Seminar Archive - 2018

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.

Oded Yacobi - University of Sydney
Linear representations of Lie algebras have a beautiful and well studied theory.  In the last decade we've discovered an equally rich and rigid theory of categorical representations of Lie algebras,...

Patrick Donnelly and Gary Burnett - NVIDIA Corporation
We explain how NVIDIA GPUs accelerate computation in two common areas of research: computer vision and natural language processing. We discuss advances in neural network architecture from NVIDIA...

David Harvey - UNSW
It is now over a decade since the appearance of Fürer's breakthrough result on the asymptotic complexity of integer multiplication. Over the past few years, several authors, building on Fürer's ideas...

Peng Gao - Beihang University, China
 Central values of $L$-functions have been investigated extensively in the literature due to significant arithmetic information carried by them. Moments of central values of $L$-functions play...

Dominic Vella - University of New South Wales
In 1989, Alain Connes showed in his famous trace theorem that the notion of integration on a compact manifold $M$ is preserved in noncommutative geometry using a class of singular traces on pseudo-...

Yanan Fan - School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW Sydney
 In this talk the speaker will report on some international developments for gender equality in higher education from her recent attendance at the 10th European Conference on Gender Equality in...

Zsuzsanna Dancso - University of Sydney
Quantised lattices, or q-lattices, appear naturally through categorification constructions - for example from "zigzag-algebras" - but they haven't been studied from a lattice theory point of view....

Erika Hausenblas - Montanuniversitaet Leoben, Austria
The Gray Scott system is a two-component system of reaction-diffusion equations describing the interaction of two chemical substance, an inhibitor, and an activator. This system exhibits a large...

Thomas Scheckter - UNSW
Responding to work of Révész on a problem of Steinhaus, Komlós showed that every integrable sequence of random variables contains a subsequence which “satisfies the strong law of large numbers”, such...

Scott Lindstrom - University of Newcastle, Australia
Experimental discovery has long played an important role in research mathematics, even before the advent of modern computational tools. Many methods of antiquity are familiar to all of us, including...
