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.

Ruth Corran
I will speak about joint work with Michel Broué and Jean Michel (https://arxiv.org/abs/1704.03779) which is motivated by questions coming from theSpetses project. For $G$  a (complex) reflection group defined on a vector space $V$ over a number...

Dmitri Nikshych
A classical theorem of Joyal and Street establishes an equivalence between braided categorical groups and quadratic forms.  This  brings an important geometric insight into the theory of braided fusion categories: one can  treat them as non-...

James Hortle
In this talk we discuss the potential of two machine learning techniques (support vector machines and neural networks) in aiding medical diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. In particular, we see whether these two techniques are capable of...

Christopher Rock
Four-dimensional cone beam computed tomography (4D CBCT) is a medical imaging technology used in diagnosing and visualising lung cancer, and is used as part of radiotherapy. 4D CBCT scanners capable of varying their image acquisition behaviour are...

Scott Maxwell
Scott Maxwell from Ed Stem will give a demonstration of updated features  of the integrated discussion platform developed for use in STEM courses. Here in the UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics we are considering trialling the use of this...

Adrian Miranda
Category theory allows a precise formulation of relationships between structures that emerge from seemingly different contexts across mathematics. One would like to study not just the properties of one particular group, for example, but of the...

Peng Gao
The density conjecture of Katz and Sarnak suggests that the distribution of zeros near 1/2 of a family of $L$-functions is the same as that of eigenvalues near 1 of a corresponding classical compact group. This has been confirmed for various...
