MATH + X Symposium on Dynamos, Planetary Exploration and General Relativity, Inverse Problems and Machine Learning

Hella, Iceland; May 29 – June 1, 2023

The Symposium focuses on simulation, analysis, inverse problems and data science on the one hand, and planetary exploration and general relativity on the other hand. Central themes include dynamos, atmospheres, planetary formation and dark matter.

Connecting observations from space missions, experimental data and theoretical formulations, directly (physical properties) and indirectly (coupling to processes), as well as enabling simulations naturally belongs to the fields of inverse problems and (scientific) machine learning. This Symposium aims to break new ground in these connections.

The Symposium will also celebrate the 60th birthday of Maarten de Hoop.Maarten de Hoop
