SUMMARY:Mini-course on GAP
DESCRIPTION:Leandro Vendramin of the University of Buenos Aires will give a\nspecial minicourse from January 13-17. The course will be on the\ncomputer algebra system GAP. It will take place in the Department of\nMathematics and Statistics at Dalhousie\, and will also be\nlive-streamed. It will be suitable for undergraduates\, graduate\nstudents\, postdocs\, faculty\, and everyone interested in symbolic\ncomputation. \nThe first lecture of the minicourse will also work as a colloquium.\nPlease see below for the precise dates and times. \nMonday\, January 13: 3:30-5\, Chase 319\nTuesday\, January 14: 11:30-1\, Chase 319\nWednesday\, January 15: 12:30-2:30\, Chase 227\nThursday\, January 16: 11:30-1\, Chase 319\nFriday\, January 17: 12:30-2:30\, Chase 227 \nSpeaker: Leandro Vendramin \nTitle: Algebra with GAP \nAbstract: We will give a brief introduction to the software GAP\,\ndesigned for calculations related to group theory. The course will be\nmainly based on examples\, exercises and application problems. We will\ndiscuss several different introductory mathematical topics such as\npermutations\, matrices\, groups\, rings\, and fields. More advanced\ntopics such as characters and representation of groups\, algebras\, and\nother algebraic structures\, will also be studied. GAP is freely\navailable at https://www.gap-system.org/ \nThe minicourse is organized by the Atlantic Algebra Centre at Memorial\nUniversity and by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at\nDalhousie University\, under the auspices of the AARMS Collaborative\nResearch Group on “Groups\, Rings and Hopf Algebras”. \n

SUMMARY:Combinatorial Algebra meets Algebraic Combinatorics 2020
DESCRIPTION:Combinatorics Algebra meets Algebraic Combinatorics” (CAAC) is a series of annual workshops that has been meeting since 2004. The main achievement of these meetings is the establishment of an ongoing dialogue between two separate research groups who had previously been using di erent techniques to study similar mathematical problems. The two groups are algebraic combinatorialists working on the representation theory of symmetric groups\, and commutative algebraists studying minimal free resolutions and inverse systems. Since the initial meeting\, the focus of the conference has broadened to include other areas of overlap. These include\, among others: (1) the representation theory of quivers (also known as directed graphs); (2) combinatorial Hopf Algebras\, which refers to a Hopf algebraic structure related to (quasi)symmetric functions\, permutations\, trees\, and other combinatorial objects; and (3) edge ideals of graphs and their algebraic invariants. \n

SUMMARY:Open quantum systems
DESCRIPTION:This course is concerned with the behaviour quantum systems under the influence of external noise. The theory describes generic noise induced features\, such as decoherence\, entanglement\, thermalization. They are of core interest in applications in various branches of science: in quantum information and computation\, chemistry\, material sciences and even in biology. Basic familiarity with this theory is a good (and necessary) foundation for a more advanced understanding of most modern quantum sciences. \nThe course will be taught by Marco Merkli (Memorial University) at the African Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) Centre of Excellence in Limbe\, Cameroon. AARMS support for Atlantic Canadian participation in AIMS graduate courses is an important component of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the two institutes in 2015. \n

SUMMARY:Calculus Instruction in Atlantic Canada Symposium 2020
DESCRIPTION:Calculus Instruction in Atlantic Canada Symposium 2020 will have the theme of Helping High School and University students to Deepen Their Understanding of Calculus. It will be held at STFX on May 29-30\, 2020 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 ways to help students with conceptual understanding of calculus through specific examples and applications. We will also address feedback from students. The structure of the symposium will include plenary talks and a panel of university and high school educators. There will be small group discussions\, as well as contributed talks. \n

SUMMARY:Queer and Trans Mathematicians in Combinatorics conference
DESCRIPTION:The Queer and Trans Mathematicians in Combinatorics conference (QTMC) is a first-ever event in combinatorics specifically aimed at queer and trans mathematicians. It aims to bring together and support queer and trans combinatorists. The conference promotes a supportive and active collaborative environment for the participants and aims to bring about visibility to an otherwise underrepresented invisible minority in the combinatorics community. The QTMCis heavily geared toward students\, postdocs and early career mathematicians who are queer and/or trans. \n

SUMMARY:Quantum Gravity 2020
DESCRIPTION:The conference “Quantum Gravity 2020“ has a deliberately broad scope. We aim to include participants from all current approaches to quantum gravity\, as well as researchers working on the phenomenology of quantum gravity. The main goal of the meeting is to assess the progress made and to constructively and openly discuss open questions in our understanding of quantum gravity. \nA second goal is to work towards combining the insights gained in the various approaches. In its overall goal as well as the format\, this conference will differ from more specialized meetings that focus on specific quantum-gravity approaches. \nWe hope that this inaugural conference “Quantum Gravity“ can make a contribution to bridging the gaps between quantum gravity approaches\, and bring the entire community together for a constructive and fruitful exchange. \n

SUMMARY:Diversity in Mathematics 2020
DESCRIPTION:We propose a multi-year\, multi-level approach to promoting diversity and inclusivity in STEM. The annual two-week program encompasses concurrent\, partially overlapping events targeting two distinct groups: \n(a) A summer school for top undergraduate women in Canada and the northwest United States\, specializing in mathematics or a related STEM field such as computer science\, physics and statistics. The program will expose them to the many facets of the mathematical sciences in an intense two week immersion. Career opportunities in academia and industry will be given equal emphasis. We hope to encourage these gifted young women to continue on to graduate school\, an arena where women are still seriously under-represented. \n(b) An interactive math camp that runs as a companion program to the summer school. The target demographic here involves high school students in grades 10 and 11\, irrespective of gender\, with an aptitude for science and mathematics but from under-privileged groups. \n
