camp is an intense six-week session designed to provide graduate students with training and experience that is valuable for employment outside of academia. The program is targeted at PhD students in pure and applied mathematics. The boot camp consists of courses in the basics of programming, data analysis, and mathematical modeling. Students will work in teams on projects and will be provided with soft skills training. There will be two group projects during the session: a small-scale project designed to introduce the concept of solving open-ended problems and working in teams, and a "capstone project" that will be posed by industry scientists. The students will be able to interact with industry participants at various points in the program. Applicants must be current graduate students in a PhD program at a US institution during the period of the boot camp.

Topical Workshop: Pedestrian Dynamics: Modeling, Validation, and Calibration
ID
881516
Dates
21 Aug 2017 - 25 Aug 2017
Location
ICERM/Brown University, Providence, RI, United States
Abstract
The complex dynamical behavior of large pedestrian crowds has long fascinated researchers from various scientific fields. Academic studies began in earnest in the last century, starting with empirical observations in the early 1950s and continuing with the development of models in the field of applied physics. In more recent years, applied mathematicians have become increasingly interested in the analytical aspects and computational challenges related to simulation of existing models. With ongoing technical development, more and more data such as pedestrian trajectories and velocities have become available, leading to new questions of calibration of the mathematical models. The main aim of this workshop is to initiate contact between a variety of scientific fields,to foster interdisciplinary research and to explore new research directions such as data assimilation techniques and big-data analysis.

Complex High-Dimensional Energy Landscapes
ID
832289
Dates
11 Sep 2017 - 15 Dec 2017
Location
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.
