*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...
