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.

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...
