**General Information:**

Higher Teichmüller theory brings together three apparently unrelated mathematical objects: geometric structures, representation varieties and Higgs bundles. The two first are a valuable tool to study the shape of spaces, how they can vary and what is preserved under given changes. The second comes from the study of differential equations closely connected to Physics: a Higgs bundle can be though of as a generalization of a Higgs boson.

**General Information:**

The goal of this workshop is to present state of the art results, on both theoretical guarantees and numerical algorithms, for tomographic reconstruction regularized by co-/sparsity, total variation etc. We aim to pinpoint the gap between the practical efficiency of recent regularization methods, and our mathematical understanding of low complexity models in tomographic inversion. While many theoretical guarantees rely on uniform analysis with random measurements, tomographic reconstruction requires more customized mathematical tools and algorithms to capture the geometry of signals and images that can be stably recovered. This includes for instance total variation minimization from tomographic measurements and the development of novel recovery algorithms that can cope with huge problem sizes like occuring e.g. in 3D tomography. The workshop will gather talks by leading experts in the fields of compressive sensing and large-scale numerical optimization.

Abstract:

Nach einer ersten Erwähnung durch Tits im Jahr 1956 und einer langen
Phase der Nichtbeachtung ist die Idee des "Körpers mit einem Element"
in den letzten zehn Jahren von mindestens zwölf verschiedenen Autoren
aufgegriffen worden. Es geht dabei um Geometrie, die als Limesfall von
Geometrien über endlichen Körpern entsteht, und um algebraische Varietäten,
die "universell", also über beliebigen Grundkörpern definiert werden
können. Der Vortrag diskutiert einige der vielen in letzter Zeit
vorgeschlagenen Definitionen von Varietäten, oder Schemata, über dem
"Körper mit einem Element" und fügt eine weitere hinzu, die durch die
Beschreibung der Werte von Zetafunktionen arithmetischer Schemata
durch Weil-etale Kohomologie motiviert ist.

Elliptic Curves and Explicit Class Field Theory

Prof. Dr. Henri Darmon

McGill University, Canada

Abstract:

The values of the exponential function $e^{2\pi i z}$ and of the modular
function $j(z)$ (at rational and quadratic imaginary arguments, respectively)
lead to explicit generators for essentially all abelian extensions of the
rational numbers and of quadratic imaginary fields. The associated theories
of cyclotomic fields and of complex multiplication are quite rich and were
actively pursued in the 19th century. Kronecker's "Jugendtraum", raised
again by Hilbert as the twelfth in his celebrated list of open problems
for the new century, seeks to extend these theories to base fields other
than the rationals or quadratic imaginary fields. More than a hundred
years later, Hilbert's 12th problem is still largely open. This lecture
shall survey the history of this problem and describe some of the more
recent attempts to make progress, based on the study of elliptic curves
and of their rational points.

Joachim Cuntz, Uni Münster

Abstract:

A C*-algebra is an involutive algebra which is isomorphic to a closed and *-closed algebra of operators on a
Hilbert space. The K-theory for C*-algebras generalizes the topological K-theory introduced by Atiyah-
Hirzebruch and has close commections to index theory (in the sense of Atyah-Singer) as well as applications in
different fields such as for instance the classification of differentiable manifolds. In this series of
lectures I will try to give an introduction for non-experts to the basics of the theory of C*-algebras (first
lecture) and of their topological K-theory (second lecture). In the third lecture I plan to discuss recent
examples of C*-algebras arising naturally from structures in algebraic number theory. The description of their
K-theory is related to number theoretic concepts.

"The Standard Model from String Theory: a Challenge in Physics and Mathematics"

Prof. Andre Lukas

(Oxford University)

Abstract:

The talk will be discussing the attempts to relate string theory to realistic particle physics, particularly in the context of the
heterotic string. String theory, formulated in 10 dimensions, requires compactification of six of its dimensions in order to relate
to observable physics. This relationship intertwines the physics of string theory with the mathematics of six-dimensional manifolds,
particularly Calabi-Yau three-folds. Methods of algebraic geometry and commutative algebra become directly relevant as tools to extract
the physics of string models. I will outline this interplay between physics and mathematics and review recent progress which has led
to the construction of a large number of quasi-realistic models from string theory.

