Seminar Archive - 2013

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.

Prof. Michael Ng - Hong Kong Baptist University
In this talk, we survey recent developments of computational methods for image recovery. The methods include total variation, sparsity, and non-convex optimization. Some theoretical results will be...

Dr. Carola-Bibiane Schoenlieb - Cambridge University
Restoring the original image contents from distorted measurements is one of the most important tasks in image processing. It comprises the enhancement and reconstruction of images distorted by noise...

A/Prof DuBois Bowman - Emory University (Atlanta, USA)
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies have been used to characterize local properties of behavior-related neural activity and to investigate regional associations in brain activity....

Andy Hammerlindl - UNSW and University of Sydney
Suppose we have a distribution, a subbundle of the tangent bundle of a manifold, and we want to know if it is integrable, that is, if it is tangent to a foliation on the manifold.  If the...

A/Prof Nicolas Privault - Nanyang Technological University (Singapore)
This talk will start with a review of the framework of stochastic analysis, based on mutually adjoint gradient and divergence operators on a probability space, in relation with the stochastic...

Prof. Robert Schaback - University of Göttingen, Germany
The roadmap of the talk is1. All linear numerical methods for solving linear PDE problems using finitely many given data can be reformulated as linear discrete recovery formulas for solution values...

Weizhu Bao - National University of Singapore
In this talk, I begin with a brief derivation of the nonlinear Schrodinger/Gross-Pitaevskii equations (NLSE/GPE) from Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC) and/or nonlinear optics. Then I will present some...

Several PhD Students - UNSW
This seminar will deliver answers to those who want to know what a Mathematics PhD is, and how to get one.There will be several speakers, all of whom are close to submitting their PhD. They will each...

Robert Schaback - Goettingen
The talk describes PDE solution techniques like finite element, meshless or spectral methods from the viewpoint of function approximation. In particular, their error is shown to be dominated by the...

Michael Reynolds - UNSW
We will discuss the substantial mathematical, computational, historical and philosophical aspects of this celebrated and controversial theorem. Much of this talk should be accessible to...
