Seminar Archive - 2012

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.

Ernst P Stephan - Institute for Applied Mathematics, Leibniz Universtät, Hannover
We analyse an exterior, elliptic stochastic contact problem where the Neumann data and the gap function are stochastic. We give a mixed formulation for the displacement and the Lagrange multipier...

Norman Wildberger - UNSW
Triangle geometry has seen an explosion of activity in the last few decades, but primarily in the Euclidean setting.This talk will overview a few interesting results from the classical theory, and...

Benoit Liquet - INSERM, Victor Segalen University, Bordeaux 2 (France)
The talk discusses Akaike and likelihood crossvalidation criteria for model/estimator choice. After a presentation of the main concept on model selection, we will focus on the choice of estimators in...

Dr Robert Nordon - Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, UNSW
Cell proliferation and differentiation is described by a multi-type branching process, a probability model that defines the inheritance of cell type. Cell type is defined by i) a repression index...

Prof. Philip J. Boland - University College Dublin
William Sealy Gosset (alias ``Student") was an immensely talented scientist with many interests, but he is best known for his contributions to modern statistics. Born in 1876 in Canterbury, England,...

Pr Jeremy Taylor - University of Michigan
Patients with localized prostate cancer are frequently treated with radiation therapy. Following treatment PSA measurements are typically obtained at regular intervals for the purpose of monitoring...

Daniel Mansfield - UNSW
Fermat's Last Tango was inspired by the achievements of Princeton University Mathematics Professor Andrew Wiles, who in June 1993 presented a proof to the theorem first set forth by French...

Michael Cowling - UNSW
One of the reasons why the Fourier transformation is a useful tool is that it converts differentiation (hard to understand) to multiplication (easier to understand). Many of the basic proofs of...

Pr Zdzislaw Brzezniak - The University of York (UK)
This talk will be about the existence of weak solutions (and  uniqueness in the case of strong solutions) to the stochastic Landau-Lifshitz equations on  multi (one)-dimensional spatial domains. It...
