The popular course MATH3411 Information, Codes, and Ciphers was this previous term given a light Digital Uplift. In this talk, I will describe what this actually means, what the processes were, and what the outcomes were (and are). I will also...

Szemer\'edi's theorem says that subsets of the integers with positive density contain $k$-term arithmetic progressions ($k$APs). We investigate the probability threshold for which $k$APs are guaranteed when the set of allowed common differences in...

… turn to square-free numbers! These include the primes as well as other numbers that are ‘not too composite’. If the primes are giving us grief, then we can content ourselves with solving questions on square-free numbers. This is a longer, more...

Simos Meintanis
There exist a number of tests for assessing the nonparametric heteroskedastic location-scale assumption. Here we consider a goodness-of-fit test for the more general hypothesis of the validity of this model under a parametric functional...

Mahadevan Ganesh
A natural medium for  wave propagation comprises a  coupled bounded heterogeneous region  and an  unbounded homogeneous free-space. Frequency-domain wave propagation models in the medium, such as the variable coefficient Helmholtz equation,  include...
