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.

Ian Renner - University of Newcastle
My research focuses on species distribution modelling, in which data collected on the presence of species is used to predict the distribution of species as a function of the environment. As simple as...

Mircea Voineagu - University of New South Wales
Bredon motivic cohomology is a cohomology theory for equivariant algebraic varieties over a field of characteristic zero. We discuss Bredon motivic cohomology in the context of equivariant motivic...

Pierre Portal - ANU
Can one use pseudo-differential calculus in situations where no Fourier transform is available? On a manifold, one can use the Euclidean pseudo-differential calculus locally, but can one find a...

Peter Cudmore - University of Melbourne
Many problems in biology, physics and engineering involve predicting and controlling complex systems, loosely defined as interconnected system-of-systems. Such systems can exhibit a variety of...

Ziyu Li - UNSW
Given rules for substituting the edges of a graph by subgraphs, it is of interest to determine the properties of the resulting iterative graphs. One of the significant problems in this respect is to...

Dr. Rachel Wang - University of Sydney
Variational approximation has been widely used in large-scale Bayesian inference recently, the simplest kind of which involves imposing a mean field assumption to approximate complicated latent...

Vesa Kaarnioja - UNSW, Sydney.
A popular model for the parametrization of random fields in uncertainty quantification is given by the so-called affine model, where the input random field is assumed to depend on uniformly...

Leonard Scott - University of Virginia
This talk is based on  joint work with Brian Parshall and Jie Du, in progress.  I will give some of the history and framework leading to the main conjecture we had made, asserting the existence of a...

Yann Bugeaud - University of Strasbourg
It is commonly expected that $e$, $\log 2$, $\sqrt{2}$, among other classical numbers, behave, in many respects, like almost all real numbers. For instance, their decimal expansion should contain...

Simon Macourt - UNSW
We build upon the existing results of multilinear exponential sums over prime fields and extend results beyond the previous barrier of quadrilinear sums to general multilinear sums. This extension is...
