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.

Qiying Wang - University of Sydney
For a certain class of martingales, the convergence to mixture normal distribution is established under the convergence in distribution for the conditional variance. This is less restrictive in...

Gareth Peters - UNSW
We consider a statistical model for pairs of traded assets, based on a Cointegrated Vector Auto Regression (CVAR) Model. We extend standard CVAR models to incorporate estimation of model parameters...

Prof. Jonathan Brundan - University of Oregon
The representation theory of the symmetric group has been studied intensively for over a century but is still full of surprises. I will talk about the recent discovery of interesting Z-gradings on...

Dr. 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...

Christopher Pardy - Faculty of Medicine, UNSW
Experimental work in genetics creates large quantities of high-dimensional data. This includes continuously-measured gene expression levels, discrete single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and...

Dr. 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...

Dr. Guo Hua Zhang - UNSW/Fudan University
By a dynamical system we mean a group of homeomorphisms over a compact metric space. Given a dynamical system, people are interested in the study of its complexity. In this talk, we focus on the...

Kin Yau Alex Wong - University of Hong Kong
Survival analysis with a cured subgroup has been of growing interest. It has practical applications in various fields, for example, in cancer studies, some patients will have a relapse after the...

Chin Pin Wong - University of New South Wales
The Classical Khintchine Inequality yields the remarkable corollary that for $p\in [1,\infty)$, the Rademacher system in $L_p[0,1]$ is equivalent to the sequence of its disjoint translates in $L_2...

Ross C. McPhedran - University of Sydney
I will discuss how angular lattice sums arise in physical problems, and why their properties may be of interest to mathematicians. Specifically, I will identify a class of such sums which have been...
