Generated Jacobian Equations: from Geometric Optics to Economics
The Banff International Research Station will host the "Generated Jacobian Equations: from Geometric Optics to Economics" workshop from April 9th to April 14th, 2017.
The Banff International Research Station will host the "Generated Jacobian Equations: from geometric optics to economics'' workshop. This workshop will gather experts from across the world with background in areas such as mathematics, economics, and engineering to discuss deep connections between their respective fields with the aim of developing new theoretical frameworks, practical models, and numerical algorithms.
New avenues of research resulting from this meeting could potentially lead to improvements in a diverse area of practical applications, for example: the development of new engineering tools in laser optics, more efficient satellite receivers, better car headlights, lenses and optical instruments (telescopes and microscopes); or the development of tools in the analysis of a wider variety of economic markets.
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 disc iplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineeri ng Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
