*Henrique Bursztyn - IMPA - Brazil*

The talk will give a general introduction to Lie algebroids and Lie groupoids, mostly through examples. These objects permeate mathematics and can be naturally found in a variety of contexts (such as...

*Malwina Luczak - Queen Mary, University of London*

The stochastic logistic process is a well-known birth-and-death process, often used to model the spread of an epidemic within a population of size N. We survey some of the known results about the...

*Professor Pierre L'Ecuyer - Université de Montreal, Canada*

We consider a multicomponent system for which each component has a random state, and a monotone binary structure function of those states gives the operational status of the system: 0 if failed and 1...

*Prof. Michael Small - The University of Western Australia*

Complex Systems are everywhere - where-ever there is a large number of interacting parts where the behaviour of the entire system is governed by the manner of the interactions. Computers on the...

*Salim Meddahi - Universidad de Oviedo, Spain*

We present an analysis of an elasticity eigenvalue problem formulated in terms of the stress tensor and the rotation. This is achieved by considering a mixed variational formulation in which the...

*Oscar Blasco - Universidad de Valencia, Spain*

TBA

*Prof. Hans Mittelmann - Arizona State University*

As is well-known semidefinite relaxations of discrete optimization problems can yield excellent bounds on their solutions. We present three examples from our collaborative research. The first...

*Prof. Sergei Fedotov - The University of Manchester*

The standard models for the description of anomalous subdiffusive transport of particles are linear fractional equations.The question arises as to how to extend these equations for the nonlinear...

*Xiao Zhang - Institute of Mathematics, Chinese Academy of Sciences*

There has been a natural connection between geometry and gravity since Einstein. In this talk, we will discuss some geometrical problems relating to the positivity of the total energy-momentum in...

*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 at different stages of their PhD journey. They will each talk...
