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.

Andrew Schopieray - University of New South Wales
The classical McKay correspondence characterises finite subgroups of SU(2) by associating them with a very restrictive family of graphs.   This can be rephrased in modern language as a classification...

Matthew Hircock - University of New South Wales
The numerical range was first studied in 1918 as a useful tool for localising the spectrum of a linear operator on a Hilbert space. The convexity of this localisation limits how much information we...

Zac Murphy - University of New South Wales
At first glance, quotient categories might seem like a strange notion to define, but in actuality they turn out to be quite useful constructions. On one hand, they simplify the treatment of certain...

Krishnendu Gongopadhyay - Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Mohali
Let $SU(n,1)$ be the isometry group of the $n$-dimensional complex hyperbolic space. An element $g$ in $SU(n,1)$ is called loxodromic or hyperbolic if it has exactly two fixed points on the boundary...

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...

Gregory Karanikas - University of New South Wales
The set of upper triangular matrices equipped with the matrix $p$-norm provides the simplest example of a non-commutative Hardy space.  More generally, one can construct so-called Hardy spaces from...

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}^...

Matthew Evat - University of New South Wales
The theory of invariants of finite groups forms an interesting and relatively self-contained nook in commutative algebra. Also, there are close connections between this subject and combinatorics,...

Mircea Voineagu - University of New South Wales
We describe a road map from  equivariant motivic homotopy to equivariant motivic homology and several properties of these categories. We also describe the connections of Bredon motivic cohomology...

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...
