Seminar Archive - 2011

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.

Adam Rennie - ANU
Elliptic operators on noncompact manifolds typically do not define Fredholm operators on associated L2 [0, 1) spaces. This means that the index of such an operator is not defined. Not to be put off...

Steven Lord - Adelaide
The canonical trace of nuclear operators, which is the extension of the matrix trace in finite linear algebra to the infinite dimensional linear algebra of Hilbert space, is often considered the only...

Prof. Christoph Schwab - ETH, Zurich
For initial boundary value problems of the linear wave equation whose coefficients depend on countably many random parameters e.g. via a Karhunen-Loeve or a wavelet expansion,we show analyticity of...

Daniel Chan - UNSW
The theory of orders has been variously described as a form of non-commutative arithmetic or non-commutative algebraic geometry. Examples of orders include group rings over rings of integers in the...

Prof. Bill Moran - University of Melbourne
University teachers tend to treat their students as their "academic children". Gavin was my academic older brother. This is a unique and very sad occasion for me and I feel privileged to be asked to...

Michael Gnewuch - Christian Albrechts University, Kiel
It is well-known that many notions of geometrical discrepancy are closely related to the worst-case error of numerical multivariate integration (which we want to call "numerical discrepancy") on...

Professor Paul Garthwaite - The Open University (UK)
Statistics rarely tries to draw conclusions from a single individual. However, in neuropsychology an individual with brain injury may display unusual combinations of abilities that give insight into...

Dr. Catherine Greenhill - University of New South Wales
The problem of generating a random element from the set of all labelled simple graphs with a given degree sequence has many applications. I will take a not-so-random walk through the history of this...

Assoc. Professor Kanta Naito - Shimane University (Japan)
Recently, there has been renewed widespread interest in supervised learning in regard to regression, classification and pattern recognition.Boosting has been known as a promising technique with...

Stephen Maher - UNSW
Stuttgart, Germany, 42nd Street, New York City, and Cheonggyecheon, Seoul are all very interesting places on their own. Through the use of mathematics these places have been shown to share a common...
