2019 Workshop on Testing Gravity

Einsteins theory of General Relativity (GR) works remarkably well on Earth and inside our Solar System. However, there remain significant gaps in our understanding of gravity. One is the long- standing quest for a quantum theory of gravity. The other...

2017 SFU Symposium on Mathematics and Computation

A wide overview of mathematical techniques of interest in various big data problems. Organizers: Cedric Chauve, Mathematics - SFU Tamon Stephen, Mathematics - SFU

Scientific, Conference

7th Canadian Discrete and Algorithmic Mathematics Conference (CanaDAM 2019)

The CanaDAM conference will bring together researchers from the various disciplines with which discrete and algorithmic mathematics interact. Particular areas of interest are the following: graphs and digraphs, hypergraphs, matroids, ordered sets...

The 14th Intl. Conference on Finite Fields and their Applications (Fq14)

The Fq conference is a biannual conference that covers various topics in finite fields including but not limited to: Theory: structure of finite fields, primitive elements, normal bases, polynomials, number-theoretic aspects of finite fields...

Scientific, Distinguished Lecture

PIMS - SFU Operations Research Seminar: Jong-Shi Pang

The phrase "non-problems" in the title refers to a collection of adjectives that start with the prefix "non". These include "non-convex", "non-differentiable", "non-traditional", "non-trivial", and "non-stochastic gradient" (as a counter to a topical...

SFU Theory Seminar: Vaishak Belle

We consider the problem of answering queries about formulas of first-order logic based on background knowledge partially represented explicitly as other formulas, and partially represented as examples independently drawn from a fixed probability...

SFU Theory Seminar: Eugenia Ternovska

A challenge in descriptive complexity is to identify logics with low complexity that simultaneously express both fundamental reachability properties and counting properties on unordered structures. In this talk, we introduce a family of logics that...

PIMS-SFU Applied & Computational Math Seminar: Boris Hanin

Neural networks are remarkable families of non-linear functions that form the backbone for state-of-the-art algorithms in tasks from computer vision (self-driving cars), natural language processing (Google Translate) and reinforcement learning...

Scientific, Seminar

PIMS-SFU Applied & Computational Math Seminar: Laura Thesing

This talk will focus on two topics in the foundations of neural networks: computability and false structures. In the first part I will recall briefly the concept of recursive functions and then discuss the gap between existence results, the...

Scientific, Distinguished Lecture

PIMS-SFU Applied & Computational Math Seminar: Michael Friedlander

The aim of structured optimization is to assemble a solution, using a given set of atoms, to fit a model to data. Polarity, which generalizes the notion of orthogonality from linear sets to general convex sets, plays a special role in a simple and...
