The Banff International Research Station will host the "Random Algebraic Geometry" workshop in Banff from April 16 to April 21, 2023.

High-quality randomness is a valuable commodity in computation, experimentation, and discovery. This workshop focuses on randomness as a resource within real and complex algebraic geometry. The program highlights three current research trends: understanding the statistical properties of fundamental geometric invariants, developing randomized algorithms for symbolic and numerical calculations in algebraic geometry, and exploring the synergies between algebraic geometry and data analysis. This workshop will, for the first time, bring together a wide range of mathematicians interested in random algebraic geometry.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
