The special semester on Foundations of Computational Mathematics at MSRI brings together four mathematical cum computational subjects:
Needless to say, the above four subject areas do not exhaust the full range of disciplines with a relevance to FoCM, far from it! The MSRI program is just a start and we are already planning the next special semester, elsewhere.
A special semester on Symbolic computation in geometry and
analysis, organised by Marie-Francoise Roy, Michael Singer and
Bernd Sturmfels, will be held at MSRI simultaneously with the
FoCM semester. Each project will
address itself to a different agenda, yet we expect fruitful
coexistence and collaboration. The common agenda of the two projects
will be addressed at an introductory
workshop and at a joint workshop on
"Solving systems of equations".
