Our regular seminar program covers a broad range of topics from applied mathematics, pure mathematics and statistics. All staff and students are welcome. This page has a complete list of past seminars and a list restricted by year can be accessed via the left-hand menu.

Jules Lamers - University of Melbourne
I will introduce the landscape of quantum-integrable long-range spin chains and the associated (quantum-)algebraic structures, and describe recent advances and open problems in the field. Since their...

Conrad Martin - UNSW Sydney
In the field of arithmetic dynamics, we are interested in classifying points in a number field K depending on their orbit, that is, how they behave under repeated application of a given rational...

Ryan Seelig - UNSW Sydney
To avoid paradoxes, the geometry of physics at the very smallest scales must be non-commutative. The symmetries of such a geometry constitute a structure called a Quantum Group. In this talk we build...

Behrouz Taji - University of Sydney
In the 1920s, building on Fermat's Last Theorem, Mordell conjectured that the set of rational points of any smooth projective curve of genus at least two, over any number field, is finite. In the...

Dinakar Muthiah - University of Glasgow
A common goal in algebraic geometry is to understand a geometric object as a moduli space. One fundamental difficulty is determining whether the proposed moduli space is reduced, i.e. that the...

Kevin Shen - UNSW Sydney
George Boole introduced Boolean algebra in 1847 and since then it has played a central role in various areas such as logic circuit design, complexity theory and propositional logic. The conventional...

Anna Romanov - University of Sydney
This is a talk about my favourite theorem. The Beilinson—Bernstein localisation theorem provides a concrete link between two seemingly disparate mathematical worlds: the world of Lie theory (the...

Man-Wai Cheung (Mandy) - University of Harvard
Cluster varieties are log Calabi-Yau varieties which are unions of algebraic tori glued by birational  "mutation" maps. They can be seen as a generalization of the toric varieties. In toric geometry...

Shayo Olukoya - University of St Andrews, Scotland
Abstract: The class of full and sufficiently transitive (i.e. flexible) groups of homeomorphisms of Cantor space contains many groups of interest including  generalisations of the Higman-Thompson...

Urs Fuchs - Monash University
Pseudoholomorphic curves were introduced by Gromov as a fundamental tool for the study of symplectic manifolds. I will review some applications of pseudoholomorphic curves in symplectic geometry,...
