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.

Andrew Hone
Three-term linear recurrences are a central part of the theory of continued fractions, in the description of convergents, as well as being a feature of orthogonal polynomials. In this talk we consider some examples of discrete dynamical systems...

Matteo Bordignon
The aim of this talk is to improve the upper bound for the exceptional zeroes of Dirichlet L-functions. We do this by improving on explicit estimates for $L'(\sigma,\chi)$ for $\sigma$ close to unity.

Andrew Eberhard
When restricted to a subspace, a nonsmooth function can be differentiable. This can be characterised for convex functions via a decomposition of the subdifferential giving rise to two subspaces: the $\mathcal{U}$, over which a special Lagrangian...

Dhruv Mubayi
After a brief introduction to classical hypergraph Ramsey numbers, I will focus on the following problem. What is the minimum $t$ such that there exist arbitrarily large $k$-uniform hypergraphs whose independence number is at most polylogarithmic...

Kam Hung Yau
The Goldbach conjecture states that all even integer greater than 2 is a sum of two primes. Currently we do not have sufficient tools to prove this conjecture but we can obtain the following relaxation: Uniformly for small $q$ and $(a, q) = 1$, we...
