Prof. Mark Kisin of the University of Chicago will present a lecture in the 2007 Australian Mathematical Society's Mahler Lecture series.Title: Modular elliptic curves and Fermat's last theoremDate: Thursday, 20 September 2007Time: 3:00 pmVenue: OMB...> read more

Negative type inequalities arose classically in connection with the study of isometric embeddings. Prime movers were Karl Menger and Isaac Schoenberg. More recently, negative type inequalities have been studied in relation to certain hard,...> read more

We put forward a tamed scheme for 3D Navier-Stokes equation, and prove the existence of a unique smooth solution to the determinstic and stochastic tamed 3D Navier-Stokes equation in the whole space as well as in the periodic boundary case. The main...> read more

I will introduce the python programming language in the context of scientific applications, emphasising the numpy and matplotlib packages, that together provide a computing environment similar to matlab. Time permitting, I will also discuss ways to...> read more

We will first introduce and justify the classical definition of viscosity solution for the first order Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation in a Hilbert space given in [CL90, CL91] and extending the definition given in [CL83] for the finite dimensional...> read more

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a particle accelerator located at CERN, near Geneva, is (currently!) expected to start operation in early 2008. It is located in an underground tunnel 27km in circumference, and when fully operational, will be the...> read more

Han Zhang will run a seminar on manifold-valued Levy process. In this talk, Han will focus on the case where M is a Riemannian manifold and use harmonic analysis techniques to present a levy-Khinchine formula on the manifold.> read more
