Seminar Archive - 2014

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.

Andrew Francis - University of Western Sydney
The genome of a bacterial organism consists of a single circular chromosome that can undergo changes at several different levels.  There is the very local level of errors that are introduced through...

David Jordan - University of Edinburgh
Quantum groups are not really groups, and are only a little bit quantum.  What they in fact provide for us is a beautiful and compact framework for tweaking the representation theory of classical...

Pierre Lafaye de Micheaux - Université de Montréal
  We were interested in the construction of multidimensionnal Independent Component Analysis (ICA) methods to be applied to fMRI data. ICA usually relies on the minimization of some measure of...

Prof. Liqun Qi - The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Positive definite matrices and positive semi-definite matrices are very important concepts of matrix analysis in both theory and applications. In the recent decade, these two concepts have been...

Norman Wildberger - UNSW
Einstein's 1905 Special Relativity (SR) is a foundational theory of 20th century physics. While perhaps unintuitive and certainly surprising initially, it has a beauty and elegance which connects to...

Bill McLean - UNSW
We apply the piecewise constant, discontinuous Galerkin method to discretize a fractional diffusion equation with respect to time. Using Laplace transform techniques, we show that the method is first...

Nick Cavenagh - University of Waikato
A graph G decomposes into a graph H is there is a set of subgraphs of G, each isomorphic to H, which partition the edges of G. Even if H has as few as three edges, the question, ``Does G decompose...

David Yost - Federation University Ballarat
We give precise lower bounds on the number of edges of an arbitraryd-dimensional polytope with v vertices, for an interesting range ofvalues of v and d. This problem was solved for simplicial...

David Bailey and Jonathan Borwein (via Access Grid) - Lawrence Berkeley Lab (retired) and UC Davis, University of Newcastle
AMSI AGR National Seminar hosted by University of Newcaslte (CARMA). For details see AMSI AGR National Seminar: Big data computing: Science and pseudoscience

Prof Valentin Patilea - CREST, Ensai, France
We consider regression models with a response variable taking values in a Hilbert space, of finite or infinite dimension, and hybrid covariates. That means two sets of regressors are allowed, one of...
