School on Combinatorics, Automata and Number Theory - CIRM Marseille - May 2012
From 21st to 25th May 2012
, the third edition of the summer
school CANT will be organized in CIRM
(Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques: international center of mathematical meetings in Marseille, France). The first two editions were organized in Liège (Belgium). The first edition
and the second edition
gathered respectively 100 and 60 participants.
. This meeting is meant to be both an international summer school and conference. To reach these complementary goals, high quality lecturers of international recognition have been selected. Due to their scientific and pedagogical capabilities, we hope that they will attract a wide audience including Ph.D. students, young researchers as well as more mature researchers.
This time, we propose in CIRM a CANT international school which is aimed at presenting and developing recent
trends in Combinatorics, Automata Theory and Number Theory. In the
last decade, interest in Combinatorics on Words and in the
relationships existing between Mathematics and Theoretical Computer
Science has grown constantly. As a matter of fact, a series of
international conferences as well as books are now devoted to these
specific topics. One of the leading idea behind our concept of
Combinatorics, Automata and Number Theory is to focus on the fruitful
interactions existing between these different fields.
topics of this school
are (4 hours for each subject)
- Multidimensional symbolic dynamics
- Formal language and automata theory
- Combinatorics on words
- String/Text algorithms
- Tilings and cellular automata
- Road coloring problem and synchronization
For instance, a volume of the Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its
is related to the second edition of the school.
