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.

Mitchell Roberts - UNSW Sydney
 In 1960 Eugene Wigner wrote The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in the Natural Sciences, an essay questioning the role of mathematics in the physical sciences, and especially questioning...

Christian de Nicola Larsen - UNSW Sydney
The Gelfand Duality is an equivalence of categories between the category of commutative unital C*-algebras and the category of compact Hausdorff spaces. The talk will cover this equivalence of...

Jackson Ryder - UNSW Sydney
Abelian categories are a generalisation of a module categories and play an important role in areas such as algebraic topology and algebraic geometry. A well-known result of Morita states that any...

Feyisayo Olukoya (Shayo) - University of St Andrews, Scotland
We give a survey of recent results exploring connections between the Higman-Thompson groups and their automorphism groups and the group of automorphisms of the shift dynamical system. Our survey...

Becky Armstrong - University of Victoria, Wellington
C*-algebras were first introduced in order to model physical observables in quantum mechanics, but are now studied more abstractly in pure mathematics. Much of the current research of C*-algebraists...

Martina Rovelli - Australian National University
Ordinary category theory provides a formal language to explain similar phenomena that happen in various contexts, enabling the transfer of ideas from one area of study to another. For many relevant...

Marcos Origlia - Monash University
During this talk I will recall some basic definitions involved in the notion of locally conformal Kähler (LCK) manifolds (complex structure, symplectic form, Kähler metric, etc.). I'll focus on LCK...

Michael Libman - UNSW Sydney
At the intersection of graph theory, extremal set theory and optimisation theory lies a collection of mathematical results often known as ‘min-max theorems’ and include celebrated combinatorial...

Rumi Salazar - UNSW Sydney
 In the 1980s, a relationship was found between the two fields of symplectic geometry and geometric invariant theory (GIT) via the Kempf-Ness theorem. Symplectic geometry generalises the notion of...

Zachary Edelstein - UNSW Sydney
 A social network can be represented as a collection of nodes and edges. The nodes represent the people in the network and the edges (or links) between nodes signify a relationship, such as...
