Efficient Simulation Algorithms for Viscoelastic and Viscous non-Newtonian Fluids
02 May 2021 - 07 May 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
The mathematical description of the behaviour of typical fluids, like water at room temperature, was one of the great scientific breakthroughs of the 19th century. Understanding and applying the equations that describe these fluid drove many developments in mathematics for the next 100 years. Later, with the advent of modern computing, new fields of mathematics emerged devoted to designing algorithms to simulate these flows. This simulation capability has revolutionised many fields of engineering: no car, aeroplane, bridge, or stent is built without it.

Quantization in Derived Algebraic Geometry and Representation Theory
02 May 2021 - 07 May 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
An essential paradigm in science is solving a problem through the study of its symmetries. Whether dealing with a chemical, physical, or mathematical system, its symmetries are intimately related to the conservation laws characterizing the system itself. Therefore, their study leads us to its full understanding. Quantum groups are deformations of the most elementary symmetries in Nature, describing, for example, infinitesimal layers of ice. They first appeared in the eighties as symmetries of one and two-dimensional statistical mechanical models and are nowadays ubiquitous objects in mathematics. Quantum groups represent only an instance of the more general Theory of Quantization, in which the procedure of "deforming" classical structures gives rise to their "quantum" analog. This theory proved soon to have spectacular connections with many and only apparently unrelated areas of mathematics and physics, especially in representation theory (as described above), algebraic geometry (in particular the theory of moduli spaces), and theoretical physics (e.g. gauge theory). The present workshop aims to provide a survey of the state of the art of the Quantization Theory, with a special emphasis on using advanced techniques from (derived) algebraic geometry to the realm of Quantization.

Contextual Integrity for Differential Privacy
09 May 2021 - 14 May 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Privacy concerns are becoming a major obstacle to using data, and it is often unclear how current regulations should translate into technology. Over the last decade, differential privacy has emerged as the de facto algorithmic gold-standard in privacy-preserving data analysis, enabling analysis of sensitive data with rigorous privacy guarantees. It is a parameterized privacy notion, and tuning this privacy parameter allows an analyst to smoothly tradeoff between privacy to the individual with accuracy of the analysis. Much of the theoretical work on differential privacy has purposely left this parameter as a free variable that should be chosen based upon the context of data use. Contextual integrity is a framework for formalizing context of data use, and offers a descriptive categorization of information flows as either appropriate or inappropriate based upon the context and cultural norms. This workshop will combine tools from differential privacy and contextual integrity to develop context-based prescriptions for the use and implementation of differential privacy. It will bring together a multi-disciplinary team of privacy researchers from computer science, information science, statistics, business, law, and public policy to address this multifaceted challenge.

Geometric PDE and Applications to Problems in Conformal and CR Geometry
16 May 2021 - 21 May 2021 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Conformal geometry is the study of properties of spaces and mappings which depend on the measurement of angles but not of lengths. An example is the stereographic projection mapping from a sphere to a plane, which distorts lengths but preserves angles. Mathematicians have made much progress in recent years in the study of conformal geometry by using and developing new tools and methods from a variety of mathematical fields, including analysis, non-linear PDE and topology. This workshop will bring together experts from a variety of mathematical backgrounds with the goal of furthering our understanding of conformal geometry and its complex number analogue, CR geometry.

Analysis on Singular Spaces
16 May 2021 - 21 May 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
The presence of singularity in mathematics and physics is an omnipresent phenomena which is the subject of an enormous amount of current research. One reason for this is that techniques which are useful and well understood in the context of smooth spaces do not carry over automatically to singular spaces in general. Depending on the type of singularity involved, one might find that a theorem which is true in the smooth setting requires modification even to make sense in a particular singular setting, and a singular object with extra structure may lead to a generalization of a theorem in which that extra structure plays a role.

Chromatic Homotopy and Algebraic K-Theory
23 May 2021 - 28 May 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
This workshop focuses on the interaction between algebraic K-theory and chromatic homotopy theory. Algebraic K theory translates fundamental arithmetic and geometric information about a ring or scheme into homotopy theory. The chromatic perspective is a fundamental organizing principle of homotopy theory, decomposing a space or spectrum into certain `prime localizations'. Recent major advances use these localizations to prove descent results for algebraic K theory, or give vanishing results for K-theory in certain cases. This conference gathers mathematicians working in algebraic K-theory and in chromatic homotopy theory to explore these recent advances, work on open problems, and set the syllabus for future work in the field.

Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
New experiments are challenging our conventional understanding of past, present, and future in the quantum world. This workshop will, therefore, explore the very foundations of our understanding of space, time, and gravity by looking at new mathematical concepts and methods related to the quantum processes of measuring location, orientation, speed, cause and effect. We expect to forge a path that blends together new ideas on how our description of the structure of space and time must be modified to fully understand how to combine gravity with quantum physics.

New Trends in Symbolic Dynamics and Ergodic Theory: Dynamical Obstructions arising from Complexity Theory
30 May 2021 - 04 Jun 2021 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
A common intuition in dynamical systems is that systems with low complexity should have some sort of structure, while systems with high complexity should exhibit more randomness. We explore this notion in various settings, particularly focussing on recent developments in ergodic theory and symbolic dynamics that are related to combinatorial, number theoretic, and algebraic problems. Fine properties of sequences of numbers can be studied via dynamics, relating the complexity of the sequence to hidden structures it contains. The proposed meeting will cover such recent evelopments, bringing together mathematicians from a variety of fields, including ergodic theory, symbolic dynamics, number theory, and group theory to discuss on long-standing open problems that have implications for these fields.

