Seminar Archive - 2020

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.

Alexander Ly - University of Amsterdam
For many years statisticians (e.g., Berkson 1942; Wasserstein & Lazar 2016) have warned applied scientists of the dangers of the mechanistic use of p-values as a license for making a claim of a...

Mike Meylan - University of Newcastle (Australia)
Hydroelasticity is the coupling of fluid motions with elasticity.  Essentially it is any problem which requires a knowledge of elasticity and fluid mechanics to solve.  There are numerous...

Edward McDonald - University of New South Wales
The density of states is a non-negative measure associated to a Schrodinger operator which is supported on its essential spectrum. Theoretical questions concerning the existence and properties of the...

Michael Coons - University of Newcastle
We will discuss some sequences whose generating functions are infinite products which act reasonably under the Frobenius operator, $x\mapsto x^k$, for some $k$. Such sequences, e.g. the Thue-Morse...

Vladimir Temlyakov - Steklov Mathematical Institute of Russian Academy of Science
The goal of this talk is twofold. First, we present a unified way of formulating numerical integration problems from both approximation theory and discrepancy theory.   Second, we discuss some upper...

Paul Lessard - Macquarie University
This talk is cancelled because the speaker is unwell.   We'll begin with a revisionist history of model category theory (we'll Imagine that, in place of homological algebra, the notion had its origin...

Jie Due - University of New South Wales
Hecke endomorphism algebras are a natural generalization of q-Schur algebras from symmetric groups to arbitrary Coxeter groups. They appear naturally in the study of representations of finite groups...

Prof. Benoit Liquet - University of Pau et Pays de L'Adour
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) focus on testing association between millions of genetic markers (or single nucleotide polymorphisms, SNPs) and a phenotype in an agnostic way, where every SNP...

Boris Kashin - Steklov Mathematical Institute of Russian Academy of Science
Theorems of different nature concerning the restriction of operator to coordinate subspace and their application in Analysis and Approximation theory will be discussed.

Sean Gasiorek - University of Sydney
 Mathematical billiards has been a playground for various topics within geometry and dynamical systems for the last 100 years. In this talk, we give an introduction to mathematical billiards and...
