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.

Leonard Scott - University of Virginia
This talk is based on  joint work with Brian Parshall and Jie Du, in progress.  I will give some of the history and framework leading to the main conjecture we had made, asserting the existence of a...

Mircea Voineagu - University of New South Wales
Bredon motivic cohomology is a cohomology theory for equivariant algebraic varieties over a field of characteristic zero. We discuss Bredon motivic cohomology in the context of equivariant motivic...

Alexander Jason Dunn - University of Illinois
Let   \[ f(q):=1+\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{q^{n^2}}{(1+q)^2(1+q^2)^2\cdots(1+q^n)^2}=:1+\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \alpha(n)q^n, \] be the well-known third order mock theta of Ramanujan. Part of the...

Peter Donovan - University of New South Wales
There is a rather surprising relevance of the Artin-Hasse exponential to the Grothendieck Riemann-Roch theorem.

Paul Bryan - Macquarie University
The Harnack inequality plays a central role in the analysis of parabolic equations, such as through the strong maximum principle, regularity of weak solutions, Liouville type theorems for ancient...

Peng Gao - Beihang University
This seminar has been cancelled. The study on the mean values of the divisor function $d(n)$ has a long history. Using his hyperbola method, Dirichlet established a well-known asymptotic formula for...

Micah Milinovich - University of Mississippi
There are many situations where one imposes certain conditions on a function and its Fourier transform and then wants to optimize a certain quantity. I will describe how these types of Fourier...

Stephan Baier - Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Educational and Research Institute
This is joint work with N. Prabhu (Queens University at Kingston, Canada). We derive new bounds for moments of the error in the Sato-Tate law over families of elliptic curves.  As applications, we...

Ben Madafiglio - University of New South Wales
In 1970, Cheeger bounded the lowest nonzero eigenvalue  $\lambda_1 $ of the Laplacian on a Riemannain manifold using a geometrical property now known as the Cheeger isoperiemtric constant. Cheeger's...

Gary Liang - University of New South Wales
Greenhill, Kwan and Wind determined the asymptotic distribution of the number of spanning trees in a random cubic graph using the small subgraph conditioning method. They conjectured that a similar...