Frontiers in Billiard Dynamics
30 May 2021 - 04 Jun 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Mathematical billiards are a fast growing field of the modern theory of dynamical systems and a deep source of insights, methods and examples in dynamics. It has greatly impacted many areas, ranging from integrable Hamiltonian systems and KAM theory, hyperbolic (chaotic) systems, to Teichm\"uller dynamics. It has also stimulated much recent applied research in such areas of mathematical physics as equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics and quantum theory. The proposed workshop will bring together leading mathematicians, mathematical physicists, and younger researchers whose work is connected to the theory and applications of billiard dynamics from a variety of perspectives. Topics will include new modalities of billiard systems, with special attention given to applications to statistical physics such as, for example, the study of classical and quantum transport phenomena.

Modeling Fluid-Driven Fracture — at the Crossroads of Applied Mathematics, Earth Science, and Earth Resources Engineering
06 Jun 2021 - 11 Jun 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Fluid-driven crack propagation is the process by which pressurized fluid drives cracks through solid materials. Such a process is not only central to hydraulic fracture stimulation of oil and gas wells, but also it describes movement of molten rock through the Earth’s crust and water through the subsurface of glacial ice sheets. Hence, there is significant, and hitherto relatively untapped, potential for multidisciplinary investigation. Furthermore, the underlying mathematical problem is challenging even for simple propagation geometries and ignoring variability in material properties of the rock and/or ice sheet. When realistic variability and complexity is considered, the problem exceeds the capabilities of current computer simulation tools. To address these concerns, the objective of this workshop is to convene a BIRS Workshop of Applied Mathematicians, Geo-Scientists, and Engineers from Academia and Industry to accelerate the development of the state-of-the-art tools to analyze the evolution of fluid-driven cracks that propagate in complex solid media.

XX International Workshop on Numerical Methods for Non-Newtonian Flows
06 Jun 2021 - 11 Jun 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Fluids that exhibit physical behaviours which are not Newtonian are extremely common in nature and in industrial contexts. These occur in many processes underlying natural resource industries (mining, oil and gas). These are key in manufacturing industries such as polymer processing and in new environmentally-driven manufacturing products such as printing/layering in battery manufacture, coating flows, drug and droplet encapsulation and many bio-fluid applications (e.g. blood, mucus, semen, synovial fluids). This workshop brings together mathematically oriented scientists and engineers to work on these societally important issues.

Entropic Regularization of Optimal Transport and Applications
20 Jun 2021 - 25 Jun 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
The mathematics of optimal transport (OT) has grown to become a unifying theme in many scientific disciplines, from solving purely mathematical problems of analysis, geometry, and partial differential equations to developing revolutionary new methods in economics, statistics, machine learning and artificial intelligence. In the last decade, the impact of optimal transport in the study of geometry was highlighted by two Fields medals (Villani 2010, Figalli 2018). On the other hand, OT has established itself as a viable alternative to classical maximum likelihood based methods in statistics and data science. Other notable applications include generative adversarial network (GAN) in machine learning (Wasserstein GAN), new applications to stem cell biology, and economic applications such as generalizations of the Nobel prize winning Gale-Shapley algorithm, online auctions, and option pricing.

Knots, Surfaces and 3-manifolds
20 Jun 2021 - 25 Jun 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
A mathematical knot can be thought of as a piece of knotted string with ends attached. This knotted circle is allowed to move freely in space as long as it does not pass through itself. In recent years the study of knots has gained momentum through a series of applications, for instance in physics and in molecular biology. Such applications bring new urgency to certain classical questions pertaining to knots and how they sit inside 3-dimensional space. Much like a knotted wand dipped into liquid soap will bound a bubble, mathematical knots sitting in 3-dimensional space bound surfaces. Studying pairs of the form (knot, surface) sitting in 3-dimensional space rather than just knots, provides additional structure to better grasp basic questions, such as whether or not a given knot can be untangled and if so how.

Thermodynamic Formalism for Geodesic Flows
27 Jun 2021 - 02 Jul 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
This workshop will study this question for systems of geometric origin. One example of this is a particle bouncing inside a region -- think of a ball bouncing around a billiard table, or a light beam bouncing around a room whose walls are mirrors. If the walls are flat then the behavior is fairly predictable, but if they are curved then one often observes random-looking behavior in the long run. Or imagine walking in a straight line along a surface; if the surface is flat then changing the starting point a little will lead to a predictable change in the trajectory. However, if the surface is curved like a saddle then different trajectories will spread out and your location after walking for a long time will eventually seem to be random. The task of giving precise descriptions of systems such as these requires a more complete development of the theory of thermodynamic formalism for systems of geometric origin, which is precisely the goal of this workshop.

Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
In arithmetic geometry, one studies solutions to polynomial equations defined with arithmetically interesting coefficients, such as integers or rational numbers. One way to study such objects, which has seen tremendous success in the last several decades, is by investigating their symmetries. Quite surprisingly, in several interesting situations, many of the geometric and arithmetic properties of the objects in question are actually controlled by the object’s symmetries.

