DESCRIPTION:Title: Discrete Geometric Analysis Applied to Materials Science\nby Professo
r MOTOKO KOTANI (Tohoku University\, Japan) as part of ITB Mathematics Dis
tinguished Lecture Series\n\n\nAbstract\nDiscrete geometric analysis is a
discrete version of geometric analysis. In the digitalized society\, how w
e understand phenomena in the physical world via their realization in the
cyber world. Discrete geometric analysis aims to bridge between continuum
and discrete\, and to understand the hidden phenomena in discretized data.
In the lecture I would like to share with you my study to develop discret
e geometric analysis and its application to materials science.\n\nProfesso

ofessor HANS Z. MUNTHE-KAAS (University of Bergen\, Norway) as part of ITB
Mathematics Distinguished Lecture Series\n\n\nAbstract\nIn the 20th centu
ry the dichotomy between abstract and concrete formulations created a deep
dividing gap between pure and applied mathematics. In the 21th century a
new unification is emerging. Pure mathematics is transformed by a focus on
computable structures and algorithms\, and computational mathematics is s
uccessfully using abstractions to design qualitatively better algorithms a
nd software. Computational mathematics is becoming a strong unifying force
of modern mathematics.\n\nHans Z. Munthe-Kaas:\nProfessor at the Universi

DESCRIPTION:Title: Permutation Matrices\, Alternating Sign Matrices\, and Generalizations\nby Professor RICHARD BRUALDI (University of Wisconsin\, USA) as part of
ITB Mathematics Distinguished Lecture Series\n\n\nAbstract\nThe study of
permutations is both ancient and modern. One can view them as the integers
1\,2\, … \, n in some order or as n x n permutation matrices. They can
be regarded as data which is to be sorted. The explicit definition of the
determinant uses permutations. An inversion of a permutation occurs when
a larger integer precedes a smaller integer. Inversions can be used to de
fine two partial orders on permutations\, one weaker than the other. Parti
al orders have a unique minimal completion to a lattice\, the Dedekind-Mac
Neille completion. Generalizations of permutation matrices determine relat
ed matrix classes\, for instance\, alternating sign matrices (ASMs) which
arose independently in the mathematics and physics literature. Permutation
s may contain certain patterns\, e.g. three integers in increasing order\;
avoiding such patterns determines certain permutation classes. Similar re
strictions can be placed more generally on (0\,1)-matrices. \n\nThere are
continuous analogs of permutation matrices and alternating sign matrices\,
and even higher dimension analogs. We shall explore these and other ideas
and their connections.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The Quantum Computer - A Miracle or Mirage?\nby Professor Gil Kalai (
Hebrew University of Jerusalem) as part of ITB Mathematics Distinguished L
ecture Series\n\n\nAbstract\nA quantum computer is a new type of computer
based on quantum physics. \nWhen it comes to certain computational objecti
ves\, the computational ability of \nquantum computers is tens\, and even
hundreds of orders of magnitude \nfaster than that of the familiar digital
computers\, and their construction will enable \nus to factor large integ
ers and to break most of the current cryptosystems. \n\nThe question of wh
ether the quantum computer is\na miracle or a mirage is\, to this day\, on
e of the fascinating clear-cut\nopen scientific questions of our time. \n\
nIn my lecture I will explain the question and the discoveries from \nthe
1990s that suggested that quantum computers could perform \nmiracles. Next
\, I will present my theory as to why \nthe quantum computer is a mirage\,
and describe some consequences \nfor noisy quantum systems in a world dev
oid of quantum computation.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Ricci Flow and Geometrization\nby Professor Gang Tian (Peking Univers
ity\, China) as part of ITB Mathematics Distinguished Lecture Series\n\n\n
Abstract\nIn this general talk\, I will give a brief and non-technical tou
r on role of analysis in studying problems in geometry as well as some oth
er mathematical branches. This can be done through Ricci flow and geometri
zation. Geometrization is to equip manifolds under consideration a useful
metric structure\, such a metric structure is often given by the Einstein
equation.\n\nAn effective method of achieving geometrization is to use Ric
ci flow introduced in early 80s. Since then\, it has had many applications
. The most famous one is Perelman’s solution of the Poincare conjecture.
In this talk\, I will first start with some basics on metrics and explain
how geometrization determines topology of surfaces. Then I will introduce
Ricci flow and show some of their properties.\n\nI will discuss how Ricci
flow is applied to geometrization of surfaces and its generalization to h
igher dimensions. One deep application in higher dimensions is to solve Th
urston’s geometrization conjecture for 3-manifolds\, particularly\, the
Poincare conjecture. The other is the Analytic Minimum Model Program which
aims at classifying Kahler manifolds birationally. Some open questions ma
y be presented in the end.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Randomness\nby Professor Avi Wigderson (IAS\, USA) as part of ITB Ma
thematics Distinguished Lecture Series\n\n\nAbstract\nIs the universe inhe
rently deterministic or probabilistic? Perhaps more importantly - can we t
ell the difference between the two? Humanity has pondered the meaning and
utility of randomness for millennia. There is a remarkable variety of ways
in which we utilize perfect coin tosses to our advantage: in statistics\,
cryptography\, game theory\, algorithms\, gambling... Indeed\, randomness
seems indispensable! \n\nWhich of these applications survive if the unive
rse had no randomness in it at all? Which of them survive if only poor-qua
lity randomness is available\, e.g. that arises from "unpredictable" pheno
mena like the weather or the stock market? \n\nA computational theory of r
andomness\, developed in the past three decades\, reveals (perhaps counter
-intuitively) that very little is lost in such deterministic or weakly ran
dom worlds. In the talk I'll explain the main ideas and results of this th
eory. \n\nNo special background will be assumed.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Solving Non-Linear Equations System using Spiral Optimization Algorithm
with Clustering\nby Professor Kuntjoro Adji Sidarto (ITB Indonesia) as
part of ITB Mathematics Distinguished Lecture Series\n\n\nAbstract\nDevel
oped by Tamura and Yasuda in 2010\, Spiral Optimization Algorithm (SOA) is
a metaheuristic method for finding numerical solutions to optimization pr
oblems. We improved the optimization capability of the algorithm by adding
the Clustering scheme\, so it can find local and global optimums. The met
hod has performed very well in solving many problems\, including real-worl
d problems\, finding real and complex roots\, and Diophantine equations.\n

