Sums of Squares Method in Geometry, Combinatorics and Optimization
13 Jul 2020 - 24 Jul 2020 • Berkeley, California, United States
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
The study of nonnegative polynomials and sums of squares is a classical area of real algebraic geometry dating back to Hilbert's 17th problem. It also has rich connections to real analysis via duality and moment problems. In the last 15 years, sums of squares relaxations have found a wide array of applications from very applied areas (e.g., robotics, computer vision, and machine learning) to theoretical applications (e.g., extremal combinatorics, theoretical computer science).

IIS2020 — 11th ITER International School: The Impact and Consequences of Energetic Particles on Fusion Plasmas
20 Jul 2020 - 24 Jul 2020 • Aix-en-Provence, France
Aix-Marseille University in Aix-en-Provence at the Institut de Management Public Et Gouvernance Territoriale (IMPGT)
The subject of this year’s school is “The Impact and Consequences of Energetic Particles on Fusion Plasmas”.

The ITER International School aims to prepare young scientists and engineers for working in the field of nuclear fusion and in research applications associated with the ITER Project. The adoption of a “school format” was a consequence of the need to prepare future scientists and engineers on a range of different subjects and to provide them with a wide overview of the interdisciplinary skills required by the ITER project.
