Workshop on the Applications of Quantum Formalism to Behavioural Economics
25. Mai 2021 - 28. Mai 2021 • The Fields Institute – online, Kanada
Veranstalter:
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
Zusammenfassung:
The application of quantum mechanics to the social sciences has led to useful insights, especially in the areas of experimental decision-making and behavioral economics. A few years ago, the Fields Institute hosted a workshop on this topic entitled ‘Quantum Probability and the Mathematical Modelling of Decision Making’. In this forthcoming workshop we ask ourselves a fundamental question: what is the key tenet, which rationalizes why quantum theory in social science and especially in social choice and decision-making can be used? This is a central question which has not been previously answered. The concept of ‘unicity’ essentially indicates that a single framework can describe all observed events. However, in decision-making there is no reason to believe there is only one framework, which can capture all events. It was recently discovered that the impossibility of finding a single framework to describe all observed events is the same as the paradox of social choice. Hence, the close connection between economics and quantum theory and this workshop will bring together experts from physics, social sciences and different backgrounds to address this close connection.

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.

2021 Canadian Undergraduate Mathematics Conference
07. Jul 2021 - 11. Jul 2021 • Western University, Kanada
Veranstalter:
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
Zusammenfassung:
The Canadian Undergraduate Mathematics Conference (CUMC) is a national conference organized each summer by undergraduate students for undergraduate students at different institutions across Canada. The CUMC is an opportunity for students to explore mathematics outside their usual surroundings and spark their interest in areas they have not yet been exposed to. Indeed, the core of the gathering consists of a series of talks given by participants. T
