*Michela Castagnone - University of New South Wales*

The ability to generate uniformly random graphs is useful in many real world applications. For example, we may model a given social network as a graph, and determine its key properties. In order to...

*Hendra Gunawan - Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia*

For $1\le p \le q<\infty$, we define the Morrey space $\mathcal{M}^p_q({\mathbb R}^n)$ to be the set of all $p$-locally integrable functions on ${\mathbb R}^n$ such that
\[ \| f \|_{{\mathcal M}^...

*Peter Donovan - UNSW*

Extensions of the WHFPF in projective algebraic geometry are discussed. In particular, an extension, described by Loring Tu (2015) as a lost theorem of Shimura, is investigated.
Some comments will...

*Thomas Britz - UNSW*

The Tutte polynomial was once an esoteric object known only to the then small community of combinatorialists. That changed when Greene (1976) pointed out the connection between this polynomial and...

*Cain Edie-Michell - Australian National University*

Planar algebras provide a very nice graphical interpretation of tensor categories. In particular they make easy many computations that are difficult using purely tensor categories. Using theorems...

*Ulrich Thiel - University of Sydney*

Many interesting algebras appearing in the context of algebraic Lie theory admit a “triangular” decomposition, a classical example being the universal enveloping algebra of a semisimple complex Lie...

*Philip Hackney - Macquarie University*

Operads, invented in the early seventies by J.P. May, are a convenient tool for describing a variety of algebraic situations arising in homotopy theory, and have proven to be useful in many other...

*Boris Lishak - Univesity of Sydney*

There are exponentially many triangulations of a fixed manifold extremely distant from each other in some natural metric. I will discuss similar results for Riemannian structures. In order to prove...

*Tim Trudgian - UNSW Canberra*

There is a striking connection between the zeroes of the Riemann zeta-function and the distribution of the primes. In this talk I shall mention some analytic properties of the zeta-function that...

*Nicholas Cavenagh - University of Waikato*

If $D$ is a partially filled-in $(0, 1)$-matrix with a unique completion to a $(0, 1)$-matrix $M$ (with prescribed row and column sums), we say that $D$ is a defining set for $M$ . Let $A_{2m}$ be...
