Seminar Archive - 2015

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.

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.
