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.

Kirsten Vo-Phuoc - UNSW
Gauge theories are the underpinning theories that we use to understand the fundamental forces and how they interact with particles. Originally constructed under physical concepts and notation and now...

Nicholas Bouzanis - UNSW
In this talk I present some basic results on double operator integrals in the finite dimensional setting using matrices. We then see a result proved by Alan Mcintosh in his paper "Counterexample to a...

Steve Siu - UNSW
Often given a topological space one can assign to it an algebraic invariant which gives us information on the space. One well known example is the fundamental group. In this talk I will present...

Peter Ayre - UNSW
Nearly half a century ago M.G. Krein made an elusive conjecture on the behaviour of operator-valued Lipschitz functions. It was only very recently that a resolution to his conjecture was found in the...

Matt Wand - University of Technology, Sydney
Semiparametric regression is an extension of regression that permits incorporation of flexible functional relationshipsusing basis functions, such as splines and wavelets, and penalties and is now...

Ken Dykema - Texas A&M University
In classical matrix theory, a matrix can be written in upper triangular form with help of its invariant subspaces. A similar result, due to Ringrose in 1962, holds for compact operators on infinite...

Richard A. Davis - Columbia University
This paper studies theory and inference related to a class of time series models that incorporates nonlinear dynamics. It is assumed that the observations follow a one-parameter exponential family of...

Michael Whittaker - University of Wollongong
A self-similar action (G,X) consists of a group G along with a self-similar action of the group on a rooted tree. Self-similarity is displayed by the action of the group acting on all levels of the...

Domingo Gomez-Perez - University of Cantabria, Spain
Pseudorandom sequences are used in many fields such that simulation, cryptography, etc. Normally, they are assocciated with a Monte Carlo rule, where the elements of the sequence should "appear" to...

Robert Coquereaux - CNRS
Using representation theory of affine Lie algebras, or of quantum groups at roots of unity, one constructs modular fusion categories that have been used for quite a while in various fields of...
