Geometry and representation theory of tensors for computer science, statistics and other areas
July 21 to July 25, 2008
American Institute of Mathematics, Palo Alto, CA
Organizers:
Joseph Landsberg, Lek-Heng Lim, Jason Morton, and Jerzy Weyman
Description:
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to
translating questions from quantum computing, complexity theory,
statistical learning theory, signal processing, and data analysis
to problems in geometry and representation theory. In all these areas
varieties in spaces of tensors invariant under linear changes
of coordinates appear as central objects of study. Despite their
different origins, there are striking similarities among the
relevant varieties and this workshop will study ways of approaching
questions such as finding defining equations, hidden symmetries,
and singularities.
Deadline:
March 15, 2008
