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.

Daniel Mansfield and Chi Mak - UNSW SYDNEY
In this seminar, Daniel Mansfield will introduce us to BLACKBOARD COLLABORATION in MOODLE.  We will be using the same link provided by Adelle Coster's email dated 17 March 2020.  Chi Mak will discuss...

Alexander Fish - University of Sydney
We will consider the set of transfer times between two measurable subsets of positive measures in an ergodic probability measure-preserving system of a countable abelian group. If the lower...

Po Lam Yung - ANU
The Vinogradov mean value theorem can be established in two seemingly different ways, namely the Fourier decoupling argument of Bourgain, Demeter and Guth, and the efficient congruencing argument of...

Stuart White - University of Oxford
This talk has been canceled.

Professor James Franklin - UNSW Sydney
Where empirical sciences like physics and sociology rely on observation and experiment, abstract sciences like mathematics and ethics don’t. The basic truths in them are accessible by pure thought...

Lindon Roberts - Australian National University
Least-squares problems (such as parameter estimation) are ubiquitous across quantitative disciplines. Optimisation algorithms for solving such problems are numerous and well-established. However, in...

A/Prof. Pierre Lafaye de Micheaux - UNSW Sydney
John W. Tukey (1975) defined statistical data depth as a function that determines the centrality of an arbitrary point with respect to a data cloud or to a probability measure. During the last...

Santiago Badia - Monash University
We present Gridap, a novel computational framework for the grid-based approximation of PDEs in the Julia programming language. The main motivation behind this library is to provide an easy-to-use...

Ray Li - UNSW
A famous result of Northcott's states that the set of preperiodic points of a rational function in a number field has finite size. Recently there has been interest in the arithmetic structure of...

Nelson Chen - UNSW
A combinatorial reciprocity theorem relates two classes of combinatorial objects via their counting functions. We shall explore the chromatic polynomial, which counts the number of proper n-...
