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.

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...
