Lee Zhao - UNSW
Let $t$ be a natural number.  We show that there are infinitely many $t$-tuples of primes $p_1 < \cdots < p_t$, all congruent to $a$ modulo $q$ (with $\gcd (a,q)=1$ and $q$ satisfying certain...

Masatake Hirao - Aichi Prefectural University, Nagakute
The concept of a QMC design sequence was introduced by Brauchart et al (2014). In this talk we give a probabilistic generation of a sequence of QMC designs by using determinantal point processes (...

Dr Daniel Karrasch - Technical University of Munich, Germany
Advective transport of scalar quantities through surfaces is of fundamental importance in many scientific applications. From the Eulerian perspective of the surface it can be quantified by the well-...

Professor Kanta Naito - Shimane University, Japan
This paper examines the high dimensional asymptotics of the naive Hotelling $T^2$ statistic. Naive Bayes has been utilized in high dimensional pattern recognition as a method to avoid singularities...

Cleve Moler - MathWorks
Cleve Moler will share his story about the history of MATLAB and his inspirations that led to it. MATLAB is now a full-featured technical computing environment, but it started as a simple “Matrix...

Masaki Izumi - Kyoto University
Fusion categories may be considered as generalization of the representation categories of finite groups,and they appear in various areas in mathematics and mathematical physics, such as...

Prof. Immanuel Bomze - University of Vienna, Austria
Second-order local optimality conditions involving copositivity of the Hessian of the Lagrangian on the reduced (polyhedral) tangent cone have the advantage that there is only a small gap between...

Dr Ganes Ganesalingam - The University of Sydney
The most important attribute of a great university teacher is the ability to engage and influence students to produce the highest quality graduates. The question I like to raise and try to answer is...

Marcus Webb - University of Cambridge
Chebyshev technology is frequently used for approximation of functions, but there are some situations in which an expansion in Legendre polynomials is advantageous. In this talk I will discuss a new...

Andy Hammerlindl - Monash University
I will talk about known models of chaotic dynamical systems in dimensions two and three, and results which classify the types of chaotic dynamics that are robust under perturbation.  I will also talk...
