The study of the equations defining projective varieties, and the relations (i.e. syzygies) amongst them has an old and venerable history. First considered around 1850 in the work of Sylvester, the computation of syzygies has remains a central topic in algebra to this day. Much later on, it was realised that syzygies arise naturally in ... Read more about ""Syzygies of curves""

Deep convolutional neural networks (DCNNs) have led to breakthrough results in numerous machine learning tasks, yet a comprehensive mathematical theory explaining this success seems distant. In this talk, we explain how the structure of DCNNs naturally leads to desirable invariance and deformation insensitivity properties for feature extraction and classification. We then establish formally that deep ... Read more about "Harmonic analysis of deep convolutional neural networks"

Geometric group theory involves the study of groups as geometric objects, often via their (well-behaved) actions on (tractable) spaces, from which information about the group -- algebraic, geometric, algorithmic, etc. -- can be decocted. A major theme is that this method is particularly powerful when the spaces in question exhibit features of negative or nonpositive ...

Graphene’s remarkable electronic properties arise from its peculiar electronic structure that is characterized by a linear dispersion around a band crossing point, forming the famous two-dimensional “Dirac cones”. In recent years, three-dimensional semi-metals have been discovered with 3D linear dispersions, forming the materials class of Weyl- and Dirac-semi-metals.
