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.

A/Prof. Mary Myerscough and Dr Sharon Stephen - The University of Sydney
This semester the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sydney has trialled board tutorials (where students work in groups at whiteboards around the room) in a large first year...

Stuart Hawkins - Macquarie University
We consider a class of wave propagation models with aleatoric and epistemic uncertainties. Using mathematical analysis-based, shape-independent, a priori parameter estimates, we develop offline/...

Dr Armando Teixeira-Pinto - School of Public Health, University of Sydney
Sepsis is a leading cause of death in patients admitted to Intensive Care. While guidelines for sepsis management have shown limited success, a conceptual staging system was proposed by a panel of...

Alex Ghitza - University of Melbourne
Rankin-Cohen brackets are a way of differentiating a modular form while preserving the modularity property.  This produces a differential operator on modular forms (mod p), whose effect on the...

Prof Wen-Han Hwang - Institute of Statistics, National Chung Hsing University, Taiwan
Individual covariates are commonly used in capture-recapture models as they can provide important information for population size estimation. However, in practice, one or more covariates may be...

Prof. Michael Shelley - New York University
  Register for this seminar. Swimming, or self-propulsion through a fluid, is done by algae, bacteria, birds, and whales. It even occurs inside of cells. Swimming becomes especially fascinating when...

Yulia Kuznetsova - Université de Franche-Comté
This talk allows to observe some connections of the functional analysis to subtle measure theory and even to the axioms of the set theory. Let G be a locally compact group, and let U be its unitary...

Noufel Frikha - University Paris VII
During this presentation we study multi-level stochastic approximation algorithm. Our aim is to extend the scope of the multi-level Monte Carlo method recently introduced by Giles (Giles 2008) to the...

Alexander Bobenko - Technische Universität Berlin
An emerging field of discrete differential geometry aims at the development of discrete equivalents of notions and methods of classical differential geometry, in particular of surface theory. The...

Norman Wildberger - UNSW
Does modern pure mathematics make logical sense?? Unfortunately the answer to this difficult question is not as pleasant as we might like. There ARE serious logical weaknesses that most of us would...
