Seminar Archive - 2008

Our regular seminar program covers a broad range of topics from applied mathematics, pure mathematics and statistics. All staff and students are welcome. A complete list of past seminars can be accessed via the left-hand menu.

Ian Sloan - UNSW
In this informal talk I aim to introduce, and motivate, the celebrated inf-sup condition of finite-element analysis. The talk will require NO special knowledge of finite elements or pde, but will...

Vidar Thomee - Chalmers University of Technology
Maximum-Principles in Elliptic and Parabolic Finite Element Problems.

Jan Baldeaux - UNSW
Empirically, it has been observed that stock prices do jump and various models postulating that stock price processes are driven by jump processes have consequently been proposed in the literature....

Dr. Nicholas Cavenagh - UNSW
In this talk we mention some unexepected combinatorial equivalences of diagonally cyclic latin squares. We also outline a proof that any set of three cyclically generated transversals can be...

Prof Dr Michael Dellnitz - University of Paderborn
Over the last years so-called {\em set oriented\/} numerical methods have been developed in the context of the numerical treatment of dynamical systems. The basic idea is to cover the objects of...

Prof. Kyewon Koh Park - Ajou University
Motivated by the study of general group actions, we would like to investigate the complexity or randomness of entropy zero systems. Many entropy zero systems of general group actions have interesting...

Dr. Sergey Ajiev - UNSW
For a Banach space X, the properties of several types of X-bases for Bochner-Lebesgue spaces are considered. Special attention is paid to the expansions of functions from vector-valued Besov and...

Markus Holtz - Bonn
Financial applications based on stochastic market models often lead to the computation of high-dimensional integrals. In nearly all cases, these integrals cannot be solved analytically so that...

Michael Griebel - Bonn
High-dimensional problems and data often live in a lower-dimensional subspace or manifold with relatively small intrinsic dimension. In such cases it is possible to break the curse of dimensionality...

M.J.D. Powell - University of Cambridge
Some leading experts in optimization take the view that convergence theory is necessary for the development of a successful new algorithm. The speaker has found, however, that this view has two...
