*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...
