In a recent paper, Marcus, Spielman and Srivastava solve the Kadison-Singer Problem by proving Weaver's KS2 conjecture and the Paving Conjecture. Their proof involved a technique they called the “method of interlacing families of polynomials” and a “barrier function” approach to proving bounds on the locations of the zeros of real stable polynomials. Using these techniques, they have also proved that there are infinite families of Ramanujan graphs of every degree, and they have developed a very simple proof of Bourgain and Tzafriri's Restricted Invertibility Theorem. The goal of this workshop is to help build upon this recent development by bringing together researchers from the disparate areas related to these techniques, including Functional Analysis, Spectral Graph Theory, Free Probability, Convex Optimization, Discrepancy Theory, and Real Algebraic Geometry.
