RMMC Summer Events

The University of Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain Math Consortium are proud to Present

Free Probability, Random Matrices, and Applications

June 6–10, 2022

This event is planned to be held in person, but all lectures will have hybrid components for remote participation.

Overview
Free probability, introduced by Dan Voiculescu, is a highly noncommutative probability theory based on free independence which takes the place of classical independence. It is an extremely rich theory and has been very successful in its almost 40 years development with deep applications to other fields of mathematics and sciences. It has became an essential tool for researchers working on operator algebras, random matrix theory and related areas. 

The summer school will bring together leading experts, young researchers, and students working in free probability, operator algebras, random matrices, and related fields with the aim of fostering new communications and collaborations. The program of the summer school will consists of four mini-courses together with research talks, and will introduce topics in free probability and random matrix theory to a diverse audience.

Main Speakers
Hari Bercovici (Indiana University)
Benoit Collins (Kyoto University)
Ken Dykema (Texas A&M University)
Alexandru Nica (University of Waterloo)
Dimitri Shlyakhtenko (UCLA)
Dan Voiculescu (UC, Berkeley)

Mathematical Modeling in Ecology

Date: June 13-24, 2022

The program is aimed at graduate students in mathematics and life sciences who wish to learn important mathematical techniques for modeling and analyzing biological data. Beginning with a rapid tutorial phase, the workshop will emphasize practical, hands-on experience for building and analyzing models, estimating parameters, and biological interpretation of mathematical outputs. Results will test existing hypotheses, generate novel predictions, and provide researchers new insights in ecology. Examples will come from a variety of emerging fields, including: 1) modeling toxin and nutrient dynamics within an individual consumer and populations and 2) modeling population dynamics of interacting species by incorporating food, predator, and parasite risks. Potential modeling approaches include physiological-based models, functional response models, and agent-based models.