The purpose of the summer school is to introduce graduate students to key mainstream directions in the recent development of geometry, which sprang from Riemannian Geometry in an attempt to use its methods in various contexts of non-smooth geometry. This concerns recent developments in metric generalizations of the theory of nonpositively curved spaces and discretizations of methods in geometry, geometric measure theory and global analysis. The metric geometry perspective gave rise to new results and problems in Riemannian Geometry as well.

Geometry via Arithmetic
11 Jul 2021 - 16 Jul 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
There is an age-old relationship between arithmetic and geometry, going back at least to Euclid's Elements. Historically, it has usually been geometry that has been used to enrich our understanding of arithmetic, but the purpose of this workshop is to study the flow of information in the other direction. Namely, how can arithmetic enhance our understanding of geometry? This meeting will bring together researchers from both sides of the partnership, to explore ways to bind the two fields ever closer together.

Arithmetic Aspects of Deformation Theory
18 Jul 2021 - 23 Jul 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
One focus of modern number theory is to study symmetries of numbers that are roots of polynomial equations. Collections of such symmetries are called Galois groups, and they often encode interesting arithmetical information. The theory of Galois representations provides a way to understand these Galois groups and in particular, how they interact with other areas of mathematics. This workshop will investigate how these Galois representations can be put together into families, and search for new arithmetic applications of these families.

Diophantine Methods in Algebraic Dynamics
01 Aug 2021 - 06 Aug 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Algebraic dynamics is the study of discrete dynamical systems on algebraic varieties. It has its origins in complex dynamics, where one studies self-maps of complex varieties, and now encompasses dynamical systems defined over global fields. In recent years, researchers have fruitfully investigated the latter by applying number-theoretic techniques, particularly those of Diophantine approximation and geometry, subfields which study the metric and geometric behavior of rational or algebraic points of a variety.

Random Graphs and Statistical Inference: New Methods and Applications
08 Aug 2021 - 13 Aug 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
The systematic study of random graphs commenced with the seminal work of Erd" os and Renyi in the 1960s. Beyond the classical connections and synergies between random graphs and computer science, over the last few years a new exciting connection between random graphs and statistical inference has been discovered. These connections have led to important new insights on computational problems and statistical inference problems and to new methods for the analysis of random graphs or random discrete structures in general. In addition, since the late 1990s an insightful approach called the cavity method by physicists has been applied to put forward predictions on structural properties of random graphs and their phase transitions. More recently, it has inspired new algorithms for statistical inference problems such as message passing algorithms and novel spectral algorithms. With this workshop we hope to stimulate research and foster new exciting interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers with different backgrounds and expertise in random graphs, computer science, probability, statistics, statistical inference and information theory.

Totally Disconnected Locally Compact Groups via Group Actions
15 Aug 2021 - 20 Aug 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Group actions are a mathematical approach to analysing structures by studying the rearrangements of the elements of the structure that preserve the defining properties of the structure. Indeed, historically, group theory developed primarily as a technique for handling questions concerning the resolution of algebraic equations (the group introduced here by Galois permutes the roots of the equation), and has since become a standard language for formalising and solving various natural questions from a wide range of mathematics.

Iwasawa Theory for GL(2) and Applications: Open Problems and New Directions
15 Aug 2021 - 20 Aug 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
One remarkable development in algebraic number theory over the last two decades is the proof of many cases of the main conjecture of Iwasawa theory for elliptic curves over the rational, leading to spectacular advances on the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture. Over the past few years, the methods used to prove these results have been refined to remove some of their hypotheses and extended to other settings, but despite these improvements some important cases remain largely open. This workshop aims to foster new developments in these directions by clarifying the state of the art of the aforementioned results, identifying some of the technical limitations of the current methods, and encouraging the exchange of ideas between participants with different areas of expertise, while also bringing new researchers (recent PhDs and post-docs) in the area up to speed on current methods and results.

Supersingular Isogeny Graphs in Cryptography
22 Aug 2021 - 27 Aug 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Despite the enormous commercial potential that quantum computing presents, the existence of large-scale quantum computers also has the potential to destroy current security infrastructures. Post-quantum cryptography aims to develop new security protocols that will remain secure even after powerful quantum computers are built. This workshop focuses on isogeny-based cryptography, one of the most promising areas in post-quantum cryptography. In particular, we will examine the security, feasibility and development of new protocols in isogeny-based cryptography, as well as the intricate and beautiful pure mathematics of the related isogeny graphs and elliptic curve endomorphism rings. To address the goals of both training and research, the program will be comprised of keynote speakers and working group sessions.

Bound-Preserving Space and Time Discretizations for Convection-Dominated Problems
22 Aug 2021 - 27 Aug 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
The development of high-performance simulation tools for real-life problems involving fluid flows and related transport phenomena frequently requires the use of numerical methods that are high-order accurate in space and time and preserve important physical properties of certain quantities of interest (such as nonnegativity of the water height in shallow water equation models). In recent years, the state of the art in the development of such schemes was significantly advanced by a breakthrough in theoretical analysis which has provided illuminating insights into the properties of existing methods and new design criteria for the development of improved solution strategies. However, many theoretical aspects of physics-aware discretization techniques still require further exploration or have not been put into practice so far. The purpose of this workshop is to bridge the gap between the mathematical theory and engineering practice.

