*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...
