Abstract
This workshop will bring together computer scientists and mathematicians to examine the P v. NP problem and its variants from the perspectives of algebra, geometry, and number theory, and to introduce the mathematical aspects of these questions to a larger audience. Diverse researchers working on different aspects of these problems will clarify connections between different approaches.
There will be two main topics: Analogues of P v. NP (e.g., Valiant's conjectures, the MulmuleySohoni Conjecture, the BSS model, and other computational models); and Algebraic, Number Theoretic, and Geometric Aspects of P v. NP (e.g., Holographic algorithms, characterizations of NP in terms of sheaf cohomology, sparse polynomials, and other arithmetic approaches).
The workshop will emphasize the "work" aspect, so there will be few scheduled lectures, with extensive discussion periods, and followup lectures scheduled impromptu as needed.
Confirmed Speakers & Participants
Talks will be presented virtually or inperson as indicated in the schedule below.
