Symmetry, Invariants, and their Applications: A Celebration of Peter Olver’s 70th Birthday
August 3, 2022 - August 5, 2022
This is a proposal for a workshop on symmetry, invariants, and their applications in celebration of Peter Olver’s 70th birthday. Transformation and groups are an omnipresent concept in nature, science, and art. Many biological, chemical, physical, or man-made structures exhibit symmetries as a fundamental design principle or as an essential aspect of their functioning. Symmetry groups also occur in a wide variety of modern applications including computer vision, archaeology, numerical integration, and neural networks, differential equations, geometry, and applied mathematics.
During his prolific career, Peter J. Olver played an important role in the development of symmetry group methods to differential equations, geometry, and applied mathematics.The purpose of the workshop is to bring together leading experts, promising younger researchers, and graduate students from around the world to assess the rapid advances occurring in the field of symmetries and invariants, and to evaluate the most promising directions of future developments.
