Mini-course “Representations of simple finite dimensional and affine Lie algebras”

January 21, 2019 - January 25, 2019
Memorial University (St. John’s Campus) St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada + Google Map

This mini-course will focus on Representation Theory of simple complex finite dimensional and affine Lie algebras. We will start with the introduction to the theory of infinite dimensional weight representations. Though the classification of irreducible representations is still open beyond the sl(2) case in general, in some subcategories this problem can be managed successfully. In particular, we will discuss the theory of Gelfand-Tsetlin modules and their generalizations in the finite dimensional case. A comparison will be given with the representations…

Integration Challenge at StFX

January 29, 2019
St. Francis Xavier University Antigonish, Nova Scotia Canada + Google Map

The integration challenge, modelled on an annual version at MIT, is a one-night event where first-year calculus students sign up to compete head-to-head solving integrals. The competition will run like a tournament in single-knockout format, and integration problems increase in difficulty through each round. Information about mathematics as a choice of major, and research opportunities are also planned at the event. Prizes and certificates are awarded to the top 3 finishers.

Borders in public health and mathematical epidemiology

May 5, 2019 - May 9, 2019
Fields Institute, 222 College St.
Toronto, Ontario M5T 3J1 Canada
+ Google Map

Most research in Mathematical Epidemiology focuses on infectious disease characteristics within local, isolated populations and geographic regions. However, infectious diseases are not confined to small regions. They cross borders, affecting multiple populations, jurisdictions, and governments. This workshop aims to foster mathematical models of infectious diseases across borders and at the intersection of mathematics and public health. An important component of this workshop is the inclusion of infectious disease modellers that work in local, federal, and global health organizations. The workshop…

Calculus Instruction in Atlantic Canada Symposium 2019

May 24, 2019 - May 25, 2019
Mount Saint Vincent University, 166 Bedford Hwy
Halifax, Nova Scotia B3M 2J6
+ Google Map

Calculus Instruction in Atlantic Canada Symposium 2019 will have the theme of Bridging the Gap: High School and University Mathematics. It will be held at MSVU on May 24-25, 2019 and Atlantic Canadian high school educators, as well as university educators will be invited. The goal of this symposium is to give participants the opportunity to hear from experts and engage in discussions regarding misconceptions between what math skills students have leaving high school and what math skills universities assume…
