The workshop "Complexity of Numerical Computation: A workshop in honor of Felipe Cucker" (or simply Felipe's Fest) will take place in Berlin from the 19th to the 23rd of August 2019. Colleagues and friends of Felipe Cucker will celebrate his 60th birthday presenting talks on the complexity of numerical computation and related topics. Additionally, the conference will have a lecture by Felipe on art and mathematics and an exhibition of the art project Approximation Theory in which Felipe took part. Every person in Berlin with an interest in mathematics is welcome to attend the conference. More information in this link .
This workshop is organized by Peter Bürgisser, Teresa Krick, Javier Peña and Steve Smale and will be funded by the Einstein Foundation Berlin and the European Research Council (ERC) (agreement grant No 787840).

No occurrence obstructions in Geometric Complexity Theory
Donnerstag, 21. April 2016
Valiant's algebraic version of the P vs. NP problem (VP vs. VNP) cannot be resolved by exhibiting representation-theoretic occurrence obstructions in the sense of Mulmuley and Sohoni. This has been recently shown by Peter Bürgisser in collaboration with Christian Ikenmeyer and Greta Panova, see [arXiv:1604.06431 ]. The paper has been accepted for publication in FOCS 2016.
