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.

Melvin Faierman - UNSW
It was shown by Seeley that associated with a parameter-elliptic boundary problem involving a system of differential operators of homogeneous type there was associated an analytic semigroup. This...

Dr John Ormerod - University of Sydney
We develop three approaches to the selection of linear models using mean field variational Bayes (MFVB) approximations. These include a variational information criterion (VIC) sharing the optimality...

Ferdinand Verhulst - University of Utrecht
Henri Poincaré (1854-1912) was one of the most prolific scientific authors of all times. Born and educated in Nancy heshowed already very young a wide interest in literature, natural phenomena,...

Prof. V.V. Sokolov - Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics, Russia
We consider associative products compatible with the standard matrix multiplication. Any such a product generates a Lax representation for an integrable ODE system. We construct a class of...

Richard Melrose - M.I.T.
I will describe the successive case of orientation, spin andstring structures on a compact manifold and in particular how the in the latter case this can be realized in terms of objects on the loop...

Prof Bimal Sinha - Univeristy of Maryland
Most survey organizations and statistical agencies while releasing microdata  to the public use some statistical disclosure limitation (SDL) methods to protect disclosure risk. Commonly used methods...

Dean Garden - UNSW
Suppose that we have a multivariate polynomial f defined over a finite field with q elements. We can count the number of roots of f over finite field extensions containing q2 elements, q3 elements...

Joel Beeren - UNSW
Integer factorisation is one of the most important problems in number theory and computer science. In 1985, Lenstra proposed a factorisation algorithm using elliptic curves, which is currently the...

Dr Simon Kwok - University of Sydney
In this talk, I consider a nonparametric Granger causality test for continuous time point process data. Unlike popular Granger causality tests with strong parametric assumptions on discrete time...

Henning Haahr Andersen - Aarhus University
Let Uq denote the quantum group corresponding to a simple complex Lie algebra g. This talk will focus on some of the important classes of Uq-modules with highest weights, e.g. simple modules, Verma...
