Dr Paramita Saha Chaudhuri - Duke University (USA)
Cancer patients, chronic kidney disease (CDK) patients, and subjects infected with HIV are commonly monitored over time using biomarkers that represent key health status indicators. Furthermore,...

Mr Ashish Goyal - School of Mathematics and Statistics
Hepatitis D virus (HDV) is interesting in that it hijacks the machinery of another virus, hepatitis B virus, to replicate in the liver of dually infected individuals. It results in higher mortality...

Peter Donovan - UNSW
A sequence of remarkably successful calculations has shown that the first 100,000,000,000 zeros of the zeta function zeta(s) in the upper half of the strip 0<Re(s)<1 have real part one half. ...

Dr. Jean Bernard Lasserre - Laboratoire d’Analyse et d’Architecture des Systèmes (LAAS), Toulouse, France
Roughly speaking, the Generalized Problem of Moments (GPM) is an infinite-dimensional linear optimization problem (i.e., an infinite dimensional linear program) on a convex set of measures whose...

Alexey Chernov - Hausdorff Center for Mathematics and Institute for Numerical Simulation, Bonn
The Multilevel Monte Carlo Method is a recently established approach for uncertainty propagation for problems with random parameters. We present some new convergence estimates for MLMC and...

Duong Pham - Hausdorff Center for Mathematics and Institute for Numerical Simulation, Bonn
We introduce and analyse a sparse spectral discretization scheme based on spherical harmonics for elliptic problems with random input data on a spheroid. Problems of this type appear in...

Prof David Balding - University College London (UK)
The connections between the genetic similarity of pairs of individuals and their phenotypic similarity has been at the heart of quantitative genetics for over a century. Until recently there was in...

Pinhas Grossman - UNSW
Groups can be studied through their representations as symmetries of vector spaces. The collection of representations of a given group forms a monoidal category. Fusion categories are monoidal...

Prof. Fazal Mahomed - University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa
A complete invariant characterization of scalar linear (1+1) parabolic equations under equivalence transformations for all the four canonical forms are determined. Firstly semi-invariants under...

Krzysztof Jarosz - Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
Automatic Continuity is a unique area which combines in an intricate way elements of analysis, algebra, and topology. We ask whether if a map T from X to Y satisfies an algebraic condition that...
