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.

Mei Si - Shanghai Jiaotong University
We start by reviewing some basic material of the cyclotomic Birman-Murakami-Wenzl algebras and give a necessary and sufficient condition for such algebras being semisimple over an arbitrary field. ...

Edward McDonald - UNSW
In 1994 Alain Connes introduced a ``quantised" calculus, based on operator theoretic expressions which play roles analogous to derivatives and differentials in ordinary calculus. Quantised calculus...

Mumtaz Hussain - University of Newcastle
The well known theorems of Khintchine and Jarnik in metric Diophantine approximation provide a comprehensive description of the measure theoretic properties of real numbers approximable by rational...

Dr. Byron Jacobs - University of the Witwatersrand
  This body of work examines the plausibility of applying partial differential equations and time-fractional partial differential equations to images. The standard diffusion equation is coupled with...

Assoc/Prof Ad Ridder - Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
In this talk we consider rare events in Markovian queues with time-varying arrival rates (nonhomogeneous Poisson arrivals) and time-varying service rates. These rare events comprise level crossings...

Ana Zumalacarregui Perez - UNSW
 We will overview several problems related to Sidon sets and additive bases in different contexts (when G is a finite group, the set of integers or the set of natural numbers). The aim of this talk...

Edward McDonald - UNSW
In 1994 Alain Connes introduced a ``quantised" calculus, based on operator theoretic expressions which play roles analogous to derivatives and differentials in ordinary calculus. Quantised calculus...

Prof. V. Jeyakumar - University of New South Wales
In this seminar I will talk about semi-definite relaxation approaches for examining and solving classes of difficult global polynomial optimization problems. I will also discuss the associated...

Prof Ross Maller - Australian National University
Joint work with Tiandong Wang (Cornell), Yuguang Fan (Melb.U.), Philip S. Griffin (Syracuse) and Alex Szimayer (Hamburg). I'll report on some work in which we compare two types of reinsurance: excess...

Professor James Franklin (speaking in Blackheath, Blue Mountains) - UNSW
In mathematics, you sit in the armchair and think (like philosophy), but you prove results that everyone accepts (unlike philosophy), and they apply to the real world (like physics, but without the...
