Professor Anton Leykin is a member of the organizing committee for the SIAM Conference on Applied Algebraic Geometry to be held on the Colorado State University campus August 1-4, 2013. Among the invited speakers is Professor Greg Blekherman.
The SIAM Activity Group in Algebraic Geometry brings together researchers who use algebraic geometry in industrial and applied mathematics. Algebraic geometry is interpreted broadly to include at least: algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, noncommutative algebra, symbolic and numeric computation, algebraic and geometric combinatorics, representation theory and algebraic topology. These methods have already seen applications in: biology, coding theory, cryptography, combustion, computational geometry, computer graphics, quantum computing, control theory, geometric design, complexity theory, machine learning, nonlinear partial differential equations, optimization, robotics and statistics.
