Birzeit 2018 Conference
"Applied Mathematics and Random Structures"
Birzeit University, Palestine
Dates: August 27 to 30, 2018
DescriptionBirzeit 2018 Conference is mainly intended to foster future collaborations between Palestinian and French universities or research centres; enhancing collaborations with US or European Institutions is also hoped for. Birzeit 2018 Conference provides an opportunity for dissemination of important and recent results in the field of Applied Mathematics and Statistics with Applications to Economy, Industry, and Science. Regarding Applied Mathematics, we will consider as a non-exhaustive list of topics: Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations; Stochastic Applications to Mathematical Finance and Life Insurance, Non-linear Recurrences. We will address researches in randomness, probability or statistics, with a special focus on random graphs and trees, and random walks. Contributions related to algorithms on graphs and trees are also welcomed. Besides their great theoretical interest, random graphs and trees have numerous applications: world-wide web, biological networks, statistical criteria of decision, software and hardware programming and architecture. Random walks have been the subjects of intensive research during the last years; the methods used go from combinatorics and singularity analysis to large scale computer algebra. Very often, discrete structures have continuous limits, by instance Brownian motions for discrete random walks; this allows some fruitful interplay between discrete mathematics and probability theory. A tutorial for the freeware computer algebra system SAGE will be scheduled during the conference. Master Students and Faculty Members are welcome to attend, interact, exchange ideas and discuss the trends and prospects of future research.
Organizing committee :
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONSWe request the contribution of Palestinian academics who wish to give a long or short talk at the conference. According to the funds we will collect to support the conference, we will be able to subsidize the accomodation costs of a few Palestinians with no accomodation facilities near Birzeit. We will know by end of 2017 upon which financial basis we can organize the accomodation costs and will provide feedback by this period.
