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 Andrew Robinson - University of Melbourne
The application of statistical thinking to risk-assessment in the context of quarantine inspection provides a rich and satisfying set of tools for problem solving. We develop a statistical framework...

A/Prof. Guo Hua Zhang - Fudan University and UNSW
By a topological dynamical system we mean a compact metric space equipped with a self-homeomorphism. To understand the complexity of a given topological dynamical system, people are interested in the...

Prof. Gus Lehrer - Sydney
Classical invariant theory, which has applications in diverse areas, such as Atiyah-Singer index theory, has been studied in 3 contexts, which are related in various ways. Despite its long history,...

A/Prof. Guo Hua Zhang - Fudan University and UNSW
By a topological dynamical system we mean a compact metric space equipped with a self-homeomorphism. To understand the complexity of a given topological dynamical system, people are interested in the...

Ian Sloan - UNSW
Talk on multiscale approximation on the sphere.

Andy Wathen - Oxford University
This will be a survey talk suitable for graduate students and non-specialists.

Prof. Donald Lutz - San Diego State University
Asymptotic integration of differential equations means finding closed form expressions for solutions up to asymptotically constant multiples. A framework for doing this is the so-called "method of...

Philip Hall - Imperial College, London
The equations governing turbulent flows are known, but they defy mathematical and  numerical attacks because of their complexity and because the computer capacity required to do so  far exceeds that...

Nathan Pearce - UNSW
Model validation involves testing a parametric model against a nonparametric alternative. Making use of recent developments in Machine Learning literature, we provide a test without the need for...

Dominik Schmid - Helmholtz Center Munich
Talk on Scattered Data Approximation on the Rotation Group.
