Point Configurations: Deformations and Rigidity23 Dec 2019, by Sponsored events in
LMS Research School at the University College London, 20-24 July 2020
Location: Lecture Theatre G12, Department of Statistical Science, University College London, UK
The aim of the research summer school is to present several different modern perspectives on the rigidity and deformability of optimum point configurations. Three main points of view are presented in the lecture courses: the point of view of material science and elasticity; the point of view of approximation theory; and the point of view of the methods of Viazovska, based on linear programming bounds.
Lecturers and Plenary Speakers
The three main lecture course topics are:
– Crystallization in classical particle systems (Gero Friesecke, Technical University of Munich)
-Modular forms, universal optimality and Fourier interpolation (Danylo Radchenko, ETH Zurich)
These lecture courses will be supplemented by tutorial sessions. Additionally, there will be three plenary talks by:
–Keith Ball (Warwick University)
–Henry Cohn (Microsoft Research New England)
–Sylvia Serfaty (New York University)
There will also be an opportunity for the participants to present posters or give short talks on their own research.
