Program on Optimization (OPT)

Program Dates: August 8, 2016 – May 31, 2017

Optimization is an exceptional field where collaboration between Mathematics and Statistics can produce truly groundbreaking advances. It is the mission of this year-long SAMSI Research Program to capitalize on and advance this synergy.

 

Program on Statistical, Mathematical and Computational Methods for Astronomy (ASTRO)

Program Dates: August 22, 2016 – May 31, 2017

A vast range of statistical problems arise in modern astronomical and space sciences research, particularly due to the flood of data produced by both ground-based and space-based astronomical surveys at many wave-bands. A resurgence of interest in statistical and applied mathematical methods has emerged among astronomers and astrophysicists as they seek insights into the physical phenomena underlying such complex data. Researchers often confront problems for which the common approaches in astronomy either inadequately utilize known methods or require the development of new methods.
