Positivity Conference

  • Start Date: 07/17/2017
  • End Date: 07/21/2017

University of Alberta


The subject area of Positivity is concerned with order structures in Analysis. It goes back to F. Riesz and H. Freudenthal, and to the
Nobel prize winning work of L. Kantorovich. The last few years have seen rapid advances of multiple modern areas of Positivity and
applications to Math Economics and Math Finance. Positivity conferences are held biennially. Even though many leading researchers in the field are in the US and Canada, there has never been a Positivity conference in North America. They are normally held every second year. This will be the 9th Positivity conference; it will be the first in North America.