Nonlinear Potential Theoretic Methods in Partial Differential Equations
05 Sep 2021 - 10 Sep 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Partial differential equations (PDE) are a rich and deep area of mathematics which is strongly motivated by problems arising in applied sciences and technology, such as physics, engineering, medicine. Most physical phenomena appearing in reality can indeed be modeled through PDE. Unfortunatley, explicit solutions to PDE can only be determined in very few special cases. On the other hand, it is often possible to describe some relevant qualitative and quantitative properties of theirs. This theoretical analysis enables, for instance, to develop effective numerical approximation methods for solutions. The workshop focuses on some fundamental aspects of the theory of PDE, including existence of solutions, their regularity and a priori estimates. Information on these issues allows for a deeper understanding of the structure of solutions and of the physical phenomena that they describe. They will be addressed in connection with some of the most advanced developments of the theory of PDE, that rely upon methods and results from Nonlinear Potential Theory, Harmonic Analysis, Geometric Analysis.

Random Growth Models and KPZ Universality
12 Sep 2021 - 17 Sep 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Irregular growth is a ubiquitous phenomenon in nature, from the growth of tumors, crystals, and bacterial colonies to the propagation of forest fires and the spread of water through a porous medium. Mathematical models of random growth have been a driving force in probability theory over the last sixty years and a rich source of important ideas. The analysis of random growth models began in the early 1960s with the introduction of the Eden model by Eden and first-passage percolation by Hammersley and Welsh. The field witnessed several breakthroughs in the 1980s and 1990s, from the introduction of more random growth models, including the Kardar, Parisi, and Zhang (KPZ) equation and the KPZ universality class, to the ground-breaking works of Tracy and Widom and of Baik, Deift, and Johansson, and the seminal works of Newman and coauthors. These results caused a flurry of activity and more analytical and geometrical tools were developed.

Integration of Model- and Data-Driven Methods for Medical Imaging
12 Sep 2021 - 17 Sep 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Recent remarkable advances in learning-based methods are revolutionizing the field of image analysis resulting in a paradigm shift towards data-driven approaches. These methods have already shown tremendous success in a wide range of applications from computer vision such as object detection and object category classifications. To perform efficiently though, such methods typically require a large number of training sample and this requirement is highly impractical or impossible in applications from medical imaging where it is very laborious and expensive to generate labeled data. Another drawback of learning-based method is that they do not come with provable performance guarantees. One remedy to such limitations is to combine data-driven methods with prior knowledge through mathematical and/or physical models in such a way to optimize processing, reconstruction and analysis of medical imaging data without the need of extensive training. This workshop will bring together researchers with a different background ranging from optimization, inverse problem, numerical and harmonic analysis and machine learning to advance state-of-the-art methods combining data- and model-driven approaches for medical imaging.

New Directions in Statistical Inference on Networks and Graphs
19 Sep 2021 - 24 Sep 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Advances in data collection and social media have led to network and graph data becoming available in many areas, including social sciences, biological sciences, and engineering. Understanding and modeling network structure, as well as conducting rigorous statistical inference to assess uncertainty, can provide crucial insights into the dynamics and interaction mechanisms of the system. Statistical network analysis to date has largely focused on the setting where a single network is observed as a noisy version of some underlying structure of interest. This setting in itself is challenging, requiring adaptation of existing statistical frameworks to networks and bridging the gap between theoretically optimal performance and computational feasibility. The workshop will start by covering recent advances in this setting.

Subfactors and vertex operator algebras are mathematical structures that at first glance appear very different, but both are used in the mathematical study of quantum field theory. In particular, vertex operator algebras are algebraic structures arising in two-dimensional conformal field theory (CFT), a quantum field theory with applications ranging from string theory to condensed matter physics to quantum computing. On the other hand, subfactors are closely related to conformal nets, which are a functional-analytic approach to CFT. Because they are both mathematical descriptions the same quantum field theory, the theories of vertex operator algebras and conformal nets are widely believed to be equivalent, but only in the last few years has there been substantial progress in establishing an equivalence. As many important results in conformal field theory have been established for either vertex operator algebras or conformal nets, but not necessarily both, developing connections and equivalences will be useful for answering open questions in both mathematical formulations of CFT.

Computations and Data in Algebraic Statistics
19 Sep 2021 - 24 Sep 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
This workshop brings together both theoreticians and practitioners from broadly different fields to advance algebraic statistical methodology to data science. While linear algebra underlies classical statistics, in algebraic statistics, the aim is to explore the applicability of nonlinear algebra---which extends algebraic theory beyond linear algebra---to statistical theory. In particular, our goal is to advance the computational feasibility of algebraic statistics. Our focus is specifically on direct applicability of algebraic statistical theory to real datasets. Additionally, this workshop explores other statistical settings that are also algebraic in nature and that find practical applications in various different fields, where nonlinear algebra may also be applied.

Connecting Network Structure to its Dynamics: Fantasy or Reality?
26 Sep 2021 - 01 Oct 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
A key challenge in biology and medicine is to understand how network of interacting genes gives rise to cellular behavior. Experimental limitations and the big data generated by 'omics technologies requires the development of quantitative approaches to overcome this challenge. In the context of mathematical models this challenge takes form of predicting complex dynamic behavior of gene and signaling networks inside cells. Construction of appropriate models is difficult due to large uncertainty in the state of the cell, the efficiency of its enzymes, and the form of interactions between genes.

