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.

A. Prof. Norman Wildberger - UNSW
Non-Euclidean geometry was one of the great developments of nineteenth century mathematics. This talk will give a historical introduction to hyperbolic geometry, and then introduce a simpler and more...

Dr. Thomas Britz - UNSW
Almost a century ago, the study of the Four Colour Problem drove mathematicians to study linear algebra in terms of combinatorial properties. Matrices and projective spaces were thus replaced by more...

Dr. Christopher Drupieski - Virginia
In 1984, Andersen and Jantzen computed the structure of the cohomology ring with trivial coefficients of the restricted Lie algebra corresponding to a reductive algebraic group. In 1993, Ginzburg and...

Assoc. Prof. Norman Wildberger - UNSW
One of the most striking elementary results of twentieth century mathematics was Lester Ford's discovery of remarkable circles associated to fractions. They are closely related to the Stern Brocot...

Dr. Reinhard Wolf - Salzburg
Let (X,d) be a compact metric space and let M(X) denote the space of all finite signed Borel measures on X. Define I:M(X) --> R by I(\mu) = \int_X \int_X d(x,y) d\mu(x) d\mu(y), and set M(X) = sup...

Dr. Nicholas Cavenagh - UNSW
In this talk we mention some unexepected combinatorial equivalences of diagonally cyclic latin squares. We also outline a proof that any set of three cyclically generated transversals can be...
