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...

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...