Modeling and Computational Approaches to Individual and Collective Cell Movement in Complex Environments
26 Sep 2021 - 01 Oct 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Locomotion of cells, both individually and collectively, plays an important role in development, the immune response, wound healing, and cancer metastasis. Movement requires force transmission to the environment, and motile cells are robustly-designed nanomachines that often can cope with a variety of environmental conditions by altering the mode of force transmission – which ranges from crawling to swimming. The shape and integrity of a cell is determined by its cytoskeleton, and thus the shape changes that may be required to move involve controlled remodeling of the cytoskeleton. Motion in vivo is often in response to extracellular signals, which requires the ability to detect such signals and transduce them into the shape changes and force generation needed for movement. Thus the nanomachine is complex, and while much is known about individual components involved in movement, an integrated understanding of single cell motility, even in simple cells such as bacteria, is not at hand. At the next level, collective movement requires coordination of these nanomachines, which introduces another level of complexity. This complexity has stimulated mathematical modelling and computational simulations of cell and tissue movement at various levels, which has advanced our understanding of movement on multiple time and space scales.

International Conference in Probability and Statistics in Celebration of the 80th Birthday of Gérard Letac
27 Sep 2021 - 01 Oct 2021 • The Fields Institute –Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
This conference will be held to celebrate the 80th birthday of French probabilist Gérard Letac on January 6, 2020. Continuously active and publishing since his first paper appeared in 1964, Letac is now Professor Emeritus at the Institut de Mathématiques de Toulouse, Laboratoire de Statistique et Probabilités of the Université Paul Sabatier. He has authored five books and directed twenty-six PhD students.

Letac’s work in the areas of probability theory, mathematical statistics, measure theory and analysis is well recognized by both the mathematical and statistical communities. His papers have had substantial impact on many probabilists and statisticians. In his talks, Letac often reveals surprising connections and elegant structures underlying problems that are either complex or deceptively innocent looking. Due to his breadth of expertise, he also often uncovers a deep algebraic structure behind probability problems. Former students and colleagues will celebrate Gérard Letac's work during this conference and we hope that the breadth as well as depth of his work will inspire the upcoming generation of young researchers.

The conference includes daily tutorial lectures accessible to graduate students.

Abstract:
In this workshop, we want to bring together researchers from both sides of this development: those mathematicians specializing in the application of modern algebraic and algebro-geometric methods to the study of algebraic groups and their torsors, as well as those working on relevant aspects of the motivic and cohomological approaches from a more abstract viewpoint. We hope that bringing this mix of researchers together will have a synergistic impact, leading to concrete new applications of the abstract machinery to outstanding problems on quadratic forms, algebras with involution and algebraic groups, but also inspiring progress on the general development of the motivic and cohomological methods.

Workshop I: Computational Challenges in Multi-Messenger Astrophysics
04 Oct 2021 - 08 Oct 2021 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
IPAM - Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics, an NSF Math Institute at UCLA
Abstract:
Computational relativistic astrophysics and numerical relativity face a number of challenges following the first detection of binary black holes and binary neutron stars: high Lorentz factors, strong and dynamical gravitational fields, uncertain equations of state, magnetic fields, radiative and dissipative effects, large dynamical ranges, solutions of constrained hyperbolic systems. The likely gravitational signals produced after the collapse of massive stellar cores offer unique probes of the dynamics of newly-born compact stellar remnants. Predicting source dynamics of future detections of gravitational wave signals is important to understand the physics of these events in the current and next-generation earth-based gravitational-wave detectors and essential to achieve design sensitivity in future space-based detectors. The goal of this workshop is to bring together mathematical modelers in general relativity, astrophysicists, and experts in numerical relativity to discuss open issues to improve current approaches to build increasingly more accurate gravitational wave templates that allow to identify future detections.

Mathematics of the Cell: Integrating Signaling, Transport and Mechanics
17 Oct 2021 - 22 Oct 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
An aspiration of modern cell biology is to 1) understand how the various cellular components assemble into a cell and 2) understand how cell function arises from the interaction of those components. How do cells form with a specific shape and size? How do they divide and how do cells decide where to divide? How does transport occur in the crowded cellular environment inside a cell? Mathematics has a role in helping answer such questions. Understanding of these phenomena also presents the opportunity to discover new deep mathematical concepts, particularly because it involves chemistry and physics acting across length-scales, from molecules to cells and tissues. BIRS has played a foundational role in the development of what has become known as Mathematical Biology of the Cell, by hosting regular workshops that have helped reveal principles behind how cellular components assemble and organize themselves to form discrete structures, distinct cellular compartments, and form patterns. The underlying goal of this meeting of interdisciplinary and diverse scientists is to understand the fundamental principles connecting cell signaling, geometry, transport, and mechanics.

Abstract:
Convex geometry and partial differential equations are two important mathematical branches. A constantly growing interaction between them in the last decades has resulted in significant progress in both areas. The goal is to solve questions in analysis, by combining the (affine) geometry of convex bodies and methods from partial differential equations, in particular, Monge-Ampere type equations. First major results include affine inequalities that are stronger than their Euclidean counterparts. Applications appear in information theory, probability theory and stochastic geometry.

