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.

Dr. Inken Olthoff - Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB)
As the influence of renewable energy grows, also the flexible storage of energy in batteries gains in importance. One aspect is constructing battery load schedules, which provide charging and...

Werner Scheinhardt - University of Twente
We are interested in estimating, through simulation, the probability of entering a rare failurestate before a regeneration state. Since this probability is typically small, we apply...

Trevor Hastie (via Access Grid) - Stanford University
In a statistical world faced with an explosion of data, regularization has become an important ingredient. In many problems, we have many more variables than observations, and the lasso penalty and...

Professor Raymond J. Carroll - Texas A&M University, USA and University of Technology, Sydney
In a series of papers on Lidar data, magically good classification rates are claimed once data are deconvolved and a dimension reduction technique applied. The latter can certainly be useful, but it...

Kassem Mustapha - King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Dhahran
In this talk, some features of the DG and hybridizable  DG (HDG)  methods will be discussed first. We propose a time-stepping DG method for the numerical solution of fractional sub-diffusion...

Boris Lerner - Nagoya University
An important class of graded algebras called "weighted projective lines" were first introduced by Geigle and Lenzing in 1985 as a tool for classifying hereditary (dimension 1) abelian categories with...

Chris Rodger - Auburn University
A G-decomposition of H is a partition P(E) of the edges of H into sets, each of which induces a copy of the graph G. A G-decomposition of H is said to be gregarious with respect to a partition P(V)...

Christian Gerhards - UNSW and University of Kaiserslautern
Global satellite data is useful for the approximation of the lower degree spherical harmonic contributions of the crustal magnetic or the gravity field. If one is interested in higher degree...

Jérôme Droniou - Monash University
Many models of flows in porous media, involved for example in oil recovery, carbon sequestration or underground water engineering, involve Partial Differential Equations with diffusion terms. Real-...

Francis Hui - University of New South Wales
Modeling multi-species datasets is a challenging statistical problem, due to the high-dimensionality and sparsity of such datasets. In this talk, I consider a recently developed method called Species...
