Michigan Cosmology Summer School
01 jui 2020 - 05 jui 2020 • Ann Arbor, États-Unis
Organisateur:
University of Michigan
Résumé:
The week-long school will focus on computational and theoretical large-scale structure, while allowing in-depth exploration of how current research tests theory with data. The school will be hands-on and partly computational, so that the participants acquire concrete practical skills in modeling data (and theory). Each lecturer will deliver ~4-5 hrs of lectures; some of that time may be devoted to numerical exercises/calculations. Confirmed lecturers include Ami Choi (Ohio State), Tim Eifler (Arizona), Tesla Jeltema (Santa Cruz), Adrian Liu (McGill), Will Percival (Waterloo), Mark Vogelsberger (MIT), and Joe Zuntz (Edinburgh).

22nd National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering
13 jui 2020 - 27 jui 2020 • Argonne and Oak Ridge, États-Unis
Organisateur:
Argonne and Oak Ridge National Labs
Résumé:
The NXSchool is designed to introduce students to the capabilities available at U.S. neutron and x-ray user facilities and pays for students’ travel, meals and lodging costs. Lectures, presented by researchers from academia, industry, and national laboratories, include basic tutorials on the principles of neutron and x-ray scattering theory, the characteristics of neutron and synchrotron sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods to a variety of scientific subjects. As part of the school, students also conduct a series of short experiments to obtain some hands-on experience using instruments at neutron and synchrotron sources, both at Oak Ridge's Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor facilities (1st week) and at Argonne's Advanced Photon Source (2nd week).

Algebraic Theory of Differential and Difference Equations, Model Theory and their Applications
15 jui 2020 - 26 jui 2020 • Berkeley, Californie, États-Unis
Organisateur:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Résumé:
The purpose of the summer school will be to introduce graduate students to effective methods in algebraic theories of differential and difference equations with emphasis on their model-theoretic foundations and to demonstrate recent applications of these techniques to studying dynamic models arising in sciences. While these topics comprise a coherent and rich subject, they appear in graduate coursework in at best a piecemeal way, and then only as components of classes for other aims. With this Summer Graduate School, students will learn both the theoretical basis of differential and difference algebra and how to use these methods to solve practical problems. Beyond the lectures, the graduate students will meet daily in problem sessions and will participate in one-on-one mentoring sessions with the lecturers and organizers.

Graduate Summer School: Mathematics of Topological Phases of Matter
22 jui 2020 - 26 jui 2020 • Los Angeles, CA, États-Unis
Résumé:
The application of topology to physics has become an integral part of a second quantum revolution in the sciences. The discovery of topological insulators and progress towards topological superconductors realizing non-abelian statistics has moved topological phases of matter onto the center stage in the interaction of topology and physics beyond the quantum Hall effect. While topological physics has been intensively investigated by physicists for the last few decades, the mathematical theory lags far behind. One challenge is formulating the right definition of topological phases of matter, which is closely related to the notoriously difficult problem of finding a rigorous mathematical formulation of quantum field theory. In this summer school, we will focus on two relatively mature foundational topics, and two new directions in the mathematics of topological phases of matter.

Random Graphs
29 jui 2020 - 10 jul 2020 • Berkeley, Californie, États-Unis
Organisateur:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Résumé:
The topic of random graphs is at the forefront of applied probability, and it is one of the central topics in multidisciplinary science where mathematical ideas are used to model and understand the real world. At the same time, random graphs pose challenging mathematical problems that have attracted the attention from probabilists and combinatorialists since the 1960, with the pioneering work of Erd\"{o}s and R?nyi. Around the turn of the millennium, very large data sets started to become available, and several applied disciplines started to realize that many real-world networks, even though they are from various different origins, share many fascinating features.

PennSummer — Experimental Physics Research Academy
05 jul 2020 - 25 jul 2020 • Philadelphia, PA, États-Unis
Organisateur:
College of Liberal and Professional Studies | University of Pennsylvania
Résumé:
The Experimental Physics Academy focuses on modern physics, specifically mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum dynamics and astrophysics, with an aim to provide hands-on experience and laboratory work within Penn’s vast research facilities. With time to experiment with advanced hardware and settings, students move past memorized equations to gain an understanding of cause and effect, and ultimately an appreciation of physics on a higher level.

Sums of Squares Method in Geometry, Combinatorics and Optimization
13 jul 2020 - 24 jul 2020 • Berkeley, Californie, États-Unis
Organisateur:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Résumé:
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).

Summer School — Homotopical Methods in Fixed Point Theory
27 jul 2020 - 31 jul 2020 • Evanston, IL, États-Unis
Organisateur:
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL
Résumé:
The goal of this summer school is to introduce participants to tools and ideas from algebraic topology and homotopy theory that are used in the study of fixed point theory. The workshop will be centered around mini-courses, both on classical fixed-point theory and on modern techniques such as duality theory, spectra, and trace methods in algebraic K-theory.

The intended audience for this summer school should be familiar with the material in Hatcher (except the appendices). This reflects our goal that the school be accessible to second and third year students with an interest in algebraic topology from any PhD granting institution. The school will be structured around a few mini-courses, which will run in an active-learning style.

Résumé:
The purpose of this two weeks school is to introduce graduate students to the state of the art methods and results in the study of incompressible Euler's equations in general, and water waves in particular. This is a research area which is highly relevant to many real life problems, and in which substantial progress has been made in the last decade.
