Over the past three decades, the ergodic theory for flows on homogeneous spaces has produced many beautiful applications in number theory, geometry and mathematical physics.
In these lectures I will provide an introduction to equidistribution theorems for large spheres and horospheres, and explain their very recent application to directional statistics for lattices, quasicrystals and other aperiodic point sets.
These lectures are introductory and aimed at a non-specialist mathematical audience. Much of the material is based on joint work with A. Strombergsson, D.
El-Baz and I. Let f be the obvious covering map from Euclidean n -space to the n -torus. It is well known that if L is any straight line in n -space, then the closure of f L is a very nice submanifold of the n -torus. A classical problem in the theory of quadratic forms is to decide whether two given integral quadratic forms are equivalent.Read, M. ORCID: Geometrical aspects of novel internally geared screw machine. Cylindrical helical gearing can be used in a positive displacement machine where an externally lobed inner gear rotates inside an internally lobed outer gear while maintaining continuous lines of contact between the gears.
This creates a series of separate working chambers between the rotors.
Workshop in Convexity and geometric aspects of Harmonic Analysis
In this type of machine the rotors have parallel axes of rotation, and both rotors can be free to rotate about their own axes. Fixed end plates are proposed as a method of controlling the period during which fluid is allowed to enter or leave the working chambers of the internally geared screw machine.
As with conventional screw machines, these internally geared rotors can then be used to achieve compression or expansion of a trapped mass of fluid. This paper describes the geometrical analysis of some simple rotor profiles and explores the effect on rotor forces for particular applications of this novel screw configuration.

It involves the interpretation of image data over time. It is crucial for a range of motion tasks such as obstacle detection, depth estimation, video analysis, scene interpretation, video compression and other applications.
Motion analysis is difficult because it requires modeling the complicated relationships between the observed image data and the motion of objects and motion patterns e.
This workshop was focused on critical aspects of motion analysis, including motion segmentation and the modeling of motion patterns. The aim was to gather researchers who are experts in the different motion tasks and in the different techniques used. These techniques include variational approaches, level set methods, probabilistic models, graph cut approaches, factorization techniques, and neural networks.
All these techniques can be subsumed within statistical and geometrical frameworks. We also involved experts in the study of human and primate vision. Primate visual systems are extremely sophisticated at processing motion so there is much to be learnt from studying them.
In particular, we wanted to relate the computational models of primate visual systems to those developed for machine vision. Here, several researchers from the cognitive sciences and biologically inspired vision rounded off the overall high quality of presentations and discussions. Another important component of the workshop was to develop datasets of image sequences with the associated motion ground truth.
These datasets can be used as benchmarks to compare the performance of motion analysis models. They can also be used as data to train statistical models of motion analysis. Datasets with ground truth are being increasingly used in other aspects of machine vision but, at present, there are only very limited motion datasets e.
We made the seminar interactive with plenty of time for discussion. The participants were also encouraged to exchange different modeling techniques and research experiences. We have also identified outstanding unsolved problems in motion analysis and discussed them during highly active group meetings. The participants of this seminar enjoyed the atmosphere and the services at Dagstuhl very much.The calendar is published for the convenience of conference participants and we strive to support conference organisers who need to publish their upcoming events.

This workshop will tackle some fundamental open questions about Artin-Schelter regular algebras, in particular, elliptic algebras, and their associated Poisson structures. In particular, it will focus on the correspondence between the representations of elliptic algebras and the symplectic leaves of their semi-classical limits, as well as on the relationship between the deformation theory of Artin-Schelter regular algebras and that of the derived category or the A-infinity-category of related projective schemes.
This workshop brings together leading experts in algebra and geometry from around the world to identify and attack these outstanding problems and to collaborate for future breakthroughs. Related subject s :. Event website:.
Workshop — Locality and Functoriality in Symplectic Geometry. Symplectic geometry concerns symplectic manifolds. A key modern tool is an algebraic structure called the 'Fukaya category', which is associated to a single such object. Geometric relations between the manifolds are reflected in algebraic interactions between the categories.
There has been a great deal of recent progress in understanding such relations. This workshop will bring together many of the key workers in this rapidly developing field to share ideas and set further directions of exploration. Birational geometry is a classical mathematic subject dating back to the late s.
It aims to classify geometric shapes by looking at the majority of their points and asks "if I remove some points from shape A and some other points from shape B, do they become the same shape? This turns out to be a surprisingly difficult and fundamental mathematical question.
Perhaps more surprising is that the classification of geometric shapes from birational geometry is related to the classification of abstract mathematical gadgets called derived categories, a formal language developed by prominent mathematicians in France in the s.
However, the relationship between derived categories and birational geometry remains unproven. Workshop — Integral and Metric Geometry. Valuation theory grew out of integral geometry, and studies such geometric quantities as volume, surface area, and their generalizations.
Spaces with curvature bounds are geometric objects which are not necessarily smooth, but that retain nevertheless some of the features of smooth spaces. The possibility of using quantum mechanics to build computers that are both faster and more secure is an exciting technological leap.
One of the most promising pathways to a robust architecture, referred to as topological quantum computing, has lead to fascinating research at the frontier of mathematics and physics. Properties of new, exotic states of matter can be understood - and hence implemented in practice - using tools that were developed by pure mathematicians in connection to surfaces and their curvature. This workshop is bringing together international experts to explore the intimate connections between such topological properties of quantum matter and the key resource of quantum computing: entanglement.
Structure and randomness in locally symmetric spaces. The study of discrete subgroups of Lie groups and the associated locally symmetric manifolds has a long and rich history, with powerful interconnections between the geometry of the locally symmetric space, topology of towers of its finite covers, and number-theoretic aspects. More recently dynamical and probabilistic techniques have been fruitfully employed to study these groups and spaces. The workshop will take stock of recent developments in these highly active fields from a variety of backgrounds.

Stability in mirror symmetry. This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will bring together mathematicians from a variety of backgrounds to discuss a central problem in mirror symmetry: the existence of special Lagrangian submanifolds, and their holomorphic mirrors, stable vector bundles.
These two classes of objects form a set of canonical geometric objects, described by fully nonlinear partial differential equations PDEswhich play a central role in mirror symmetry. Dating back to work of Thomas-Yau, it has long been conjectured that the existence of solutions to these nonlinear PDEs is equivalent to a purely algebraic notion of stability. This conjectural picture connects diverse fields of mathematics, ranging from stability conditions on derived categories, to symplectic geometry and the Fukaya category, to the study of the Lagrangian mean curvature flow and fully nonlinear systems of PDEs.
The central topics for the workshop are: The Lagrangian Mean Curvature Flow, singularity analysis, and connections with the Fukaya category. Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry. Research in combinatorial algebraic geometry utilizes combinatorial techniques to answer questions about geometry. Typical examples include predictions about singularities, construction of degenerations, and computation of geometric invariants such as Gromov-Witten invariants, Euler characteristics, the number of points in intersections, multiplicities, genera, and many more.
The study of positivity properties of geometric invariants is one of the driving forces behind the interplay between geometry and combinatorics. Flag manifolds and Schubert calculus are particularly rich sources of invariants with positivity properties. Graph Theory and Combinatorics.
Special attention will be given to efficient computations with multi-variate polynomials, which is a critical part of many algorithms in combinatorial algebraic geometry.
Aside from development of software, the workshop will feature a series of talks about polynomial computations, as well as introductory lectures about Sage and Oscar.
