Current Topic Workshop: Mathematical Developments Arising from Biology

(November 8,2009 - November 10,2009 )

Organizers


John Guckenheimer
Mathematics Department, Cornell University
Reinhard Laubenbacher
Department of Mathematics, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
Bernd Sturmfels
Mathematics, University of California

This workshop will focus on significant theorems, theories and algorithms in mathematics that have been or are being inspired by problems in biology. Topics will be chosen from dynamical systems, combinatorics, partial differential equations, probability, statistics, topology, algebraic geometry, and others. The primary goal is to bring new, deep, and interesting mathematical questions to the attention of the entire mathematical sciences community. We plan strong efforts to attract mathematical scientists who have had little previous contact with the biosciences. We believe that through workshops such as this, the MBI can contribute to the enrichment of fundamental research in the mathematical sciences. We plan more extensive MBI programs like this in the future.
