Prof. Tuomas Hytonen - Helsinki University
As an intermediate step in the development of a noncommutative Calderon-Zygmund theory, J. Parcet (JFA, 2009) established a new "pseudo-localization principle" of classical singular integral...

Ed Saff - Vanderbilt University
For a compact set A in Euclidean space we shall investigate the asymptotic behavior of optimal (and near optimal) N-point configurations that minimize the Riesz s-energy (corresponding to the...

Abstract: For a compact set A in Euclidean space we shall investigate the asymptotic behavior of optimal (and near optimal) N-point configurations that minimize the Riesz s-energy (corresponding to...

Prof. Tuomas Hytonen - University of Helsinki
A standard tool in mathematical analysis is the refining sequence of partitions of the Euclidean space into cubes with side-lengths equal to powers of two, the so-called dyadic cubes. Associated to...

Dr Gab Abramowitz - UNSW
There are good reasons to assume that the collection of climate models we use for projection do not represent independent estimates of the climate change problem. Research groups share literature,...

Eckhard Platen - UTS
This lecture introduces into the benchmark approach, which provides a general framework for financial market modelling. It allows for a unified treatment of derivative pricing, portfolio optimization...

Prof. Melvin Faierman - UNSW
This talk is concerned with a boundary problem defined over a bounded region in an Euclidean space, and in particular is devoted to the establishment of a priori estimates for solutions of a...

Prof. Stephan Tillmann - University of Queensland
The complexity of a 3-manifold is the minimum number of tetrahedra in a triangulation of the manifold. It was defined and first studied by Matveev in 1990. The complexity is generally difficult to...

Dr Mark Tanaka - UNSW
Molecular techniques are used to characterise the population genetics of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, a pathogen that kills 1.6 million people per year. Mathematical models and statistical methods can...

Dr. Sergey Ajiev - UNSW
Some problems, for example, in PDE can be reduced to the invertibility of a closed operator with a non-trivial and non-complemented kernel defined, for example, on a Sobolev space. We construct...
