*Juan G. Criado del Rey - University of Cantabria, Spain*

Homotopy methods is the name for a set of algorithms designed to find approximate solutions in a broad class of very important problems such as polynomial system solving or the eigenvalue problem....

*Dzmitry Badziahin - University of Sydney*

We consider a class of Mahler functions $g(x)$ which can be written as an infinite product $g(x) = 1/x * \prod_{t=0}^\infty P(x^{-d^t})$, where $d$ is a positive integer and $P(x)$ is a polynomial of...

*Ana Zumalacarregui - UNSW*

We will study the existence of certain additive structures in random sets of integers. More precisely, let $Mx=0$ be a linear system defining our structure ($k$-arithmetic progressions, $k$-sums, $...

*Shige Peng - Shandong University*

Traditionally, a real-life random sample is often treated as measurements resulting from an i.i.d. sequence of random variables or, more generally, as an outcome of either linear or nonlinear...

*Norman Wildberger - University of New South Wales*

We will be bringing together ideas from classical projective geometry, triangle geometry, graph theory and hypergroup theory in order to understand a remarkable generalization of the Schiffler point...

*Shenwei Huang - UNSW, School of Computer Science and Engineering*

An even hole is an induced cycle of even length 4 or more. A cap is a cycle of length at least 5 with exactly one chord and that chord creates a triangle with the cycle. In this talk, we consider (...

*Yong Song - The University of Melbourne*

This paper interprets and develops Berry et al. [1995] model in the Bayesian framework. First, we partition the consumer utility into two components: mean and heteroskedasticity. Our decomposition...

*Barton Lee - UNSW Business School and School of Computer Science*

The consensus problem in multi-agent systems has long been the subject of intense research within the fields of computer science and mathematics. This problem can naturally be expressed as a...

*Amie Wilkinson - University of Chicago*

What are the underlying mechanisms for robustly chaotic behavior in smooth dynamics? In addressing this question, I’ll focus on the study of diffeomorphisms of a compact manifold. I’ll describe...

*Emeritus Professor D Brynn Hibbert FRSN - School of Chemistry, UNSW*

The seminar will be descriptions of an eclectic mix of mathematical and statistical methods applied in chemistry, with the unifying theme that the author has had a hand in each of them.
The Guide to...
