Department of Applied Physics, Autonomous University of Baja California, Mexicali, Mexico

Title: Theory of Numbers Application in Practical Metrology Tasks Abstract: The theory of Numbers has applications in many fields of practical life. One of the most indicative of them is Metrology. Because naturally the measurement is a comparison of unknown measurand with a certain integer number of units, obviously plus a certain integer number of subunits, obtained by division of the whole unit by finite quantity of integer parts. Thus, the framework of pure Theory of Numbers can be helpful for Metrology because this branch of Mathematics can provide useful tools for faster and more converged solution. For example, in the time/frequency measurement the use of Theory of Numbers theorems, and particularly the mediant concept, can propose the result unattainable for classic statistical metrology. This in engineering consequently can offer novel possibilities in many industrial devices such as pressure and torque sensors, accelerometric platforms, IMU, microbalances, 3D self-orientation positioners, etc.

Title: Higher Order Approximation Methods for Multi term Time Fractional Parabolic Integro Differential Equations of Volterra type. Abstract: In this talk, I will consider a class of multi term time fractional problems which are frequent in viscoelastic modeling. We generalize this problem in parabolic convection-diffusion-reaction framework and introduce the Volterra integral operator for considering existence, uniqueness and numerical approximations of these type of problems. We propose a time adaptive graded mesh which will produce higher order accuracy in time even when the weakly singular integral operator is present at this problem. Theoretical results will be shown and numerical experiments will be produced in favor of theoretical findings.

Title: Explicit solutions and stability for three-dimensional water waves in two-layer flows. Abstract: We present explicit solutions in the setting of Eulerian framework to the three-dimensional nonlinear water waves in two-layer flows. These solutions admit vertical structure and non-constant vorticity vectors. We consider two-layer flows whose density depends on the depth.

Department of Aerospace Engineering, Texas A&M University, 3141 TAMU, College Station, TX 77843-3141, USA

Title: Functional interpolation: what is it? Abstract: This talk summarizes what analytical Functional Interpolation (FI) is and presents some of its applications. FI derives analytical expressions with embedded constraints, expressions describing all possible functions satisfying a set of constraints. This new mathematical framework has been extended to multivariate domains and to a wide class of constraints, including points, functions, fractional derivatives/integrals, limits, component, and any linear combination of them. Applications are found in constrained optimization problems as these functionals collapse the whole search space to just the solutions space fully satisfying the constraints. This way, the solutions are then obtained with more simple, fast, robust, and accurate methods. These problems include differential equations, homotopy continuation, calculus of variations, etc. This talk summarizes how to derive these analytical functionals, shows how to use them to solve some practical problems, and compares the proposed approaches with the current state-of-the-art approaches.

Title: The AI Mathematician Abstract: We report and summarize some of the recent experiments in machine-learning of various structures from different fields of mathematics, ranging from the string landscape, to geometry, to representation theory, to combinatorics, to number theory. We speculate on a hierarchy of inherent difficulty and where string theoretic problems tend to reside. In due course, we address the tantalizing question of how AI helps doing pure mathematics.

Title: On Inferring Syntax and Semantics of Domain-Specific Languages. Abstract: This talk describes a research work on Semantic Inference, which can be regarded as an extension of Grammar Inference. The main task of Grammar Inference is to induce a grammatical structure from a set of positive samples (programs), which can sometimes also be accompanied by a set of negative samples. Successfully applying Grammar Inference can result only in identifying the correct syntax of a language. With the Semantic Inference, a further step is realised, namely, towards inducing language semantics. When syntax and semantics can be inferred, a complete compiler/interpreter can be generated solely from samples. Moreover, from a formal specification, many other tools (editor, compiler, debugger, test engine) can be generated automatically. To solve the problem of Semantic Inference successfully, the Genetic Programming approach was employed, which is a population-based evolutionary search. The first results were encouraging, and we were able to infer S-attributed, L-attributed and Absolutely Non-circular Attribute Grammars.
