Ian Doust - UNSW Sydney
All the distance data for a finite metric spaces $X = \{x_1,\dots,x_n\}$ is stored in its distance matrix $D = (d(x_i,x_j))_{i,j=1}^n$. A common theme in distance geometry is to try to link linear...

Deniz Stiegemann - University of Queensland
Almost all algebraic structure in common use have some sort of associative binary operation ("multiplication"), but we don't always require there to exist all, or even any, inverses with respect to...

Colin Reid - University of Newcastle
Actions on trees are ubiquitous in group theory.  The standard approach to describing them is known as Bass–Serre theory, which presents the group acting on the tree as assembled from its vertex and...

Jiayi Li - UNSW Sydney
In 1984 Vaughan Jones discovered a polynomial knot invariant that is now called the Jones polynomial. This talk will explore the process of obtaining polynomial knot invariants from Markov traces on...

Lachlan MacDonald - University of Adelaide
Chern-Weil theory describes a procedure for constructing the characteristic classes of a smooth manifold from geometric data (such as a Riemannian metric). In the 1970s and 1980s, Chern-Weil theory...

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...

Jason Atnip - UNSW Sydney
In this talk we will consider a collection of piecewise monotone interval maps, which we iterate randomly, together with a collection of holes placed randomly throughout phase space. Birkhoff’s...