Real Polynomials: Counting and Stability
17 Oct 2021 - 22 Oct 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Understanding the real solutions of polynomials or systems of polynomial equations is at the heart of many problems both in the realm of pure mathematics and in the mathematical modeling of networks in systems biology, in computer aided geometric design, or in the control of mechanisms. While there exist a lot of celebrated results (for example, bounds exploiting the signs of the coefficients of a univariate polynomial or bounds taking into account the number of terms), even some basic questions are still unsolved. There has been a recent explosion of activity in this area, where different tools have started to be connected in new and unexpected ways, such as tools from the theory of matroids, from fewnomial theory, or from convex algebraic geometry. This workshop will bring together experts from close but different areas in real algebraic geometry to collaborate and will lead to further progress (both theoretical and practical) on a number of problems on the real solutions of polynomials. Specific consideration is given on the problem of counting and bounding the number of real roots as well as on questions of stability.

Gravitational Emergence in AdS/CFT
24 Oct 2021 - 29 Oct 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
An outstanding problem of modern physics is the reconciliation of the two most successful broad theories of physics: general relativity, which describes the gravitational force exerted by massive objects in terms of the bending and rippling of spacetime, and quantum mechanics, which describes the behavior of matter on the minute scales of subatomic particles such as electrons. While both theories are remarkably successful independently, they appear to give contradictory predictions of phenomena that involve gravity at the small scales at which quantum mechanics is relevant. Such phenomena include the Big Bang, when the universe was small enough to be described by quantum mechanics and sufficiently dense to also require a gravitational description; also the process of the final stages of the death of a large star, when a black hole is formed and the star’s matter is concentrated in an extremely small volume. A proper description of these phenomena requires a unified theory of quantum gravity.

Mathematical Methods in Cancer Biology, Evolution and Therapy

Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Present day biology generates a wealth of data from which tumor biology and tumor evolution can be inferred, and therapeutic strategies can be developed. Most clinical (and research) samples are comprised of a mixture of different cells, including multiple different populations of cancer cells (‘subclones’) and a variety of normal cell types. Effective use of these data thus requires data from individual cell types to be deconvolved. A number of subfields are independently developing mathematical and statistical deconvolution techniques. While at first glance these subfields are largely disparate, there are clear opportunities for synergies to be developed. This workshop will fill this gap by bringing together researchers from several of these fragmented subfields across a wide range of backgrounds (computational biology, mathematics, statistics, computer science, biomedicine, etc.) to provide a synergistic forum for cross-disciplinary learning, discussion and collaboration.

Workshop II: Mathematical and Numerical Aspects of Gravitation
25 Oct 2021 - 29 Oct 2021 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
IPAM - Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics, an NSF Math Institute at UCLA
Abstract:
Ever since general relativity’s birth in 1915, mathematics has had a profound impact on the way the theory has been understood: Examples over the years include Hilbert’s variational formulation, Noether’s early theorems on conservation laws, Choquet-Bruhat’s foundational well-posedness theorem and the hyperbolicity of the equations, Bondi’s concept of null infinity and gravitational waves, the incompleteness theorems of Penrose and the black hole concept, the positive energy theorem of Schoen and Yau, and the nonlinear stability of Minkowski space proven by Christodoulou and Klainerman. In more recent years, the power of numerics has added additional insights to our mathematical picture, particularly after Pretorius’s 2004 breakthrough allowing for the numerical simulation of binary black hole systems. Today, research on mathematical and numerical aspects of general relativity constitute two vibrant fields which have become very influential in the wider mathematics and physics communities. The two fields have many points of contact: Some common goals shared by both rigorous mathematical analysis and numerics include understanding the formation of black holes in gravitational collapse, their non-linear stability, and their interaction with other black holes in binary systems or other scattering processes. In their practical application to astrophysics, the two fields often play complementary roles: Numerics generates the templates which play an important part in interpreting gravitational wave detections by LIGO and VIRGO, while rigorous mathematical analysis has introduced subtle new concepts, like Christodoulou memory, which may play an important role in the next generation of detectors. Another common goal of both rigorous mathematics and of numerics, of interest to theoretical physics, is to understand generic spacetime singularities, so as to resolve in particular the celebrated weak and strong cosmic censorship conjectures of Penrose. As singularities probe the limits of the theory, a resolution of these conjectures may shed light on various attempts to transcend general relativity. Other recent problems which have brought together mathematics and numerics include work on asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetimes, and well-posedness for alternative theories of gravity, both of interest in high energy physics. There is also recent activity on inverse problems. This workshop will gather mathematicians, theoretical physicists and numerical analysis developers to discuss these and other issues.

Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Nonlinear inverse problems are ubiquitous in medical sciences, engineering, physics and other natural sciences. This workshop will advance a statistical paradigm that allows underpinning statistical decision making in such problems in a scientifically rigorous way. This will be achieved by providing `frequentist' large sample guarantees for inferences arising from commonly used (Bayesian or non-Bayesian) algorithms in such problems. Thereby, a large cluster of applied problems, where algorithms are used for day-to-day decision making with statistical data, will be put on a solid and robust foundation, facilitating its confident use in modern society.

Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Stability theory, in the sense of mathematical logic, consists of a collection of technical methods first developed to address the logical problem of classifying abstract models of mathematical theories. Stability theory has proven to be applicable to other mathematical problems such as understanding rational solutions of algebraic equations. It has recently been shown that the techniques and methods used for the classification described above can be used in much more general settings with applications to other areas of mathematics such as algebraic geometry, additive combinatorics and extremal graph theory. Researchers at this meeting will study these developments to deepen these applications, and to extend the scope of stability theory to an even wider range of mathematical theories.

Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
The information that determines our genetic make-up – from our eye color to our propensity to get cancer or genetic diseases – is encoded in the DNA sequence of our genomes. This DNA information is interpreted by proteins called transcription factors that ‘read’ the four-letter code in our DNA, promoting the activation or repression of genetic programs. Unfortunately, we have been unable to decipher the non-protein-coding portion of our genomes, which comprises >95% of our DNA, even though we now have access to thousands of fully sequenced human genomes and the numbers are increasing daily. A fundamental problem of modern biology will be how to discern DNA differences between people that affect our physical differences and the manifestation of disease. As a result, a major challenge facing computational and structural biologists is to crack the DNA code that will allow us to understand the impact of DNA differences on protein-DNA interactions and gene expression. The solution to this challenge will likely come from the convergence of theoretical, computational, biophysical, and structural approaches. The BIRS format is ideal for bringing together this combination of scientists in an informal and collaborative setting to further advance this goal.

The Functoriality conjectures, formulated by Langlands in 1967, have been a driving force behind much of the work in both Number theory and Representation theory in the last 50 years. This workshop will explore a relatively new approach to the conjectures stemming from Langlands' recent proposal called ``Beyond Endoscopy''. This proposal has since blossomed in the work of many mathematicians and has produced very interesting recent results in several areas of mathematics from algebraic geometry through representation theory to analytic number theory.

Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Gravitational-waves are a new way to explore the sky and uncover the Universe’s deepest mysteries. Although the first detection of these "ripples of space-time" is only a few years old, scientists can now harness the potential of gravitational waves in testing Einstein’s General Relativity theory under extreme conditions, helping to understand the origin of matter, and measuring the evolution of the Universe. Researchers from all around the world are gathering in Oaxaca to discuss recent progress in, and the future of gravitational-wave science. The workshop "Detection and analysis of gravitational waves in the era of multi-messenger astronomy: From mathematical modelling to machine learning", provides a forum, unique in its genre, for discussing new mathematical methods in modelling, detecting, and analyzing gravitational waves, as well as their integration with machine learning, or artificial intelligence.

Workshop III: Source Inference and Parameter Estimation in Gravitational Wave Astronomy
15 Nov 2021 - 19 Nov 2021 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
IPAM - Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics, an NSF Math Institute at UCLA
Abstract:
Gravitational-wave (GW) observations offer a unique opportunity to study astrophysical and cosmological sources that are difficult to access through electromagnetic observations. Inferring the sources’ properties from their GW signal is one of the key objectives of GW data analysis. The planned improvements in the sensitivity of the ground-based detectors and future space-based observatories, however, bring unique computational and mathematical challenges to the inference problem including long-duration signals, high signal-to-noise ratios, increased parameter dimensionality and overlapping signals. These challenges must be overcome to fully exploit the scientific potential of GW observations. The goal of this workshop is to connect statisticians, computer scientists and GW astrophysicists to discuss the current state-of-the-art approaches to parameter estimation in GW astrophysics, and to identify the open issues to enable fast and reliable inference for different GW sources, including modelled and un-modelled signals, for the current and planned GW observatories.

Abstract:
Graphs are the standard mathematical model of many real-world entities: computer networks, road and highway networks, drainage systems, river networks, electrical networks, and so on. In some cases, these highly-complicated graphs are contained in the product of two or more much simpler graphs. In a recent breakthrough, it was shown that this is the case for planar or near-planar graphs like those that model river, road, and highway networks; any such graph is contained in the product of a simple tree-like graph and a path. This product structure gives deep insight into these graphs and their properties, allowing a host of mathematical and algorithmic tools to be applied to these graphs. The goal of this workshop is to continue the search for product structure in more general classes of graphs as well as to find new methods to exploit such product structure mathematically and algorithmically, when it is present.

Foundations of Objective Bayesian Methodology
28 Nov 2021 - 03 Dec 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on objective Bayesian methodology, nonparametric Bayesian methods and machine learning. Objective Bayesian methods are evolving from a historically narrower focus on issues related to prior specification to research themes that are more broadly related to default methods in Bayesian statistical analysis. This naturally leads to an increasing overlap with Bayesian nonparametric modeling and machine learning. The workshop seeks to exploit this increasing intersection by bringing together participants from all three research communities.

Workshop IV: Big Data in Multi-Messenger Astrophysics
29 Nov 2021 - 03 Dec 2021 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
IPAM - Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics, an NSF Math Institute at UCLA
Abstract:
Detection of gravitational waves requires the operation of very sophisticated detectors producing large amounts of data. The sensitivity of the gravitational-wave detectors to astrophysical signals is limited by the noise associated with the instruments themselves and their environment. Invaluable astrophysical information is buried in data sets that may be too large or complex to be analyzed with traditional data-processing techniques. To make the analysis of gravitational-wave detector data more efficient it becomes increasingly more important to characterize and mitigate the detector noise sources, as well as find more powerful ways to extract information from the detector data. Methods for the analysis of gravitational-wave detector data range from standard signal processing algorithms to novel machine learning algorithms. This workshop will focus on the development of these techniques for a more efficient handling of gravitational-wave data sets, reduction of detector noise, identification of astrophysical signals and increase in detection confidence. It will bring together astrophysicists, mathematicians and statisticians working on the state-of-the-art data analysis.

