From the fall of 2016, BGSMath offers intensive advanced graduate courses every semester on specialized topics. The duration is 10 to 20 hours distributed along 2 to 3 weeks. Some are in connection with our monthly programs while others stand alone. The courses are organized by BGSMath members and taught by research leaders in the corresponding fields.

The main purpose of the course is to describe the nature of algorithmic learning (AL), of its most relevant modalities and most successful applications, together with a presentation of the main mathematical ingredients that provide the basis for both the definition and study of models and for the analysis of the algorithms. Along the way, open questions and problems will be highlighted.

Poisson processes are an important class of stochastic processes featuring in many branches of probability theory. They play a central role in stochastic geometry, where one is often interested in random geometric structures constructed from underlying Poisson processes. Examples include random tessellations, geometric random graphs, Boolean models, and random polytopes.

The theory of stable derivators can be thought of as a minimal enhancement of triangulated categories that allows for a good theory of homotopy co/limits. The idea of a derivator has been introduced independently by several authors in different areas of Pure Mathematics: Heller (in Algebraic Topology), Grothendieck (in Algebraic Geometry), Franke, Keller (in Representation Theory), and possibly others. This theory has recently found several applications to classical problems that had remained open for a long time in the setting of triangulated categories.
