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.

Davide Ravotti - Monash University
Abstract: Parabolic flows are smooth flows for which nearby points diverge slowly (namely, at polynomial speed) and include, for example, smooth area-preserving flows on surfaces, horocycle flows and...

Anna Puskás - The University of Queensland, Australia
The study of objects from number theory such as metaplectic Whittaker functions has led to surprising applications of combinatorial representation theory. Classical Whittaker functions can be...

Visu Markam - Institute for Advanced Study and University of Melbourne
The study of symmetries in the setting of group actions via "invariant" polynomials is called invariant theory. Computation has played a key role in the evolution of invariant theory from its very...

Stephan Tornier - University of Newcastle
Following a motivation of groups acting on trees by situating them within the broader theory of all (locally compact) groups, I demonstrate that the ’global’ structure of such a group is innately...

Cain Edie-Michell - Vanderbilt University, USA
Quantum subgroups are module categories, which encode the ``higher representation theory'' of the Lie algebras. They appear naturally in mathematical physics, where they correspond to extensions of...

Jackie Lok - UNSW Sydney
Understanding the rate of convergence to stationarity, or mixing time, of a Markov chain is of interest for problems from shuffling cards to providing rigorous bounds for the runtime of Monte Carlo...

Oliver Bruhl - UNSW Sydney
In 1979 János Komlós proved a generalised result of the strong law of large numbers by removing the i.i.d condition, commonly known as the Komlós Theorem, which guarantees almost everywhere...

William Beare - UNSW Sydney
Geometric proofs are often the subject of revisiting and streamlining as new perspectives and tools emerge in the world of mathematics. Tangential to this exercise is the ever-growing web that is the...

David Morris - UNSW Sydney
The Polynomial Learning with Errors problem (PLWE) is a promising contender for lattice based, post quantum cryptography, with applications revolving around the security and implementation of Public...

Ryan Snoyman - UNSW Sydney
Abstract: As quantum computers continue to increase in size, an efficient proof of quantumness is required to certify that they are performing computations as expected. In this talk, we examine a...
