The second Junior Meeting organised by the Berlin Mathematical School (BSM) and the Barcelona Graduate School of Mathematics (BGSMath) took place in Berlin from 26th to 28th June 2019, with the participation of 17 members of the BGSMath. The Junior Meetings were launched in October 2017, with the first edition held in Barcelona, to create strong scientific exchange, strengthen research collaboration between the respective maths communities, and enhance the multicultural environment of both graduate schools. The second Junior Meeting now aimed to intensify current collaborations and create new links between the two schools.
The three-day scientific program provided a wealth of interesting half-hour talks by 18 doctoral students and postdocs from the two schools. Mario Kummer (TU Berlin), Albert Mas-Blesa (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya), and Thomas Krämer (HU Berlin) gave one-hour talks as plenary speakers.
The thematic focus was on three main areas:
– Algebra, Geometry, Topology
– Probability theory, Statistics, Analysis and PDEs
– Discrete Mathematics and Computer Science.
