SIAM Conference on Applied Algebraic Geometry

Georgia Tech is the site of the 2017 SIAM Conference on Applied Algebraic Geometry. This biennial meeting is an activity of the Activity Group in Applied Geometry of SIAM, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. The SIAM Activity Group in Algebraic Geometry aims to bring together researchers who use algebraic geometry in industrial and applied mathematics.

Plenary talks will be livestreamed through the conference main page

"Algebraic geometry" is interpreted broadly to include at least algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, noncommutative algebra, symbolic and numeric computation, algebraic and geometric combinatorics, representation theory, and algebraic topology.

These methods have already seen applications in biology, coding theory, cryptography, combustion, computational geometry, computer graphics, quantum computing, control theory, geometric design, complexity theory, machine learning, nonlinear partial differential equations, optimization, robotics, and statistics.

School of Mathematics professors Greg Blekherman, Anton Leykin, and Josephine Yu lead the local organizing committee.  

Speakers from Georgia Tech include School of Mathematics graduate students Jose Acevedo and Tim Duff; postdoctoral fellows Torin Greenwood, and Heather Smith; and professors Greg Blekherman, Stavros GaroufalidisPrasad Tetali, and Josephine Yu. They are joined by School of Physics Assistant Professor Elisabetta Matsumoto and Santanu Dey, an associate professor in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
