Petersburg Positivity, previously planned for June 2020, has been moved to 2022. And now it will be held on June 20 - July 3, 2022, during the famous White Nights Season. Also, this time it will be held as a satellite to the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM, July 6-14), at Saint-Petersburg State University & Saint-Petersburg Department of V.A.Steklov Institute of Mathematics. Visa free entry will be supported by ICM.
The program is under construction at the moment. The conference will have a composite program. The first part, June 20-24, could be devoted to the Positivity Summer School. Special sessions and unscheduled time to encourage collaboration will be included in the program. An excursion and banquet on the ship are planned.
Please, subscribe to the future updates using the Pre-Registration button at the top of the page. If you want to give a plenary talk, series of lectures or you have any other suggestions, you may leave a note there as well.
The research subject “positivity” is the area in mathematics which is devoted to order structures and their applications. This is a broad field of research with many ramifications, covering a wide spectrum from fundamental research to more applied topics. To mention some of the topics included: ordered algebraic & topological structures (in particular, ordered topological vector spaces, Banach lattices and ordered Banach spaces), positive and order bounded operators (including spectral theory, operator equations, ergodic theory),Banach spaces (including their geometry, unconditional and symmetric structures, non-commutative function spaces and asymptotic theory), function spaces, operator algebras, non-standard analysis and Boolean valued models, Boolean algebras and stochastic processes, applications to mathematical finance.
