Seminar Archive - 2016

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.

Prof. Xiaojun Chen - The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Minimization problems with nonsmooth, nonconvex, perhaps even non-Lipschitz regularization terms have wide applications in image restoration, signal reconstruction and variable selection.  On $L_p$...

Prof. Liqun Qi - The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Markov chain, named after Russian mathematician Andrey Markov, is a stochastic model describing a sequence of possible events in which the probability of each event depends only on the state...

Balasubramanya Nadiga - Los Alamos National Laboratory
Earth system models (ESM) are the most comprehensive tools we have to study climate change and develop climate projections. However, the computational infrastructure required and the cost incurred in...

Nira Dyn - Tel Aviv University
This talk starts with a short introduction to subdivision schemes generating curves from a given sequence of points by repeated refinements. This notion is then extended to the refinement of 2D sets...

Yu Guang Wang - City University of Hong Kong
Data in a practical application with some structure can be viewed as sampled from a manifold, for instance, data on graphs and in astrophysics. An important case is a smooth and compact Riemannian...

Philippe Guyenne - University of Delaware
Based on a Hamiltonian formulation of a two-layer ocean, we consider the situationin which internal waves are treated in the long-wave regime while surface wavesare described in the modulation regime...

Simon Maxwell - Managing Director , Information Gateways Pty Ltd
ED STEM has two main components:   ED STEM Q&A Discussion Platform is used extensively at Sydney University by 10,000+ students for STEM subjects (about 80 courses) and some other subjects too.  ...

Zhi Liu - University of Macau
We study the kernel estimation of spot volatility of the semi-martingale using high frequency data, where the underlying model can contain a jump part with infinite variation jumps. The estimator is...

Professor Franco Vivaldi - Queen Mary University of London
A second year course on Mathematical Writing has been offered at Queen Mary for several years, initially intended as a preparation for (or a soft alternative to) final year projects. But teaching...

Chris Oates - University of Technology Sydney
This talk deals with statistical inverse problems that involve partial differential equations (PDEs) with unknown parameters. Our goal is to account, in a rigorous way, for the impact of...
