Scientific, Seminar

SFU Mathematics of Computation, Application and Data ("MOCAD") Seminar: Gregor Maier

May 24, 2024

Simon Fraser University

Over the past few years, operator learning â€“ the approximation of mappings between infinite dimensional function spaces using ideas from machine learning â€“ has attracted increased research attention. Approximate operators, learned from data, hold...

May 25â€“26, 2024

University of Calgary

This event will be a special iteration of the Western Canada Linear Algebra Meeting (WCLAM) to honour Peter Lancaster at 95. There is a large and thriving Linear Algebra community in Western Canada, where there is ongoing research in matrix analysis...

Educational, Workshop

ELMACON & Math Challengers Question Seminar

May 25, 2024

University of British Columbia

On May 25th, Math Challengers and ELMACON are inviting volunteers to come to UBC for a workshop on creating new problems for these two contests. For over 20 years, these contests have challenged students with creative and innovative questions, aiming...

Scientific, Seminar

Ergodic Theory Seminar: Neda Abasi

May 27, 2024

University of British Columbia

We study the family of one dimensional piecewise smooth dynamical systems in which two classic theorems are still permanent. One of them is Birkhoff Transitivity Theorem and the other one is Banks, Brooks, Cairns, Davis and Stacey Theorem. Baker like...

Scientific, Public Lecture

2024 Niven Lecture: Jayadev Athreya

May 28, 2024

University of British Columbia

We'll talk about a piece of mathematics bringing together number theory (Ivan Niven's subject), geometry, and dynamical systems, that exemplify many of the things I love about math - community, diversity, collaboration, beautiful images, and an...

Industrial, Summer School

Math2PowerQuantum: Quantum Computing Summer School

May 29â€“30, 2024

University of Saskatchewan

The Math2Power Quantum summer school on quantum computing will be held across 2 days (May 29 and 30) in the lead up to the CMS Summer Meeting and is aimed at helping students in the mathematical sciences learn - through a combination of lectures and...

Scientific, Workshop

2024 CMS Summer Meeting Mini-Courses: Applied Topology: DNA Topology

May 31, 2024

University of Saskatchewan

DNA topology is the study of the geometry (supercoiling) and topology (knotting and linking) of DNA. Knots and links in DNA are known to obstruct normal cellular processes and geometric factors such as the amount of writhe or supercoiling are known...

Scientific, Workshop

2024 CMS Summer Meeting Mini-Courses: Applied Topology: Persistent Homology

May 31, 2024

University of Saskatchewan

Persistent Homology is an application of algebraic topology (filtered chain complexes) to statistics. Roughly speaking, one naturally associates filtered chain complexes to data in a variety of ways. Persistent homology is the structure of how the...
