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
This seminar has been cancelled. The study on the mean values of the divisor function $d(n)$ has a long history. Using his hyperbola method, Dirichlet established a well-known asymptotic formula for...

Micah Milinovich - University of Mississippi
There are many situations where one imposes certain conditions on a function and its Fourier transform and then wants to optimize a certain quantity. I will describe how these types of Fourier...

Stephan Baier - Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Educational and Research Institute
This is joint work with N. Prabhu (Queens University at Kingston, Canada). We derive new bounds for moments of the error in the Sato-Tate law over families of elliptic curves.  As applications, we...

Ben Madafiglio - University of New South Wales
In 1970, Cheeger bounded the lowest nonzero eigenvalue  $\lambda_1 $ of the Laplacian on a Riemannain manifold using a geometrical property now known as the Cheeger isoperiemtric constant. Cheeger's...

Gary Liang - University of New South Wales
Greenhill, Kwan and Wind determined the asymptotic distribution of the number of spanning trees in a random cubic graph using the small subgraph conditioning method. They conjectured that a similar...

Gavin Robertson - University of New South Wales
 In 1932, Banach devoted Chapter 12 of his book “Theory of Linear Operations” to determining the values of $p$ and $q$ for which the Banach space $L^{q}[0,1]$ is (linearly) isomorphic to a subspace...

Marley Young - University of New South Wales
A famous result of Northcott implies that a polynomial defined over a number field $K$ has only finitely many preperiodic points lying in $K$. It is of interest to determine if similar finiteness...

Galina Levitina - University of New South Wales
Using tools of the scattering theory we prove a limiting absorption for the free massless Dirac operator $D$ in multidimensional Euclidean space. As a corollary we prove that for a sufficiently good...

Zsuzsanna Dancso - University of Sydney
Quantised lattices, or q-lattices, appear naturally through categorification constructions - for example from "zigzag-algebras" - but they haven't been studied from a lattice theory point of view....

Oded Yacobi - University of Sydney
Linear representations of Lie algebras have a beautiful and well studied theory.  In the last decade we've discovered an equally rich and rigid theory of categorical representations of Lie algebras,...
