*Behrouz Taji - University of Sydney*

A celebrated conjecture in algebraic geometry, which goes back to Shafarevich, predicts that variation in many families of projective complex manifolds can be in some sense measured by the canonical...

*Yang Liu - The Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA), Trieste*

Modeled on spectral geometry of Riemannian manifolds, the asymptotic expansion of the heat operator of a geometric elliptic operator provides a functional analytic approach to detect local...

*Yudhistira A Bunjamin - UNSW Sydney*

In July 2019, the Science Faculty of UNSW undertook a regional outreach road trip to schools in the NSW Central West. The School of Mathematics and Statistics was represented by Michael Denes and...

*Peng Gao - Beihang University*

Let $\mathcal{D}$ be the set of non-square quadratic discriminants and $\chi_D=(\frac {D}{\cdot})$ be the Kronecker symbol. The mean square estimation \begin{align*}\sum_{\substack {|D| \leq X \\ D \...

*Dr. Clara Grazian - UNSW Sydney*

Many proposals are now available to model complex data, in particular thanks to the recent advances in computational methodologies and algorithms which allow to work with complicated likelihood...

*Rosemary Morrow - Laboratoire d’Etudes en Géophysique et Océanographie Spatiales (LEGOS), France*

The future international SWOT Mission, planned for launch in 2021, will make high-resolution 2D observations of sea-surface height using SAR radar interferometric techniques. SWOT will map the global...

*Christian Lubich - Universität Tübingen, Tübingen, Germany*

Geometric aspects play an important role in the construction and analysis of structure-preserving numerical methods for a wide variety of ordinary and partial differential equations. Here we review...

*Martin Golumbic - University of Haifa*

Graph sandwich problems are a prototypical example of checking consistency when faced with only partial data. A sandwich problem for a graph with respect to a graph property $\Pi$ is a partially...

*Emily Wong - Victor Chang*

The vast array of animal form and function has little to do with what genes are present in each species, but depends instead on how they are regulated. This information is unfurled as development...

*Simon Macourt - University of New South Wales*

Exponential sums were first introduced 200 years ago by Gauss. Since then, bounds on such sums have been an interesting item of study and have found several applications. We will give an introduction...
