ICERM Semester Program on Singularities and Waves In Incompressible Fluids
ID
734334
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.

ICERM Semester Program Workshop Water Waves
ID
882351
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.

Summer Graduate School: Positivity Questions in Geometric Combinatorics
ID
835184
Dates
10 Jun 2017 - 21 Jul 2017
Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
McMullen's g-Conjecture from 1970 is a shining example of mathematical foresight that combined all results available at that time to conjure a complete characterization of face numbers of convex simple/simplicial polytopes. The key statement in its verification is that certain combinatorial numbers associated to geometric (or topological) objects are non-negative. The aim of this workshop is to introduce graduate students to selected contemporary topics in geometric combinatorics with an emphasis on positivity questions. It is fascinating that the dual notions of simple and simplicial polytopes lead to different but equally powerful algebraic frameworks to treat such questions. A key feature of the lectures will be the simultaneous development of these algebraic frameworks from complementary perspectives: combinatorial-topological and convex geometric.

ICERM Topical Workshop: Robust Methods in Probability & Finance
ID
882382
Dates
19 Jun 2017 - 23 Jun 2017
Location
Providence, RI, United States
Abstract
On financial markets one never observes the same data twice; market configurations are subject to change across time. This poses some specific challenges to inference, prediction, and optimal control in financial contexts. Classically, strong model assumptions are needed, while current research aims at methods which are robust with respect to model misspecification. This issue lies at the heart of the envisaged workshops, and the program of the workshops will reflect recent developments in this direction. The last decade saw a rise of robust methods in probability and finance resulting in new numerical and theoretical challenges. Interestingly, these challenges bring together methodologies from PDEs, probability, stochastic analysis, and control theory. Mathematically speaking, robustness typically translates into nonlinearity showing up as a defining feature. Examples in this direction are nonlinear expectations, nonlinear PDEs, and H-infinity optimal stochastic control. Finance has a long tradition of fruitful interactions between these areas. Numerical results often build the first step for subsequent theoretical analysis (and vice versa), thus fitting specifically into ICERM's orientation towards computational and experimental research.

Location
University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, United States
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.

Providence, United States
Abstract
This workshop will bring together academic and industrial researchers with the goal of addressing some of the key challenges in the analysis of seismic inverse problems, with emphases on reconstruction, big data and fast algorithms. We aim to facilitate interactions among scientists addressing all aspects of these problems, from analysts addressing such questions as stability and uniqueness through geophysicists developing new acquisition systems and applying cutting-edge ideas to field data sets. The workshop will place particular emphasis on fast algorithms that address the unique big-data requirements of seismic imaging from the reservoir to whole-Earth scale. Specific topics will include analysis of seismic inverse problems leading to reconstruction (iterative or direct) from finite data; emerging acquisition technologies; uncertainty quantification; big-data simulation; inversion and model reduction, including compressed sensing; fast solvers in frequency and time; anisotropy; and applications at a variety of scales.
