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 James Flegal - University of California, Riverside
Calculating a Monte Carlo standard error (MCSE) is an important step in the statistical analysis of the simulation output obtained from a Markov chain Monte Carlo experiment. For example, it can be...

Ivan Graham - University of Bath
Hybrid numerical-asymptotic methods for high frequency acoustic scattering.

Dr Uri Keich - The University of Sydney
The identification of transcription factor binding sites is an important step in understanding the regulation of gene expression. To address this need, many motif-finding tools have been described...

Rob Scheichl - University of Bath
Multilevel iterative methods and upscaling.

Prof. Alan McIntosh - CMA, ANU
About 1960 Tosio Kato, during his investigation of the evolution of physical systems, was led to pose a key question about the square root of non-symmetric divergence form elliptic partial...

Dr Conrad Burden - ANU
A common problem faced by biologists is finding a close match in a database to a given DNA or protein sequence. This is used, for example, to identify homologous genes or proteins in a particular...

Professor Louise Ryan - CSIRO, Sydney
We discuss the use of a simple algorithm that facilitates the analysis of very large hierarchically-based datasets. The method is applied to the spatio-temporal analysis of the association between...

Gareth Peters - UNSW
This talk presents a novel Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling methodology for Bayesian Cointegrated Vector Auto Regression (CVAR) models. The focus will be on two novel extensions to the sampling...

Dr. Nurulla Azamov - Flinders University
In this talk I shall discuss a new approach to scattering theory of self-adjoint operators by self-adjoint trace class perturbations. It is based on my paper "Absolutely continuous and singular...

Prof. Zdzislaw Brzezniak - York, UK
In this talk we will consider the three-dimensional Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation perturbed by a multiplicative space-dependent noise. This equation, fundamental for the theory of magnetic...
