*Pedram Hekmati - University of Adelaide*

Representations of compact Lie groups on complex vector spaces are well-understood and their classification dates back to the fundamental work of Cartan and Weyl. In this talk, I will discuss a...

*Christophe Doche - Macquarie University*

A Double-Base Chain (DBC) uses two bases, 2 and 3, in order to represent an integer. This concept is useful in Cryptography in the context of a scalar multiplication performed on an elliptic curve....

*Assoc/Prof Jean Yang - University of Sydney*

With the advancement of many high-throughput biotechnologies, an interest of many researchers has been to utilise multiple high-throughput data sources, together with clinical data, to improve the...

*David Ridout - ANU*

One of the core consistency requirements of two-dimensional conformally invariant quantum field theory involves the modular group SL(2;Z). This leads to many deep and beautiful relationships between...

*Ian Doust - UNSW*

Distance geometry is the characterization and study of sets of points based only on given values of the distances between member pairs. A fundamental problem lies in deciding whether you can identify...

21 May 2015 - Efficient estimation in semivarying coefficient models for longitudinal/clustered data

*Prof Ming-Yen Cheng - National Taiwan University*

In semivarying coefficient modeling of longitudinal/clustered data, usually of primary interest is the parametric component which involves unknown constant coefficients. We first study semiparametric...

*Andreas Klocker - University of Tasmania*

A high-resolution ocean model and satellite-based observations are used to understand the closeinteraction of waves and turbulence in the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC). This analysisreveals the...

*Anna McGann - School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW*

This talk will show the derivation for the governing equations that describe the evolution of an SIR model for the spread of a disease in which the probability of recovering from the disease is a...

*Zhaonan Lu - School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW*

The aim of the thesis is to perform numerical simulations of Turing patterns for irregularly shaped domains. In this setting, finite elements are an appropriate tool for the spatial discretisation....

*Stephen Meagher - UNSW*

Curves over finite fields have a finite number of rational points, which number satisfies the Weil bounds. A basic question is whether the Weil bounds are sharp. It is known that they are for genus 1...
