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.

Peng Gao - Beihang University, Beijing, China
The density conjecture of Katz and Sarnak suggests that the distribution of zeros near 1/2 of a family of $L$-functions is the same as that of eigenvalues near 1 of a corresponding classical compact...

Adrian Miranda - University of New South Wales
Category theory allows a precise formulation of relationships between structures that emerge from seemingly different contexts across mathematics. One would like to study not just the properties of...

Daniel Altman - University of New South Wales
Consider the problem of factorising a degree n polynomial over F_p. Randomised algorithms whose complexities are polynomial in n and log p date back half a century. The salient open problem in the...

Debargha Banerjee - Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Pune
We give an effective bound to the number of torsion points of  these families of certain groups. Key ingredient in our construction is  a suitable  Eisenstein series (analytic object). The constant...

John Bourke - Macquarie University
Many structures in mathematics admit some notion of tensor product.  For example, we have the cartesian product of sets, the tensor product of vector spaces and of chain complexes.  The common...

Daniel Mansfield & Norman Wildberger - University of New South Wales
 The Old Babylonian (OB) era from 1900 to 1600 B.C.E. in southern Iraq is a remarkable period in world history. Thanks to thousands of clay cuneiform tablets, we have a good idea not only of the rich...

Norman Wildberger - University of New South Wales
We will be bringing together ideas from classical projective geometry, triangle geometry, graph theory and hypergroup theory in order to understand a remarkable generalization of the Schiffler point...

Catherine Greenhill - University of New South Wales
The small subgraph conditioning method was introduced by Robinson and Wormald (1992, 1994) to prove that a random $r$-regular graph contains a Hamilton cycle with probability which tends to 1 as the...

Ji Li - Macquarie University
In this talk we will discuss the connection between function theory and operator theory by showing that certain operator theory concepts have natural analogues in function theory.  This will be...

Tarig Abdelgadir - University of New South Wales
The simply laced Dynkin diagrams, i.e. those of type ADE, have a habit of showing up in all sorts of places. In this talk, I will discuss how they are related to finite subgroups of SL(2,C) this is...
