George Boole (1815-1864) was the first professor of mathematics at Cork. Boole's efforts to mathematize logical thinking caused a lasting paradigm shift in the 19th century which enlarged the scope and potency of modern mathematics, and provided a wealth of ideas for applications in diverse scientific areas resulting in ground-breaking innovations during the 20th century and beyond. This event will include 100-150 lectures on selected areas: - Theme 1: Boole and Beyond in Quantum Information Theory - Theme 2: From Boole's Algebra of Logic to Boolean Algebra, and Beyond - Theme 3: Complex and Boolean NetworksGeometry and Visualization - Theme 4: Geometry and Visualization - Theme 5: Harmonic Analysis - Theme 6: Invariants from Moduli Spaces - Theme 7: Mathematical Financial Modelling Post-Crisis - Theme 8: Quantum Probabilistic Symmetries and Quantized Boolean Algebras The following events are embedded in and associated with the conference: - 2015 Annual Meeting of the Irish Mathematical Society (IMS) - Domains XII - When Boole Meets Shannon HIGHLIGHTS OF LOGIC, GAMES AND AUTOMATA (HIGHLIGHTS 2015) Call for Presentations Prague, 15-18 September 2015 http://highlights-conference.org * AIMS HIGHLIGHTS 2015 is the third conference on Highlights of Logic, Games and Automata which aims at integrating the community working in these fields.
