A thematic semester in algebraic geometry, in particular moduli spaces, under analytic, algebraic and arithmetic points of view.
In spring/summer 2014 a special algebraic geometry semester, in
particular on moduli spaces, will be organized by the labex Centre
Henri Lebesgue (CHL) - headed by the IRMAR dept. and the ENS in
Rennes, and by the LMJL dept in Nantes. This will consist of several
activities (schools, conferences, workshops, etc.) related broadly to
moduli spaces from analytic, algebraic and arithmetic points of view,
to be held in Rennes, Nantes, Angers and Brest. All the information
and subscription forms can be found on the website

The aims of the workshop are twofold: on the one hand, bringing together experts in the field of modular Iwahori-Hecke algebras in order to discuss recent developments; on the other hand, embedding the topic into a larger picture by comparing it with developments in the theory of related or similar modular algebras (e.g. modular Cherednik algebras), and by presenting techniques of potential future relevance (e.g. categorification).
A modular Iwahori-Hecke algebra is the Hecke algebra, with coefficients in a field of characteristic p, of an Iwahori-subgroup in the group G(F) of F-points a reductive group G over a local field F with residue characteristic p. More generally, one may replace the Iwahori subgroup by its maximal p-Sylow subgroup. These algebras have been studied systematically first by Marie-France Vigneras.

Random graphs, stochastic processes on graphs and algorithms for computations on these structures continue to play a dominant role in algorithmic research and discrete mathematics, with recent applications ranging from web search and recommendation engines to social networks and system biology.

Stochastic optimization embodies a collection of methodologies and theory that aim at devising optimal solutions to countless real-world inference problems, particularly when these involve uncertain and missing data. At the heart of stochastic optimization is the idea that many deterministic optimization problems can be addressed in a more powerful and convenient way by introducing intrinsic randomness in the optimization algorithms. Furthermore, this generalization gives rise to a set of techniques that are well suited for settings involving uncertain, incomplete, or missing data.
Particularly important in the present workshop is the quantification of the performance of a given online stochastic optimization/online learning procedure. This challenging question requires several ingredients to be answered adequately; in particular one needs to develop a proper optimality framework. Here parallels with modern statistical theory emerge, as notions such as consistency, convergence rates and minimax bounds, common in statistical theory, all have parallels in stochastic optimization and online learning.
LMS Northern Regional Meeting Followed by Series of Minicourses.
It will start with a one day LMS Northern Regional Meeting with three lectures aimed for a broad audience of nonspecialists. A series of minicourses covering various topics in analytic number theory and dynamics will follow in the next four days.
The aim of the Easter School is to bring researchers from both areas of Mathematics together and to provide ample opportunities for communication.
We invite PhD students and researchers from both analytic number theory and dynamics to attend this event. Accommodation and meals will be provided. Priority will be given to those who apply before 31 December 2013.

Some recent advances in the control of partial differential equations will be presented. The control subject is devoted to modifying a state by means of an external action (the control). Many applications will be considered, to physical, mechanical or biological models, and, in particular, to quantum systems.

The workshop brings together leading international researchers in various fields of stochastic analysis in infinite dimensional spaces. This workshop is supported by the EPSRC project Cylindrical Levy Processes and Their Applications (Markus Riedle) and the London Mathematical Society.
The aim of the workshop is to gain a deeper understanding of the probabilistic, and more general, mathematical difficulties underlying the study of stochastic processes and stochastic differential equations in infinite dimensions. The workshop emphasises a non-Gaussian setting, but without excluding research in this area.
Felix Klein Center for Mathematics, University of Kaiserslautern, Germany
Professor Peter Kloeden (Goethe-Universität Frankfurt) will offer a lecture series on
"Recent Advances in the numerical Approximation of Stochastic Partial Differential Equations"

Grand Hotel delle Terme Re Ferdinando, Ischia (Naples, Italy)
The meeting, organized by Università di Salerno together with Università di Milano and L'Aquila, will consist of talks given by invited speakers and a permanent poster session.
The scientific programme will be dedicated to the memory of David Chillag, on Thursday, and to the memory of Brian Hartley, on Friday.
Conference proceedings will be published.

Spectral graph theory, which studies how the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the graph Laplacian (and other related matrices) interact with the combinatorial structure of a graph, is a classical tool in both the theory and practice of algorithm design. The success of this approach has been rooted in the efficiency with which eigenvalues and eigenvectors can be computed, and in the surprisingly large number of ways that a graph's properties are connected to the Laplacian's spectrum---particularly to the value of its second smallest eigenvalue, λ2.

The idea of the conference is to promote exchange of information between international experts and people in the UK working in different areas of operator theory and analysis. We expect that this will be fruitful for both of these branches of mathematics and will point the way forward to new research questions.

During the last few decades operator theory and its applications in various fields, such as hydrodynamics, quantum mechanics, quantum optics, and quantum field theory have been a quickly developing branch of mathematics. This area is strongly influenced by modern analysis, including modern real and complex analysis.
