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.

Paul Lessard - Macquarie University
We'll begin with a revisionist history of model category theory (we'll imagine that, in place of homological algebra, the notion had its origin in category theory). Using this apocryphal premise, we'...

Nelson Chen - UNSW
A combinatorial reciprocity theorem relates two classes of combinatorial objects via their counting functions. We shall explore the chromatic polynomial, which counts the number of proper n-...

Ray Li - UNSW
A famous result of Northcott's states that the set of preperiodic points of a rational function in a number field has finite size. Recently there has been interest in the arithmetic structure of...

Stuart White - University of Oxford
This talk has been canceled.

Sean Gasiorek - University of Sydney
 Mathematical billiards has been a playground for various topics within geometry and dynamical systems for the last 100 years. In this talk, we give an introduction to mathematical billiards and...

Jie Due - University of New South Wales
Hecke endomorphism algebras are a natural generalization of q-Schur algebras from symmetric groups to arbitrary Coxeter groups. They appear naturally in the study of representations of finite groups...

Paul Lessard - Macquarie University
This talk is cancelled because the speaker is unwell.   We'll begin with a revisionist history of model category theory (we'll Imagine that, in place of homological algebra, the notion had its origin...

Edward McDonald - University of New South Wales
The density of states is a non-negative measure associated to a Schrodinger operator which is supported on its essential spectrum. Theoretical questions concerning the existence and properties of the...

Jinghao Huang - University of New South Wales
In 1967, W.A.J. Luxemburg raised a problem: Determine all the extreme points of the set of elements majorised by an integrable function on an arbitrary finite measure space. The atomless case has...

Stephan Baier - Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Educational and Research Institute
Dirichlet's approximation theorem tells us that, given any irrational $\alpha$, the inequality $|\alpha-a/q| \le q^{-2}$ is satisfied for infinitely many fractions $a/q$ of coprime integers $a$ and $...
