Tensor Methods and Emerging Applications to the Physical and Data Sciences
08 Mar 2021 - 11 Jun 2021 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
UCLA / Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM)
Abstract:
Linear algebra is an essential tool in mathematics, science, and engineering, as almost all natural processes are linear in small increments. The most natural generalization of linear algebra is multilinear algebra where matrices are replaced by tensors. While exciting results have emerged from various research communities, there has not been much exchange and collaboration between theoreticians and developers of practical algorithms. The aim of this long term program is to bring together experts and junior participants from different fields and experiences, to exchange ideas, tackle challenges, collaborate, and advances the general field of tensor methods. We foresee this program to be a milestone platform for the future development of the research area and to have a long standing impact.

Workshop II: Tensor Network States and Applications
19 Apr 2021 - 23 Apr 2021 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
UCLA / Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM)
Abstract:
Due to their high complexity, our understanding of strongly correlated quantum many-body systems is still limited. This concerns, for example, both static and dynamical equilibrium properties of fermionic systems and quantum magnets in condensed matter physics, as well as complex molecules with strong entanglement in quantum chemistry. Other big challenges are the analysis of non-equilibrium dynamics of closed systems, systems interacting with an environment, and transport problems. Tensor network states such as MPS, TTN, PEPS, and MERA are designed to capture the structure of entanglement in quantum systems in compressed representations. They are also particularly well-suited for the study of topological ordered phases of matter which cannot be described within the framework of spontaneous symmetry breaking. A better mathematical understanding of approximate tensor network representations is emerging for cycle-free networks like MPS and TTN.

TMWS3 — Workshop III: Mathematical Foundations and Algorithms for Tensor Computations
03 May 2021 - 07 May 2021 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
UCLA / Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM)
Abstract:
This workshop aims to bring together researchers with different expertise to exchange ideas on designing computational methods for various tensor problems. One of the main features will be a focus on rigorous algorithms for which one may guarantee convergence to a global solution under reasonable conditions. Topics will include provable algorithmic guarantees in terms of computational efficiency and robustness, algorithmic techniques like spectral methods, iterative methods for nonconvex optimization, and powerful convex relaxation hierarchies like sum-of-squares, etc, where correctness guarantees may be established under suitable assumptions motivated by applications. A secondary goal is to better delineate and understand the boundary separating the possible from the impossible in tensor computations — computational tractability vs intractability, existence/uniqueness vs nonexistence/nonuniqueness of solutions, tameness vs wildness, etc.

Topological Insights in Neuroscience
03 May 2021 - 07 May 2021 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The talks in this workshop will present a wide array of current applications of topology in neuroscience, including classification and synthesis of neuron morphologies, analysis of synaptic plasticity, algebraic analysis of the neural code, topological analysis of neural networks and their dynamics, topological decoding of neural activity, diagnosis of traumatic brain injuries, and topological biomarkers for psychiatric disease. Some of the talks will be devoted to promising new directions in algebraic topology that have been inspired by neuroscience.

Workshop IV: Efficient Tensor Representations for Learning and Computational Complexity
17 May 2021 - 21 May 2021 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
UCLA / Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM)
Abstract:
The first emphasis of this workshop will be on the theory of recovering efficient tensor representations from empirical data, as studied e.g. in the context of low-rank tensor completion or matrix-product state learning. We will focus both on algorithmic and on statistical aspects. The second emphasis of the workshop will be on applications of efficient tensor representations to theoretical computer science, particularly computational complexity theory. A closely related area that will also be covered is the resource theory of tensors in quantum information theory.

Summer Graduate School — Mathematics of Big Data: Sketching and (Multi-) Linear Algebra
21 Jun 2021 - 02 Jul 2021 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
MRSI – Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley
Abstract:
This summer school will introduce graduate students to sketching-based approaches to computational linear and multi-linear algebra. Sketching here refers to a set of techniques for compressing a matrix, to one with fewer rows, or columns, or entries, usually via various kinds of random linear maps. We will discuss matrix computations, tensor algebras, and such sketching techniques, together with their applications and analysis.

ACDA21 — SIAM Conference on Applied and Computational Discrete Algorithms
19 Jul 2021 - 21 Jul 2021 • Washington, United States
Organizer:
Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM)
Abstract:
This Conference is an outgrowth of the new SIAM Activity Group on ACDA, founded last year, which aims to create a professional home for the broad, dispersed community of researchers working on applications of discrete mathematics. In particular, we want to foster a rich interplay between concrete applications and theoretical advancement/algorithm development for combinatorial problems. As such, we would like the ACDA conference to be an attractive meeting for researchers working on applied discrete math within many communities – including combinatorial scientific computing, discrete computational biology, theoretical computer science, network science, combinatorial optimization, algorithm engineering, parallel algorithms and more.

Machine Learning for Climate
01 Nov 2021 - 04 Nov 2021 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The theoretical understanding of the Earth system has fundamentally advanced in recent decades in parallel to an exponential increase of observations and modeling data. However, climate scientists cannot meet the challenge of informing society about changes that may occur in the future at regional and local scales because many two-way, multi-scale processes that encompass the physical chemical and biological realms continue to elude us. Big data and the associated algorithms (Machine Learning) provide the opportunity to learn about quantities related to the climate systems in ways and with an amount of detail that were infeasible only a few years ago. The opportunity for descriptive inference creates the chance for climate scientists to ask causal questions and create new theories or validate old ones. Furthermore, when paired with modeling experiments or robust research in model parameterizations, “big data” can provide data-driven answers to vexing questions.

This conference will set the stage for exchanging tools and ideas and will help identify key problems where consistent progress is achievable through collaborative efforts. The theme of the conference will extend more broadly than the Physics focus of the main program, in order to elicit input from a wide range of experts across the earth system and computational sciences who are involved in the climate change problem. Given the level of interdisciplinarity and exchange that we aim for and expect, this conference will summarize current understanding and open questions, and will set the stage for achieving the aims of the associated KITP program.

The focus of WSC 2021 is on the design and innovation of smart cities through the use of simulation. Smart devices and sensors offer us an amazing opportunity to create our urban future where cities are safe, environmentally secure, green, and efficient and power, water, transportation work seamlessly towards this goal. This vision relies on significant advancement from simulation both in theory and practice as modelling, experimentation and data analysis needs to come together to tackle various challenges. We invite papers that highlight innovations in both simulation theory and applications, with a specific interest in the use of simulation in smart cities design, implementation, development and vision.
