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.

Dr Libo Li - UNSW School of Mathematics & Statistics
We study the existence and regularity of density to a Levy driven SDE with bounded and holder continuous coefficients using the parametrix method originated from the study of parabolic PDEs.

Layna Groen and Mary Coupland - School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, UTS
For several semesters we have been using a Mastery Learning approach for large first year classes at UTS. The immediate benefit is that pass rates have improved. First year maths students do three or...

Alessandro Ottazzi - UNSW
SubRiemannian geometries occur in many areas of pure and applied mathematics, including PDEs, several complex variables, control theory, non-holonomic mechanical systems, and neurobiology. We...

Prof. Gue Myung Lee - Pukyong National University, Korea
In this talk, we consider the class of polynomial optimization problems with inequality and equality constraints, in which every problem of the class is obtained by perturbations of the objective...

Zhi Gang Lai - School of Marine Sciences, Sun Yat-Sen University, China
The Unstructured-grid Finite-volume Coastal Ocean Model (FVCOM) has become a very popular numerical tool in recent years. In this talk, the basic features of FVCOM will be introduced with some...

Prof Gernot Müller - Universität Augsburg
In recent years, electricity markets throughout the world have undergone massive changes due to deregulations. Extreme price volatility has forced producers and wholesale consumers to hedge not only...

Matthew Kwan - ETH Zurich
A graph is a kind of discrete structure that encodes connections between objects. The study of large graphs is of broad interest, in fields ranging from number theory to neuroscience. In this talk...

Dr Adrian Bishop - NICTA
This talk will introduce a newly proposed framework for nonlinear stochastic optimal control. Roughly speaking, the optimal controller in this nonlinear stochastic setting is related to the solution...

Jonathan Kress, Shev MacNamara, Chris Tisdell and Norman Wildberger - School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW.
Most of us are directly or indirectly involved in teaching at some level. Several members of the School of Mathematics and Statistics have recently been successful in  a variety of different types of...

Gordon Blower - Lancaster University
The motivation for this work is from the theory of random matrices, and the scattering theory of differential equations with rational matrix coefficients. Associated to a linear system is a matrix...