Prof. Mitchell Luskin

School of Mathematics, University of Minnesota, USA

Abstract:

Many materials problems require the accuracy of atomistic modeling in small regions, such as the neighborhood
of a crack tip. However, these localized defects typically interact through long-range elastic fields with a
much larger region that cannot be computed atomistically. Materials scientists have proposed many methods to
compute solutions to these multiscale problems by coupling atomistic models near a localized defect with continuum
models where the deformation is nearly uniform on the atomistic scale. During the past several years, a mathematical
structure has been given to the description and formulation of atomistic-to-continuum coupling methods, and
corresponding numerical analysis has clarified the relation between the various methods and their sources of
error. This lecture will begin by introducing the physical and mathematical background and then presenting the
current state of numerical analysis for atomistic-to-continuum coupling methods.

Dr. Marius Hofert

RiskLab, Department of Mathematics, ETH Zurich

Abstract:

Archimedean copulas are well-known to copula theory and its
applications. These dependence structures share many useful properties such as an
explicit functional form, tail dependencies, and fast
sampling procedures. However, Archimedean copulas are symmetric which implies, for
example, that all bivariate margins are equal. To relax this rather strong
assumption in practical applications, so-called nested Archimedean copulas may be
considered.

After briefly mentioning other hierarchical dependence structures, focus is put on
the class of nested Archimedean copulas including properties and sampling
strategies. These copulas are still explicit and allow for different tail
dependencies. Additionally, they have a natural hierarchical interpretation which
is useful in various applications such as credit default models.

Dr. Andreas Basse-O'Connor

Department of Mathematics Aarhus University, Denmark

Abstract:

In this talk we will consider convergence of series of independent
stochastic processes with cadlag paths (cadlag means right-continuous with
left-hand limits). For symmetric processes, we show that finite dimensional
convergence to a cadlag limit implies uniform convergence almost surely, and
thereby extend the Ito-Nisio Theorem to the Skorokhod space D[0,1]. The main
difficulties of dealing with D[0,1] in this context are its non-separability under
the supremum norm and the discontinuity of the addition under Skorohod's topology.

We use this result to prove the uniform convergence of various series
representations of cadlag infinitely divisible processes. As a consequence, we
obtain explicit representations of the jump process, and of related path
functionals, in a general non-Markovian setting. Finally, we illustrate our
results on an example of stable processes. To this aim we obtain criteria for such
processes to have cadlag modifications, which may be of independent interest. The
talk is based on joint work with Jan Rosinski, The University of Tennessee.

In this paper we consider a semimartingale model for the evolution of the price
of a financial asset, driven by a Brownian motion (plus drift) and possibly
infinite activity jumps. Given discrete observations, the Threshold estimator is
able to separate the Â integrated variance IV from the sum of the squared jumps.
This has importance in measuring and forecasting the asset risks and for constructing
new tools to study the fine structure of the data generating process. In this paper
we provide the exact speed of convergence of $\hat{IV}_h$, a result which was known
in the literature only in the case of jumps with finite variation. This has practical
relevance since many used models have jumps of infinite variation (see e.g. Carr,
Geman, Madan \& Yor 2002).

We consider a mathematical model of a rigid body immersed in a viscous,
compressible fluid moving with a prescribed velocity on the boundary of a large ball
(channel) containing the body. We show continuity of the drag as well as domain shape
stability of solutions in the incompressible limit, where the Mach number approaches
zero.

In recent research on the Riemann zeta function and the Riemann Hypothesis,
it is important to calculate certain integrals involving the characteristic
functions of N Ã N unitary matrices and to develop asymptotic expansions of
these integrals as N â â. In this talk, I will derive exact formulas for
several of these integrals, verify that the leading coefficients in their
asymptotic expansions are non-zero, and relate these results to conjectures
about the distribution of the zeros of the Riemann zeta function on the critical
line. I will also explain how these calculations are related to multivariate
statistical analysis and to the hypergeometric functions of Hermitian matrix argument.

