Wadim Zudilin - Radboud University Nijmegen (Netherlands)
I report on a recent considerable improvement of the asymptotic lower bound on the number of irrational odd zeta values as originally given in the Ball–Rivoal theorem (2000). The proof is based on a...

Dmitry Badziahin - University of Sydney
We will consider the following question: what values irrationality exponents of Mahler numbers can take? For much smaller set of automatic numbers it was initially asked by Adamczewski and Rivoal...

Dr Chayne Planiden - University of Woolongong
The VU-algorithm is a superlinearly convergent method for minimising nonsmooth convex functions. At each iteration, the algorithm separates the space into the V-space and the orthogonal U-space, such...
