Young Functional Analysts' Workshop

Apr 23 2014 - 00:00
Apr 25 2014 - 23:59
Venue: 

Lancaster University, UK

Short description of the event: 

The Young Functional Analysts’ Workshop (YFAW) is an event aimed at early-stage researchers (postgraduates and postdocs) in functional analysis and related areas.

The workshop has been running successfully for several years now, with previous meetings having been held in Leeds, Newcastle, York, Oxford and Sheffield. YFAW offers participants an opportunity both to present their own work in front of a sympathetic audience, and to get to know less familiar areas of current research in functional analysis through talks given by other young researchers as well as invited speakers. All participants are encouraged to take advantage of the friendly and welcoming environment and give a talk, but those who would prefer not to are equally welcome.

Apr 25 2014 - 23:59
Venue: 

London, UK

Short description of the event: 

The Women in Mathematics Day is an annual event organised by the London Mathematical Society for women in mathematics to meet together for a day of talks and discussion groups.

The talks are given by women mathematicians from a range of disciplines and who are at various stages in their careers.

The event is aimed in particular at postgraduates, final year undergraduates and those at an early stage in their career. The Women in Mathematics Day provides an opportunity to meet and talk with women who are active and successful in mathematics. Participants from previous meetings have found this opportunity useful and beneficial.

While women are especially encouraged to attend this day, men are certainly not excluded from these events.

Eigenvectors in Graph Theory and Related Problems in Numerical Linear Algebra

May 5 2014 - 00:00
May 9 2014 - 23:59
Venue: 

Brown University, Providence, RI/USA

The analysis of problems modeled by large graphs is greatly hampered by a lack of efficient computational tools. The purpose of the workshop is to explore possibilities for designing appropriate computational methods that draw on recent advances in numerical methods and scientific computation. Specifically, the questions of how to form the matrices representing graph Laplacians, and how to compute the leading eigenvectors of such matrices will be addressed.

Master Class : Around Thurston-Grothendieck-Teichmüller theories

Short description of the event: 

The aim of this master class is to give an introduction to hyperbolic geometry, Riemann surfaces and Teichmüller spaces as these appear in the works of Thurston, Grothendieck and Teichmüller, and to show the connections between the various theories. There will be also a course on the dynamical/probabilistic aspects of hyperbolic geometry.
Seven 5-hour courses will be given by: Norbert A’Campo (Basel), Louis Funar (Grenoble), Jacques Franchi (Strasbourg), Hugo Parlier (Grenoble), Gabriela Schmithüsen (Karlsruhe), Muhammed Uludağ (Istanbul) and Alexandre Zvonkine (Bordeaux).

The master-class is oriented to graduate and PhD students and post-docs. Confirmed researchers are also welcome.
