  2. [Moved Online] Introductory Workshop: Mathematical problems in fluid dynamics

    Organizers: Nicolas Burq (Université de Paris XI), Anne-Laure Dalibard (Université de Paris VI (Pierre et Marie Curie)), Jean Marc Delort (Université de Paris XIII (Paris-Nord)), LEAD Mihaela Ifrim (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Irena Lasiecka (University of Memphis), Vladimir Sverak (University of Minnesota Twin Cities)

    This workshop will be held online.  The Zoom link will be provided at a later time. You must register for the workshop to receive the password.  The workshop is held in Pacific Standard Time.

    The workshop will address topics in the PDE analysis of the basic equations of the incompressible fluid dynamics (the Euler equations for inviscid flows, the Navier Stokes equations for viscous flows), interface problems (water waves), and other related equations. Open problems and connections to related branches of mathematics will be discussed, including the phenomena of turbulence and the zero viscosity limit. Both theoretical and numerical aspects of these topics will be considered. There will be some colloquium style lectures as well as shorter research talks. The workshop is open to all.

  3. Recent Developments in Fluid Dynamics

    Organizers: Thomas Alazard (Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay; Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)), Hajer Bahouri (Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions; Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)), Mihaela Ifrim (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Igor Kukavica (University of Southern California), David Lannes (Université de Bordeaux I; Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)), LEAD Daniel Tataru (University of California, Berkeley)

    The aim of the workshop is to bring together a broad array of researchers working on incompressible fluid dynamics. Some of the key topics to be covered are Euler flows, Navier Stokes equations as well as water wave flows and associated model equations. Some emphasis will also be placed on numerical analysis of the above evolutions.

  4. Critical Issues in Mathematics Education 2021: Initiating, Sustaining, and Researching Mathematics Department Transformation of Introductory Courses for STEM Majors

    Organizers: Naneh Apkarian (Arizona State University), David Bressoud (Macalester College), Pamela Burdman (Just Equations), Jamylle Carter (Diablo Valley college), Ted Coe (Northwest Evaluation Association), Estrella Johnson (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University), W. Gary Martin (Auburn University), Michael O'Sullivan (San Diego State University), William Penuel (University of Colorado), LEAD Chris Rasmussen (San Diego State University), Daniel Reinholz (San Diego State University), Wendy Smith (University of Nebraska), David Webb (University of Colorado)

    The world is changing, along with perceptions. Many call for the improvement of mathematics teaching and learning, for both citizenry and STEM preparation. To achieve sustainable change, though, the focus needs to extend from individuals to systems. It is not enough to change one classroom or one course. Transformation requires change at all levels: in teaching, programmatic practices, and institutions. This workshop will bring together teachers and researchers from universities, community colleges, and K-12 schools to explore the reasons for and processes by which change in university mathematics departments is initiated, promoted, and sustained and lessons learned from change efforts in K-12. It will review what we know about change at all levels and reflect on stories of failure and success.

    This workshop will be held online.  The Zoom link will be provided at a later time. You must register for the workshop to receive the password.  The workshop is held in Pacific Standard Time.

    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.

    This workshop will focus on cutting-edge research in random matrices and integrable probability. We will explore connections with other branches of mathematics and applications to sciences and engineering. The workshop will feature presentations by both leading researchers and promising newcomers. We will have a panel discussion of topics relevant to junior researchers, women, and minorities; a poster session for students and recent PhDs; and other social events. This workshop is open to and welcomes all mathematicians.

  7. Introductory Workshop: Universality and Integrability in Random Matrix Theory and Interacting Particle Systems

    Organizers: LEAD Gerard Ben Arous (New York University, Courant Institute), Alice Guionnet (École Normale Supérieure de Lyon), Sylvia Serfaty (New York University, Courant Institute), Horng-Tzer Yau (Harvard University)

    The introductory workshop aims at providing participants with an overview of some of the recent developments in the topics of the semester, with a particular emphasis on universality and applications. This includes universality for Wigner matrices and band matrices and quantum unique ergodicity, universality for beta ensembles and log/coulomb gases, KPZ universality class, universality in interacting particle systems, the connection between random matrices and number theory.

  8. Regularity Theory for Minimal Surfaces and Mean Curvature Flow

    Organizers: LEAD Christine Breiner (Fordham University), Otis Chodosh (Stanford University), Luca Spolaor (University of California, San Diego), Lu Wang (California Institute of Technology)

    This workshop will explore connections between the regularity theory of minimal surfaces and of mean curvature flow. Recent breakthroughs have improved our understanding of singularity formation in both settings but the current research trends are becoming increasingly disparate. Experts from both areas will present their research and there will be ample free time to establish connections between the topics.

  9. Integrable structures in random matrix theory and beyond

    Organizers: LEAD Jinho Baik (University of Michigan), Alexei Borodin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Tamara Grava (University of Bristol; International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA/ISAS)), Alexander Its (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis), Sandrine Péché (Université de Paris VII (Denis Diderot))

    This workshop will focus on the integrable aspect of random matrix theory and other related probability models such as random tilings, directed polymers, and interacting particle systems. The emphasis is on communicating diverse algebraic structures in these areas which allow the asymptotic analysis possible. Some of such structures are determinantal point processes, Toeplitz and Hankel determinants, Bethe ansatz, Yang-Baxter equation, Karlin-McGregor formula, Macdonald process, and stochastic six vertex model.
