Diversity in Mathematics 2020

August 4, 2020 - August 14, 2020
Vancouver

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: (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…

PIMS/AARMS WORKSHOP ON New Trends in Localized Patterns in PDEs: Mathematical Theory and Applications to Physics, Biology and the Social Sciences– a Conference in Honour of the 60th Birthday of Michael J. Ward

August 10, 2020 - August 14, 2020
PIMS at UBC and SFU Vancouver, British Columbia Canada + Google Map

Localized spatial-temporal patterns commonly occur for various classes of linear and nonlinear diffusive processes. In particular, they occur in reaction-diffusion (RD) systems modeling quorumsensing (QS) behavior in biological systems, the initiation of root-hair tip formation in plant cells, and the spatial distribution of urban crime. Localization behavior also occurs in the biophysical context of calculating first passage statistics for a Brownian walker in a region with localized traps, and in ecology for calculating the persistence threshold of a species in…
