*Mark Watkins - University of Sydney*

In 1952, Weil wrote a short paper describing how to interpret Jacobi sums in terms of Hecke Grossencharacters, which in modern terms might be termed a reciprocity law. Grossencharacters are easier to...

*Josef Dick - UNSW*

Classical discrepancy theory deals with distributing $N$ points in the $s$-dimensional unit cube as evenly as possible. The discrepancy function of the point set measures the deviation of the...

*Geoffrey Vasil - University of Sydney*

In spite of outward appearances, many of the partial differential equations used in contemporary fluid dynamics, and the methods used to solve them, contain enough similarities that one may consider...

*Dr Ali Eshragh - University of Newcastle*

In this talk, we deliver our theoretical and numerical results on the Fisher Information for the birth rate of a partially-observable simple birth process involving n observations. Our goal is to...

*Arnab Saha - ANU*

We develop the theory of $\delta$-characters for Drinfeld modules that is analogous to differential characters for abelian varieties due to Fuchs and Manin. We replace the notion of derivation for...

*Ramanan Rajkumar - UNSW*

We discuss the first case of Kummer's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem for $\mathbb{Q}$-regular primes a criterion for testing regularity. We show how to extend his partial proof to the Gaussian...

*Fadi Antown - UNSW Mathematics and Statistics*

This is a final presentation of an Honours research project supervised by Gary Froyland.

*Ke Ren - UNSW Mathematics and Statistics*

This is a final presentation of an Honours research project supervised by Guoyin Li.
Multi-objective optimization is an area of multiple criteria decision making which concerned with mathematical...

*Tyrone Liang - UNSW Mathematics and Statistics*

This is a final presentation of an Honours research project supervised by Chris Angstmann and Bruce Henry.

*Gurtek Gill - UNSW Mathematics and Statistics*

This is a final presentation of an Honours research project supervised by Peter Straka and Bruce Henry.
