Yuichi Hirose - Victoria University, Wellington (New Zealand)
Ever since Akaike proposed the Information Criteria named after him, his approach to model selection has been an important part of statistical data analysis. As a result, many further Information...

Dmitriy Zanin - UNSW
We present a systematic study of asymptotic behavior of (generalised) \zeta-functions and heat kernels used in noncommutative geometry and clarify their connections with Dixmier traces. We strengthen...

Pr Steve Marron - University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (USA)
Object Oriented Data Analysis is the statistical analysis of populations of complex objects.  In the special case of Functional Data Analysis, these data objects arecurves, where standard Euclidean...

Prof. B. Mordukhovich - Wayne State University
Variational analysis has been well recognized as a rapidly growing and fruitful area inmathematics motivated mainly by the study of constrained optimization and equilibriumproblems, while also...

Martijn Caspers - Radboud University Nijmegen
Quantum groups can be considered as deformations of a function algebra on locally compact groups. Many properties of abstract harmonic analysis have a suitable interpretation in the deformed setting...

Prof. Gang Tian - Princeton University
Curvature flows have played a very important role in recent developments in geometry and topology, such as, resolution of Thurston's Geometrization Conjecture for 3-manifolds by using Ricci flow. In...

Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber - Institute of Applied Mathematics, Middle East Technical University, 06531 Ankara, Turkey
This presentation introduces recent research efforts and results in identifying and predicting time-dependent processes, with various degrees of model discontinuity and uncertainty. This...

Ben Goldys - UNSW
We will consider a class of infinite-dimensional non-symmetric Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes. They provide a general model for a large variety of equations, including stochastic equations with time...

Associate Professor John Murray - School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW
The Mathematical and Statistical Biology Symposium is an informal forum for researchers to hear about work in progress.  The format consists of a 30 minute presentation followed by coffee and cake in...

Thomas Britz - UNSW
Wei's Duality Theorem states a simple, elegant, and fundamental dual property for linear codes (also called vector spaces). This talk demonstrates how this theorem can be generalised successively to...
