Seminar Archive - 2017

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.

Ulrich Thiel - University of Sydney
Many interesting algebras appearing in the context of algebraic Lie theory admit a “triangular” decomposition, a classical example being the universal enveloping algebra of a semisimple complex Lie...

Cain Edie-Michell - Australian National University
Planar algebras provide a very nice graphical interpretation of tensor categories. In particular they make easy many computations that are difficult using purely tensor categories. Using theorems...

Aurore Delaigle - University of Melbourne
We show that, in the functional data context, by appropriately exploiting the functional nature of the data, it is possible to classify and cluster the observations asymptotically perfectly. We...

Ananta K. Majee - University of Tübingen, Germany
In this presentation, we study an optimal control problem for the stochastic Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation on a bounded domain in R^d (d = 1, 2, 3). We first establish existence of a relaxed...

Thomas Britz - UNSW
The Tutte polynomial was once an esoteric object known only to the then small community of combinatorialists. That changed when Greene (1976) pointed out the connection between this polynomial and...

Michael L. Banner - UNSW Mathematics and Statistics
  Breaking waves have challenged mariners since the earliest days of seafaring, with scientific and engineering interest increasing rapidly following the publication of Stokes’ remarkable...

Danesh Jogia and Timothy McMahon - Australian Signals Directorate
Number theory has had a special relationship with cryptography since the mid-seventies when the Diffie-Hellman and RSA algorithms were published. With the existence of a quantum computer becoming...

Kam Hung Yau - UNSW
For any sufficiently small real number $\varepsilon >0$, we obtain an asymptotic formula for the number of solutions to $\lVert \alpha n + \beta \rVert < x^{\varepsilon} $ ($\lVert \cdot \...

Bishnu Lamichhane - University of Newcastle, Australia.
We consider a three-field formulation of linear elasticity problem. The standard three-field formulation -- often known as the Hu-Washizu formulation in elasticity -- is the mother of many different...

Peter Donovan - UNSW
Extensions of the WHFPF in projective algebraic geometry are discussed. In particular, an extension, described by Loring Tu (2015) as a lost theorem of Shimura, is investigated.   Some comments will...
