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...

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...
