*Thomas Morrill - UNSW Canberra*

Overpartitions arise as a way to give combinatorial interpretation of the coefficients of $q$-hypergeometric series. We generalize the first and second Frobenius representations of overpartitions...

*Rubén Campoy - University of Alicante (Spain)*

Projection algorithms are powerful tools for finding common points in a collection of sets. The convergence of these algorithms to a point in the intersection is guaranteed, provided that the...

*Ian Doust - University of New South Wales*

There is an extensive and classical theory concerning the structure of Hilbert or Banach space operators which admit a $C(\sigma(T))$ functional calculus. A similar but weaker theory was developed in...

*Dr Bishakhdatta Gayen - Australian National University*

The general ocean circulation, of crucial importance to the global climate, involves fluid motion on scales ranging from turbulence, internal waves, eddies and fronts, planetary Rossby waves and...

*Peng Gao - Beihang University, China*

Let $c$ be a square-free Gaussian integer such that $c$ is congruent to 1 modulo 16. For fixed real $\sigma>1/2$, we show that there is an asymptotic distribution function $F_{\sigma}$ for the...

*Masaki Izumi - Kyoto University*

A von Neumann algebra is a weakly closed *-subalgebra of the set of bounded operators on a Hilbert space, and a factor is a von Neumann algebra with trivial center. In 1977, Connes-Takesaki...

*Peter Bradshaw and David Warton - University of Bristol (Peter Bradshaw) and UNSW (David Warton)*

The goal of this information session is to give some insight into the application process for PhD positions in Australia and overseas. Applying for PhD programs is a complex process, from finding the...

*Oliver Junge - TU München*

Transport and mixing properties of aperiodic flows are crucial to a dynamical analysis of the flow, and often have to be carried out with limited information. Finite-time coherent sets are regions of...

*Björn Winckler - Imperial College London*

In this talk I will discuss renormalization of low-dimensional dynamical systems and associated phenomena such as universality and rigidity. The first part of the talk will be an introduction to the...
