*Quoc Thong Le Gia - UNSW*

In this talk, I will describe my encounter with big data sets when doing research in computational methods for mathematical problems defined on the unit sphere. Examples are data sets that describe...

*Bryan Wang - ANU*

The Moduli spaces that parametrise the finite energy solution to elliptic partial differential equations from physics provide deep information for geometry and physics at both small and large...

*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: Fooling the masses: Reproducibility in high performance computing

*Marien A Graham - University of Pretoria, South Africa*

Several aspects of univariate distribution-free / nonparametric statistical quality control techniques are considered. First, a nonparametric Shewhart-type Phase I control chart for monitoring the...

*Ming Yen Cheng - National Taiwan University*

Multiparameter local likelihood models have been accepted as a flexible tool for modeling the relationship between responses and covariates, and the corresponding methodology has been used to analyze...

*Leonardo Colzani - University of Milano-Bicocca*

We study the error for quasi Monte Carlo quadrature rules on metric measure spaces adapted to a decomposition of the space into disjoint subsets. We consider both the error for a single given...

*Geoffrey Vasil - University of Sydney*

This talk will explore the strange behaviour of magnetically conducting fluids. Specifically, I will discuss an exact correspondence between an important instability in astrophysical systems, and the...

*Prof Georg Gottwald - University of Sydney*

Whereas diffusion limits of stochastic multi-scale systems have a long and successful history, the case of constructing stochastic parametrizations of chaotic deterministic systems has been much less...

*Catherine Greenhill - UNSW*

The Potts model is a statistical physics model of magnetism closely related to the Tutte polynomial of a graph. The state space is the set of all maps from the vertex set of a graph to a finite set...

*Kate Juschenko - Northwestern University*

I will discuss a theorem on amenability which unifies many known technical proofs of amenability to the one common proof. It also produces examples of groups for which amenability was an open...
