4th SDP days

21-3-2013 - 22-3-2013

This a two-days meeting (at CWI Amsterdam) for those who are interested in semidefinite programming and its application to combinatorial optimization, complexity theory, mathematical physics, geometry, and graph theory.

There will be nine lectures by Per Austrin (KTH, Stockholm),  Christine Bachoc (University of Bordeaux), Francois Glineur (Louvain-la-Neuve),  Joao Gouveia (Coimbra), Konstantin Makarychev (Microsoft), Markus Schweighofer
(Konstanz), Renata Sotirov (Tilburg),  Juan Vera (Tilburg), and Stephanie Wehner (NUS, Singapore). Additionally there will be several lectures by young researchers.

Participation is free. If you like to participate, please send an email to Frank Vallentin before March 8, 2013 so that we can plan the coffee and lunch breaks.

NWO Call for Tenure Track positions

NWO has opened a call for tenure track positions. Proposals for these positions, which include one PhD position for each tenure track position, can be submitted directly to NWO by professors from the 4 mathematics clusters, including Diamant. Diamant professors are warmly encouraged to submit proposals. Read more.

Dion Gijswijt and Jordan Ellenberg independently substantially improve capset bound

A capset in a finite dimensional vector space over the field with 3 elements is a subset that contains no 3-term arithmetic progressions. Dion Gijswijt (TU Delft) and Jordan Ellenberg have independently obtained a bound on the size of a capset that for the first time improves substantially on the trivial bound 3^n. Read more in Terence Tao's blog about these developments.

Harry Buhrman lectures on quantum computing in Universiteit van Nederland

Starting 12 January 2015, the Universiteit van Nederland publishes five public lectures by Harry Buhrman, head of the research group quantum computing at CWI. The series of lectures features the do's and don'ts of the computer of the future. From Monday through Friday, a new lecture will be available on the site of the Universiteit van Nederland each day.
