The "Theoretical and Applied Aspects of Nonnnegative Matrices" workshop will be hosted at The Banff International Research Station.

Matrices or more simply arrays consisting of nonnegative numbers have been a rnrnfocus for mathematicians, computer scientists, and engineers for many years.rnrnThis class of matrices is not only of theoretical importance, but figure prominently rnrnin many applications throughout a number of different disciplines.rnrnrnrnOur focus for this short work shop will be to continue to make progress onrnrncurrent theoretical challenges as well as more global applied issues that rnrnare of current interest.rn

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the US National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnologí255a (CONACYT).
