Coming Seminars

Our regular seminar program covers a broad range of topics from applied mathematics, pure mathematics and statistics. All welcome, especially students. A complete list of past seminars can be accessed via the left-hand menu.

David Frazier
We analyze the behavior of Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) when the model generating the simulated data differs from that generating the observed data, i.e., when the data simulator in ABC is misspecified. We demonstrate theoretically and in...

The small subgraph conditioning method was introduced by Robinson and Wormald (1992, 1994) to prove that a random $r$-regular graph contains a Hamilton cycle with probability which tends to 1 as the number of vertices tends to infinity, so long as...

Juan G. Criado del Rey
Homotopy methods is the name for a set of algorithms designed to find approximate solutions in a broad class of very important problems such as polynomial system solving or the eigenvalue problem. Roughly speaking, these methods consider...

Norman Wildberger
We will be bringing together ideas from classical projective geometry, triangle geometry, graph theory and hypergroup theory in order to understand a remarkable generalization of the Schiffler point in 20th century triangle geometry. The Schiffler...

Amie Wilkinson
The modern mathematical field of Dynamical Systems encompasses a wide range of subdisciplines and techniques. As its scope spreads into more and more areas of mathematics, one is led to redefine Dynamical Systems as a mode of thought, an approach...

Emeritus Professor D Brynn Hibbert FRSN
The seminar will be descriptions of an eclectic mix of mathematical and statistical methods applied in chemistry, with the unifying theme that the author has had a hand in each of them. The Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (1) ...
