Professor Dominique Guegan - Professor Dominique Guegan
To model real data sets using second order stochastic processes imposes that the data sets verify the second order stationarity condition. This stationarity condition concerns the unconditional...

Prof. Vladimir Peller - Michigan State University
I am going to speak about joint results with V. I. Vasyunin. We consider the problem of finding the very best (superoptimal) approximation of a given rational matrix functions by matrix functions...

Prof. Irene Fonseca - Carnegie Mellon
Several questions in applied analysis motivated by issues in computer vision, physics, materials sciences and other areas of engineering may be treated variationally leading to higher order problems...

Professor Victor Solo - UNSW
The large data volumes now occurring in econometrics, finance and other areas have shown up inadequacies in traditional modeling and analysis methods. VAR models have too many parameters; traditional...

Professor Bruce Brown - UNSW
It is well-known that in penalty function smoothing, the choice of tuning constant is crucial to performance. However, this has to be an intrinsically difficult problem, because, typically, the...

Dr. Balazs Szendroi - University of Oxford
This will be a whirlwind tour of some topics of current interest in higher dimensional geometry and its interface with some aspects of theoretical physics. I will start with elementary properties of...

Michael Roper - UNSW
This talk investigates implied volatility in general classes of stock price models. To begin with, we take a very general view. We find that implied volatility is always, everywhere, and for every...

Prof. Shijun Zheng - Georgia Southern University
We consider Hormander type spectral multiplier problem for Schroedinger operator with a critical potential in one and three dimensions. It is shown that the multiplier operator is bounded on Lp,...

Professor Don McNeil - Macquarie University
With the rapid and widespread development of geographical information systems (GIS) and data availability from Google Earth, accompanied by the continuing increase in the power, memory, and storage...

Dr. Steven Lord - Adelaide University
The Riemann zeta function is most famous for the, as yet undtermined, zeros of its analytic continuation. Much less focus is given to the residue of the simple pole of the Riemann zeta function at z=...
