*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...
