Laura Schaposnik: Higgs bundles, branes and applications
Simons Conference on Random Graph Processes
May 9-12, 2016, UT Austin.
This workshop, funded by the Simons Foundation, is the third in a series of meetings organized at UT Austin on related topics, alternating yearly in an emphasis on mathematics one year, and on network applications the next. The 2016 workshop will again be on the mathematics of stochastic processes and graphs, this time focusing on the studies of processes in, and on, large graphs. Our aim is to bring together a diverse set of eminent researchers from various communities in this broad subject, to give a global picture which will hopefully lead to interactions and cross-fertilization.

Pi Pops Up Where You Don't Expect It
Why do we celebrate Pi, the world's most famous number, every year on Pi Day? The exact value of Pi has fascinated people since ancient times, and we have computed trillions of digits. But why do we care? Our own Lorenzo Sadun, explains why this number captivates us and how it appears in many unexpected places.
