Arnaud Brothier - University of New South Wales
The Thompson group is the group of homeomorphisms of [0,1] that are piecewise linear with slopes a power of 2 and breakpoints a dyadic rational. It is one of the most studied discrete group which...

Anita Liebenau - University of New South Wales
Ramsey theory connects several areas of mathematics including graph theory, number theory, discrete geometry, and many more. Its central idea is that total chaos is impossible. Erdos and Szekeres...

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...

Leonard Cadilhac - Université de Caen Normandie
 The Khintchine inequalities first appeared as a result about Rademacher variables in probability theory and have been the object of a rich literature due, in particular, to their central role in...

Zahra Afsar - University of Sydney
Given a quasi-lattice ordered group $(G, P)$ and a compactly aligned product system $X$ of essential $C^*$--correspondences over the monoid P, we show that there is a bijection between the gauge-...

Martijn Caspers - Delft University of Technology
In their fundamental paper Ozawa and Popa introduced the notion of strongly solid von Neumann algebras: the von Neumann algebra generated by the normalizer of any amenable von Neumann subalgebra is ...

Pierre Lafaye de Micheaux, John Steele, Chris Tisdell, Jonathan Kress, Laure Helme-Guizon, Daniel Mansfield and Donna Salopek - School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW Sydney
What is the best way to go about preparing new notes for a maths or stats course?  And all the other aspects of preparing for a new course? What is a good technology? How to manage time? All of us...

Arnaud Brothier - University of New South Wales
Jones subfactor theory studies inclusion of von Neumann algebras that are objects coming from functional analysis. It is connected to many area of mathematics such as tensor categories, knot theory,...
