German-Japanese Workshop on Theory and Practice of Real Computation

  • 2015/07/15

On Sunday, July 12th, 2015, scientists from Germany and Japan held a workshop on Theory and Practice of Real Computation at Meiji University, Tokyo. The workshop was jointly funded by the German Research and Innovation Forum Tokyo and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). Additional support was provided by the German JSPS Alumni Association.

The workshop was part of a larger scientific conference, the 12th International Conference on Computability and Complexity in Analysis, held at the same venue from July 12 to July 15, 2015. It, brought  together researchers and practitioners from two scientific communities, Computability and Complexity in Analysis and Reliable Computing for the purpose of developing synergies between both fields. The workshop also aimed to present practical applications of mathematical theory and thought.

The event began with welcome addresses held by the supporters and organizers of the conference, Prof. Dr. Martin Ziegler, Technical University of Darmstadt, Prof. Dr. Heinrich Menkhaus, Meiji University, and David Pinsker, German Research and Innovation Forum Tokyo.

Speakers from the community Computability and Complexity in Analysis then presented their work and research during the morning session. This session focused heavily on theory and research problems. The following afternoon session showcased the work of the community Reliable Computing. In contrast to the speeches of the morning session, the presentations of this session focused more on practical challenges such as the use of super-computers and floating point numbers or means to rigorously verify crossed mapping conditions for holomorphic dynamical systems.

The workshop was followed by a networking dinner for the speakers, supporters and invited guests. This dinner gave the participants further opportunity to exchange their views, discuss the contents of the workshop and explore further collaboration between the two communities. In his ending speech, Prof. Dr. Martin Ziegler also expressed his hope that the bilateral workshop may serve as a stimulus for further scientific cooperation between Germany and Japan.
