*Arnaud Brothier - University of New South Wales*

The Thompson group is the group of homeomorphisms of [0,1] that are piecewise linear with slopes a power of 2 and breakpoints a dyadic rational. It is one of the most studied discrete group which...

*Prof. Per Lötstedt - Uppsala University, Sweden*

Stochastic models are needed to model the diffusing and reacting molecules in biological cells. The reason is that the number of molecules of each chemical species is low and the reactions occur with...

*Ian Doust - UNSW*

Distance geometry is the characterization and study of sets of points based only on given values of the distances between member pairs. A fundamental problem lies in deciding whether you can identify...

*Edward McDonald - UNSW*

In 1994 Alain Connes introduced a ``quantised" calculus, based on operator theoretic expressions which play roles analogous to derivatives and differentials in ordinary calculus. Quantised calculus...

*Michael Cowling - School of Mathematics and Statistics*

A finitely generated group has polynomial growth if the set of all elements which may be expressed as a product of at most $n$ generators and their inverses grows polynomially in $n$. Gromov proved...

*Alessandro Ottazzi - School of Mathematics and Statistics*

We give the metric and the analytic definition of different kind of maps in ${\mathbb R}^n$. We sketch a proof of the fact that isometries are affine maps and that conformal maps are Moebius...

*Michael Cowling - UNSW Australia*

This is about various classes of mappings of $\mathbb{R}^n$ to $\mathbb{R}^n$ that do not distort shape too much. The main results are that an infinitesimal condition (quasiconformality) is...

*Steven Lord - Adelaide*

The canonical trace of nuclear operators, which is the extension of the matrix trace in finite linear algebra to the infinite dimensional linear algebra of Hilbert space, is often considered the only...
