Coimbra Meeting on 0-1 Matrix Theory and Related Topics

Monday, June 15, 2009 - 10:00pm to Thursday, June 18, 2009 - 9:59pm

Matrices with entries consisting only of zeros and ones, whose entry sums
of rows and columns are constrained, play an active role in modern
mathematics and its applications, extending far beyond their natural
context of Matrix Theory, Combinatorics or Graph Theory.

The purpose of this meeting is to bring together mathematicians from
different areas with a view to exploring a number of new properties on the
set A(R,S), whose insertion tableau has a previously-fixed shape, and
identifying fruitful avenues for further research. In spite of their
extremely demanding nature, recent developments and procedures have
evidenced a remarkable elegance and beauty, strengthening the
interdisciplinary approach of the issue. It is the purpose of this meeting
to attract more mathematicians to this exciting and important area, and
to foster collaborations with other scientific users.
