The 2005–2006 IMA thematic program on Imaging drew to a close at the end of June. The very exciting ten month program brought in over 700 visitors, including over 70 who visited for at least a month. Bytes, Camera, Action at IMA Workshop, which appeared in the June edition of SIAM News, reports on one of the Imaging workshops.
The 2006–2007 thematic program on Applications of Algebraic Geometry is proving tremendously popular, with 95 confirmed visitors of a month for more, about a third of whom will be at the IMA for the duration of the program. But first come the summer 2006 IMA programs: the recently concluded New Directions short course on Biophysical Fluid Dynamics, the 2006 summer program on Symmetries and Overdetermined Systems of Partial Differential Equations, the IMA PI Summer Program for Graduate Students on Topology and its Applications, and the Mathematical Modeling in Industry X workshop for graduate students.
The IMA is now accepting participant applications for the fourth Blackwell–Tapia Conference, to be held at the IMA on November 3–4, 2006. The one and a half day meeting honors David Blackwell and Richard Tapia, who inspired a generation of AfricanAmerican, Native American and Latino/Latina students to pursue careers in mathematics.
The conference will include a mix of activities, including talks by William Massey and Ehran Cinlar of Princeton, Illya Hicks of Texas A&M, and Mark Lewis of Cornell; a session of poster presentations; panel discussions about career opportunities in mathematics, and about recruitment and retention of a diverse mathematics workforce; and ample opportunities for discussion and interaction.
A high point of the meeting will be the awarding, during the conference banquet on Saturday evening, of 2006 BlackwellTapia prize to William Massey, in recognition of his outstanding achievements in queuing theory, stochastic networks, and the modeling of communications systems, and in increasing diversity in the mathematical sciences.
Limited funds are available for travel and local expenses, so apply soon.
The symmetries to be studied in the this Summer Program naturally arise in several different ways. Firstly, there are the symmetries of a differential geometric structure. By definition, these are the vector fields that preserve the structure in question—the Killing fields of Riemannian differential geometry, for example. Secondly, the symmetries can be those of another differential operator. For example, the Riemannian Killing equation itself is projectively invariant whilst the ordinary Euclidean Laplacian gives rise to conformal symmetries. In addition, there are higher symmetries defined by higher order operators. Physics provides other natural sources of symmetries, especially through string theory and twistor theory.
These symmetries are usually highly constrained—viewed as differential operators, they themselves are overdetermined or have symbols that are subject to overdetermined differential equations. As a typical example, the symbol of a symmetry of the Laplacian must be a conformal Killing field (or a conformal Killing tensor for a higher order symmetry). The Summer Program will consider the consequences of overdeterminacy and partial differential equations of finite type.