Workshop I: Multiscale Approaches in Quantum Mechanics
28 Mar 2022 - 01 Apr 2022 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
IPAM - Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics, an NSF Math Institute at UCLA
Abstract:
This workshop will set the stage and define research directions for the rest of the program. The idea is to achieve a healthy mix between researchers developing quantum theories and methods on different spatial and temporal scales, providing a forum to discuss the advances in multiscale modeling in quantum mechanics and pave the way to stronger coupling between existing methods and completely novel quantum approaches. The main question is how to integrate already existing quantum methods to reduce their weaknesses, improve their applicability, and enable quantum calculations on much larger scales? For example, electronic orbitals obtained from density-functional theory calculations are being increasingly used to compute correlation energies using many-body Green’s function theories and explicitly correlated methods. Such synergies provide a way to approach the exact solution of the Schroedinger equation, in addition to significantly accelerating the cost of explicit many-body calculations. On a much larger spatial scales, multiscale coupling of approximate many body Hamiltonians with Maxwell’s equations allows to unify microscopic and continuum treatments of van der Waals and Casimir interactions, eventually making it possible to push the boundaries of such calculations to macroscopic systems.

Workshop II: Model Reduction in Quantum Mechanics
11 Apr 2022 - 15 Apr 2022 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
IPAM - Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics, an NSF Math Institute at UCLA
Abstract:
The first one is the rigorous mathematical derivation of reduced models from reference quantum models in some regimes such as the semiclassical limit, adiabatic limit, thermodynamic limit, and high/low density limit. New approaches have been developed in the past two decades, which lead to successful mathematical derivations of reduced models in a number of settings. However, in many settings the mathematical relations between reference and reduced models and the domain of validity of the latter still have to be clarified. The second aspect is concerned with effective interactions. Interactions between elementary particles typically have very simple functional form such as the Coulomb potential between two charged particles. However, upon solving the many-particle quantum mechanical equations, complex and intricate interactions emerge. The understanding and systematization of such interactions between composite objects provides a pathway to better understand quantum mechanics itself and constitutes the basis for developing coarse-grained approaches to describe interactions in large quantum systems. The third aspect is about simplified quasiparticle or collective mode descriptions of complicated quantum states, using one-particle spin-orbitals, plasmons, phonons, polarons, or excitons. Such objects are embedded in finite or infinite dimensional Hilbert spaces defined by the basis set utilized to expand the many-body wavefunction. Recently, many interesting efforts have been dedicated to analyzing and visualizing quantum states in Hilbert spaces, as well as to map and embed Hilbert spaces between different quantum systems. Such mapping and embedding of Hilbert spaces brings out novel insights into the intricate nature of quantum fluctuations and should ultimately allow to develop better and more reliable approximations for solving complex quantum systems.

Workshop III: Large-Scale Certified Numerical Methods in Quantum Mechanics
02 May 2022 - 06 May 2022 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
IPAM - Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics, an NSF Math Institute at UCLA
Abstract:
Simulating very large quantum systems require new numerical methods and algorithms. Such simulations indeed lead to solving linear and nonlinear systems of equations and eigenvalue problems, that are characterized by high dimensionality, large ranks (for tensor problems), and extreme scale. They must exploit massive parallelism in both space and time and rank-reduction methods, through deterministic or stochastic approaches, optimized data structures, and minimize communication. It is also key to have tools at hands to assess the quality of the simulation results. Error analysis is of major relevance in the simulation of quantum systems, but to date, it has received less attention than in other fields such as fluid or structure dynamics. The error between the exact and computed values of a given physical quantity of interest (QOI), e.g. the dissociation energy of a molecule, has several origins: a model error (resulting from the choice of a computationally tractable, but not extremely accurate, model, e.g. Kohn-Sham with B3LYP functional), a discretization error (resulting from the choice of a finite basis set), an algorithmic error (due to the choice of stopping criteria in Self-Consistent Field and other iterative algorithms), an implementation error (due to possible bugs or uncontrolled round-off errors), a computing error (due to random hardware failures). Quantifying these different sources of errors is key for two reasons. First, guaranteed estimates on these five components of the error would allow one to supplement the computed value of the QOI returned by the numerical simulation with guaranteed error bars (certification of the result). Second, this would allow one to choose the parameters of the simulation (approximate model, discretization parameters, algorithm and stopping criteria, data structures?) in an optimal way in order to minimize the computational effort required to reach the target accuracy (error balancing). Since molecular simulation consumes a massive amount of CPU time in scientific research centers worldwide, this would have a major impact on the use of scientific computing resources.

Workshop IV: Monte Carlo and Machine Learning Approaches in Quantum Mechanics
23 May 2022 - 27 May 2022 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
IPAM - Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics, an NSF Math Institute at UCLA
Abstract:
Quantum mechanics has strong connections with probability theory and statistics. Quantum states are amenable to probabilistic interpretation based on laws of statistics. Many quantum problems can be reformulated in terms of Feynman’s path integral formulation, which amounts to computing quantum partition functions using statistical sampling techniques. In addition, new statistical learning approaches are emerging that aim to incorporate “quantumness” to ensure unitarity and long-range correlations that are so ubiquitous in quantum systems. Considering these recent developments, it appears timely to bring together the large community of people working on quantum systems and statistical techniques. This workshop will broadly address the reaches and limitations of statistics as applied to the modeling and understanding of quantum systems and highlight examples where quantum and statistical models enhance each other.
