Seminar Archive - 2009

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.

Dr. Steven Lord - Adelaide University
This talk is a continuation from the Departmental Seminar on Monday 6th April. At the start of the talk we will briefly review the contents of the first part.The first part introduced a...

Dmitriy Zanin - Flinders University
Semigroup of simultaneous contractions in L1 and L∞ is considered. In this talk we provide a criterion for the orbit of a particular element with respect to this semigroup to coincide with the closed...

Prof. Michael Cowling - Birmingham
In many cases, maps of groups to groups that send cosets (of subgroups) to cosets have strong algebraic properties. In other cases, they do not. This talk surveys what we know on this topic, and why...

Dr Mark Robinson - Garvan Institute, Sydney and Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Melbourne
Modern molecular biology data, such as microarrays, present major challenges for statistical methodology, such as the requirement of multiple testing procedures and increasingly, empirical Bayes or...

Dr. Balazs Szendroi - University of Oxford
I will describe a construction of some non-commutative algebras of geometric significance arising in recent work in supersymmetric gauge theory, defined by relations on a free quiver algebra coming...

Dr. Victor Gayral - Adelaide
In this talk, I will explain how to generalize Rieffel's deformation formula for a class of symplectic exponential solvable Lie group actions. This is based on quantization technics for rank one...

Associate Professor Andrzej Kozek - Macquarie University
Alternatives to the classic Black-Scholes and Merton approach to option pricing include formulae based on characteristic function of returns. Assuming independence of daily returns, this opens new...

Dr. Sergey Ajiev - UNSW
The anisotropic spaces of functions defined on open subsets of a Euclidean spaces of Besov and Lizorkin-Triebel type endowed with various norms and a wide class of independently generated spaces...

A/Prof. Norman Wildberger - UNSW
Einstein's theory of relativity, as interpreted by Minkowski, introduced a new type of geometry based on the quadratic form x2+y2+z2-t2. Surprisingly, in the hundred years since, pure geometry based...

Professor William Dunsmuir - UNSW
This talk is concerned with modelling multiple time series of counts in which shared regression effects need to be tested and in which there are random effects and serial dependence. Let Yjt be the...
