Second School and Workshop on Univalent Mathematics (University of Birmingham), April 1-5, 2019

Homotopy Type Theory is an emerging field of mathematics that studies a fruitful relationship between homotopy theory and (dependent) type theory. This relation plays a crucial role in Voevodsky's program of Univalent Foundations, a new approach to foundations of mathematics based on ideas from homotopy theory, such as the Univalence Principle. The UniMath library is a large repository of computer-checked mathematics, developed from the univalent viewpoint. It is based on the computer proof assistant Coq.

In this school and workshop, we aim to introduce newcomers to the ideas of Univalent Foundations and mathematics therein, and to formalizing mathematics in a computer proof assistant based on Univalent Foundations.

We will have two tracks:

-  Beginners track
- Advanced track: suitable for participants with some experience in Univalent Foundations and the proof assistant Coq.

Funding will be given out on a 'first come first served' basis.

Pre-doctoral summer school in Quantitative Biology, July 8-19, 2019

In recent years, the concepts and tools of mathematics, physics, statistics and engineering have had a fundamental impact in biological research. Bioinformatics and in general the analysis of genomics data are largely based on statistics. Physical forces have finally been recognized as critical for shaping the behavior of cells. The ability of cells to read the environment and react accordingly via the expression of different classes of genes has been rationalized with the use of elegant mathematical models.

This pre-doctoral school will be an opportunity to experience research in an interdisciplinary environment.

We propose to students near the end of their undergraduate studies to familiarize with some of the concepts of quantitative sciences widely used in biological research.

The school is designed especially for students who are considering pursuing a PhD in research areas at the interface between biology and quantitative sciences. Students interested in exploring such opportunities in PhD programs at IFOM are especially encouraged to apply.

Up to twenty students will be selected. Attendance and lodging will be fully covered.

The quantum Steenrod square and related operations, 18.12.2018.

Nicholas Wilkins, University of Oxford will give a lecture "The quantum Steenrod square and related operations" in the frame of Symplectic topology Seminar on Tuesday, Dec 18, 2018 from 16:00 to 18:00 in room 821.

Abstract: The Steenrod square is a ring homomorphism from the cohomology of a topological space to the Z/2-equivariant cohomology of this space (with the trivial Z/2-action). Given a closed monotone symplectic manifold, we will define a deformed notion of the Steenrod square for quantum cohomology, which will not in general be a ring homomorphism, and talk about some properties and calculations. We will then frame these in the broader setting of Seidel’s equivariant pair-of-pants product.

Department of Astronomy Seminar, Nov 27th 2018

The next meeting of the Seminar will be held on Tuesday 27th Nov 2018, 18.00, room 809.

Lecturer:  Oleg Egorov (SAI MSU & SAO RAS, Russia)

Lecture: "Feedback-driven superbubbles and triggering of star formation in
nearby dwarf galaxies"


Abstract: Stellar feedback is important process regulating ISM morphology and kinematics: cumulative action of winds and ionizing radiation from massive stars with a following supernova explosions blow out superbubbles having sizes from a few pc to several kpc. This process is especially important in  dwarf irregular galaxies, which thick gaseous disk and lack of the density waves allow such structures to live longer and grow to a larger sizes than in spiral galaxies. The interaction of the giant HI supershells might trigger a new burst of star formation in a galaxy, while the influence of ongoing star  formation in their rims might lead to dissolution of the HI structures. In our ongoing survey with the Russian 6-m telescope we study the gas morphology, kinematics and young stellar population in star forming regions of nearby dwarf irregular galaxies.

In my talk I will briefly review some results. Several tens of the ionized superbubbles were identified and analyzed (including old supernovae remnants); certain signs of propagating of star formation were  found. We argue that at least in several galaxies the collision of the giant kpc-sized supershells plays important role in the triggering of a new burst of star formation.

Seminar of Department of Astronomy is held every second Tuesday during the semester (occasionally more frequently) in classroom 809 starting at 6 PM. Seminar coordinator is Dragana Ilić (initiator and coordinator until 2016 was Dejan Urošević).
