*Prof. Samir Adly - Université de Limoges, France*

This talk is devoted to the study of the Aubin/Lipschitz-like property and the isolated calmness of a particular non-monotone generalized equation arising in electrical engineering. The variational...

*Christoph Schwab - SAM, ETH Zurich*

We survey recent results on high order QMC integration rules for direct and inverse problems of countably-parametric operator equations with smooth parametric dependence.We discuss aspects on their...

*Francesco Pappalardi - Roma Tre University*

After reviewing classical results on average versions of Artin Conjecture for primitive roots mainly due to Goldfeld, Stephens and Warlimont, we will adapt the known techniques of exponential sums...

*Johann Brauchart - Technische Universität Graz*

Fibonacci lattices provide good QMC methods in the unit square. Their spherical counterparts are less well understood but have good numerical properties. In this talk we present recent progress in...

*Stuart Anderson - UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics*

It is a common feature among remote sensing technologies that very considerable progress can be made with relatively simple physical and mathematical models. This is often fortuitous, as without...

*Prof Arnaud Doucet - Oxford University*

The Metropolis–Hastings algorithm allows one to sample asymptotically from any probability distribution π that admits a density w.r.t to a reference measure which can be evaluated pointwise up to a...

*Amin Coja-Oghlan - Goethe University*

Let d be a fixed positive number. It is well-known that locally around a randomly chosen vertex, the random graph G(n,d/n) is merely a tree with high probability. Nonetheless, the chromatic number...

*Robert Scheichl - University of Bath*

We address the prohibitively large cost of Markov chain Monte Carlo for uncertainty quantification in large-scale PDE applications with high dimensional parameter spaces. We propose a new multilevel...

*David Evans - Cardiff University*

The most basic structure of chiral conformal field theory (CFT) is the Verlinde ring. This describes the primary fields and mathematically can be represented through a modular tensor category which...

*Stephen Harrap - Durham University*

When attacking various difficult problems in the field of Diophantine approximation the application of certain topological games has proven extremely fruitful in recent times due to the amenable...
