Gennady Notowidigdo - UNSW
Wildberger's framework of rational trigonometry (2005) presents a new way of orienting the study of geometry and trigonometry towards a more logical foundation; its algebraic nature allows us to...

Vinoth Nandakumar - University of Sydney
The irreducible representations of the general linear Lie algebra in positive characteristic are not well-understood. Lusztig's conjectures, now a theorem of Bezrukavnikov-Mirkovic, describe their...

Joachim von zur Gathen - University of Bonn
We consider natural combinatorial questions about systems of multivariate polynomials over a finite field and the variety V that they define over an algebraic closure. Fixing the number of variables...

Alina Ostafe - UNSW
Bombieri, Masser and Zannier (1999) proved that the intersection of a curve defined over a number field with the union of all proper algebraic subgroups of the multiplicative group $\mathbb{G}_m^n$...

Anastasios Panagiotelis - Monash University
We develop efficient Bayesian inference for the one factor copula model with two significant contributions over existing methodologies. First, our approach leads to straightforward inference on...

Caroline Turnage-Butterbaugh - Duke University
The Riemann zeta-function is a ubiquitous, yet mysterious, function in number theory. The importance of its so-called nontrivial zeros stems from the relationship between the location of these zeros...

Caroline Turnage-Butterbaugh - Duke University
This talk will present a new effective Chebotarev theorem that holds for all but a possible zero-density subfamily of certain families of number fields of fixed degree. For certain families, this...

Professor Sergei Fedotov - University of Manchester, UK
Levy walk is a fundamental notion in physics  and biology with numerous applications including T-cell motility in the brain and active transport within living cells. It is argued that living...

Professor Katsuto Tanaka - Gakushuin University
Dealing with nonstationary panel models with the error term following the AR(1) process, we examine cross-sectional effects of regressors on the asymptotic properties of panel unit root tests. For...

Gennady Notowidigdo - UNSW Sydney
The Cayley-Menger determinant, also known previously to Euler and Tartaglia, is a key tool for us in defining metrical quantities in higher-dimensional rational trigonometry. In this talk, we look at...
