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.

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...