Abstract:

About 350 BC, Aristoteles observed that bodies denser than water could
under some conditions float at a water surface. A century later, Archimedes produced
a general theory that formally contradicted these observations, but which yielded
remarkably good predictions for large bodies such as ships. Very little further
literature relative to general floating criteria has appeared prior to the current century,
when the behavior of small particles at a liquid surface began to receive attention
from varying sources. I will discuss my own contributions and those of contemporary
authors, with special attention devoted to open questions suggesting investigation via
numerical methods.

Given two samples of continuous random curves, we consider the problem of comparing
their smoothness properties as these are encoded by their covariance structure.
Our study is motivated by the problem of determining whether the mechanical properties
of short strands of DNA are significantly affected by their base-pair sequence; while
this is believed to be true, it has not been confirmed by 3D data. The corresponding
functional testing problem is seen to involve aspects of ill-posed inverse problems and
a test based on spectral truncation is proposed and investigated. More generally, we
introduce the notion of a dispersion operator as a descriptor of second-order functional
properties and consider the problem of comparing the dispersion operators of two functional
populations. When applied to a dataset of DNA minicircles obtained through the electron
microscope, our tests seem to suggest the existence of a sequence effect on DNA shape.

We are facing an increasing complexity in the models of scientific
computing. Multi-physics applications, highly non-linear processes and
domains exhibiting a complex shape are only some examples of such
complexity. These changes pose a big challenge to the development of
scientific software. On the one hand the requirements on the software
are growing, e.g. broader feature sets, demand for easy
parallelism. On the other hand the turn over times are getting
shorter, which requires shorter development times.

To handle these requirements, DUNE provides a flexible framework for
grid based methods for the solution of PDEs. We present extensions of
the DUNE framework to handle multi-physics and multi-domain
applications. The modules allow flexible computations while still
allowing an efficient, i.e. rapid, implementation of new simulations.

MATCH is very happy to support and enrich interdisciplinary activities, especially if they
break new ground. This is the case in symposium on October 8 and 9, 2010 which is also
suppported by the DFG and the City of Heidelberg.
It takes place parallel to the festival "LINKS â Heidelberger Biennale für Neue Musik"

This year the focus is on compositions and performances of the 20th and 21st century
using most varying mathematical methods to organize their works.

The main aims of this symposium are:

-- to connect music and mathematics and to foster the exchange ideas,

-- to survey the state-of-the-art in methods for analyzing music and to identify important
open problems,

-- to present recent progress in relevant mathematical and computational methods and techniques,

-- to initiate cooperation in future research and development of tools for composition, interpretation and performance of music.

It aims to bring together invited international experts on music and mathematics who will
present, in lectures and discussions, the state-of-the-art in the field, the challenges and
recent progress in their field of interest, their theoretical results and practical methods
for solving arising problems.

The ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) is one of several methods for estimating
the initial conditions for numerical weather predictions. Typically, initial
conditions are estimated through a statistical adjustment of a prior forecast
to newly available atmospheric measurements from satellites, weather balloons,
and so on. To achieve the most accurate analysis, accurate error covariances
are needed both for the prior forecast and for the observations. The novel
aspect of the EnKF rleative to other "data assimilation" methods is that the
error covariances for the forecast are computed from an ensemble of short-range
weather forecasts. This provides a weather-dependent estimate of the forecast
error covariances. The talk will review the basics of the Kalman filter; explain
how the EnKF overcomes some of the limitations of the Kalman filter; explain the
algorithmic enhancements to the standard EnKF that make it practical for numerical
weather prediction; provide some real-world examples of the EnKF and the improvements
that have been obtained relative to the current standard data assimilation techniques;
and describe the areas where more research and development is needed.
