Focussed Research Groups at BIRS — Studying PDE Dynamics via Optimization with Integral Inequality Constraints
26. Jul 2020 - 02. Aug 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Kanada
Veranstalter:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Zusammenfassung:
Partial differential equations arise ubiquitously as laws of physics and other mathematical models across the scientific and engineering disciplines. The solutions to these equations describe the behavior of the systems modeled by the equations, but very often the solutions are too complicated to be found exactly. As an example from one of many disciplines, equations governing the flow of liquids or gases can be simple to write down, but solutions corresponding to extremely intricate turbulent motions of the fluids are impossible to find. One approach in such cases is to use powerful computers to approximate single solutions. A second complementary approach is to seek mathematical statements that give only partial information about solutions but that apply broadly to all possible solutions. This Focused Research Group aims to improve and apply methods that take the latter approach. This will be done by using recently developed tools from the field of optimization to solve research questions in the field of partial differential equations. This requires bringing together researchers in both of these largely separate mathematical disciplines, which is made possible by the BIRS Focused Research Group program.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Interfacial Phenomena in Reaction-Diffusion Systems
02. Aug 2020 - 07. Aug 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Kanada
Zusammenfassung:
Interfacial phenomena are observed in many fields of sciences, such as chemistry, physics, biology and medicine. Examples include formation and motion of phase boundaries in multi-phase materials, propagation of population waves in ecology, and so on. This workshop focuses, among other things, on interfacial phenomena in complex environments, such as those in spatially and/or temporally heterogeneous media, those in random environments, and those in the presence of obstacles. We also focus on interfacial phenomena in biology and those related to geometry. We aim at developing new mathematical framework to deepen our understanding of those complex interfacial phenomena.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Causal Inference with Big Data
16. Aug 2020 - 21. Aug 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Kanada
Zusammenfassung:
Causal inference is a central pillar of many scientific disciplines. Motivated by applications in different scientific fields, there has been tremendous progress in causal inference in the last twenty years. At the same time, the era of big data has presented the field with massive, heterogeneous and complex data sets, posing further challenges. It is therefore crucial and timely to bring together the researchers from both ends, in order to share recent advances, to identify pressing problems, to spark productive collaborations, and to ultimately advance the state of the art by developing new theory and methods for causal inference with big data.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Biological Active Porous Materials: Modeling, Simulation and Experimentation
04. Okt 2020 - 09. Okt 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Kanada
Zusammenfassung:
One of the key technologies emerging in the 21st century is that of advanced materials, which offer the opportunity to change our lives in many ways, from improving energy efficiency through enabling new biomedical treatments and devices. In order to harness these materials, though, significant progress is needed in developing our understanding of how they work and interact, across scales ranging from those of atoms and molecules through the full size of devices constructed from them. Across the fields of experimentalists, materials scientists, and computational scientists focusing on active biological tissue, significant research is now underway in understanding the properties of both natural and engineered materials across these scales. This workshop brings together experts with distinct views on these materials and devices, aiming to seed the cross-disciplinary research needed to realize their potential to gain new knowledge on active biological materials and to best exploit it. We will bring together a diverse group of world-leading researchers focusing on discussions on the advances currently being made and the collaborations needed to fully unlock the transformative power of advanced materials by using biological active materials as role models.

Driving Global Inference for New Physics with Machine Learning, Big Data and Large-scale Statistical Simulation
24. Jan 2021 - 29. Jan 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Kanada
Veranstalter:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Zusammenfassung:
The physical sciences have entered the era of big data, and particle physics is no exception. Extremely powerful particle colliders, telescopes observing light across the energy spectrum, and precise underground experiments have been running for years and have produced remarkably detailed and complex data sets. While no definitive signal of new physics has yet emerged from these experiments, it is quite possible that hints of new phenomena are hidden in these results, only missed due to the limitations of our analysis methods. In this workshop, we will bring together statisticians and physicists to discuss novel methods of data analysis, with a focus on machine learning, in which computers are programmed to think in ways akin to humans. We will launch the development of new computer tools that will allow us to overcome current computational limitations and fully test particle physics theories against all available data, potentially leading to discoveries that will shed light on some of the most profound questions in physics.

Geometry, Topology and their Applications in Control System Design
21. Feb 2021 - 26. Feb 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Kanada
Veranstalter:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Zusammenfassung:
This workshop will have a special focus on control theory and control systems. Control theory deals with the problem of shaping the behavior of ``systems,'' where a system can be an engineered object, such as a robot or a train, or a natural one, such as a flock of birds or even the brain. The basic driving questions are how to actuate, and how to design, the system to get it to perform as desired. Due to the wide variety of physical systems that control theory handles, the use of more abstract mathematical tools is very well suited to this field, and has already proven useful many instances, such as the study of system stability or optimal design of control system.

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, Kanada
Veranstalter:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Zusammenfassung:
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.

Entropic Regularization of Optimal Transport and Applications
20. Jun 2021 - 25. Jun 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Kanada
Veranstalter:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Zusammenfassung:
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.