Senjo Shimizu (Kyoto University\, Japan) as part of ITB Mathematics Disti

-Stokes equations\, which are derived from the laws of \nconservation of m
omentum and conservation of mass. \nThe Navier-Stokes equations are nonlin
ear partial differential equations \nwhich include the first-order spatial
derivative of the velocity vector\, called the advection term. \n\nIn thi
s talk\, we will consider free boundary problems are considered \nwhere th
e boundary of the fluid changes with time\, such as raindrops or ocean wav
es. \nIn particular\, I would like to discuss global in time well-posednes
s of the free boundary problem \nin an unbounded domain in the scale-invar
iant space. \nOur proof is based on maximal $L^1$-regularity of the corres
ponding \nStokes problem in the half-space.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Principals’ Leadership Capability for Mathematics in STEM\nby Prof
essor Kim Beswick (University of New South Wales\, Australia) as part of I
TB Mathematics Distinguished Lecture Series\n\n\nAbstract\nLeadership Cont
ent Knowledge (LCK) comprises school leaders’ knowledge of subject matte
r and beliefs about how that subject matter is learned. It influences thei
r capacity to enact instructional leadership by guiding teachers and provi
ding them with feedback on their teaching performance. A principal with st
rong mathematics LCK can support teachers to emphasise such things as math
ematical reasoning and problem-solving and provide advice on how understan
ding of important mathematical ideas can be developed. Principals’ LCK a
lso influences their decisions about hiring and resource allocation. In th
is this presentation I consider the nature of school principals’ LCK for
mathematics\, and how it relates to their LCK for other STEM subjects.\n\
