Full Seminar Archive

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.

Adam Rennie - ANU
Elliptic operators on noncompact manifolds typically do not define Fredholm operators on associated L2 [0, 1) spaces. This means that the index of such an operator is not defined. Not to be put off...

Prof. Victor Gayral - Universite de Reims
Dixmier traces on semifinite von Neumann algebras play an important role in noncommutative geometry (spectral characterization of the dimension of a manifold, construction of Yang-Mills type...

Guy Flint - UNSW
The classical result of the Dixmier approximation theorem states that the centre of a von Neumann algebra has a nonempty intersection with the norm-closure of the convex hull of every unitary orbit....

Alexandr Usachev - UNSW
Let {fn} be an orthogonal, uniformly bounded, normalised system. The classical Mercer theorem states that for every summable function the sequence of its 'Fourier' coefficients with respect to {fn}...

Dr. Dmitriy Zanin - Flinders University
Johnson and Schechtman proved a remarkable generalization of Rosenthal inequalities for symmetric spaces which contain Lp. Astashkin and Sukochev proved these inequalities to be valid for larger...

Prof. Thomas Tonev - University of Montana, Missoula
Abstract available in PDF.

Prof. F. Alberto Grunbaum - UC Berkeley
Quantum as well as classical random walks give a nice playground for the use of harmonic analysis, the theory of special functions, combinatorics, group representation theory, functional analysis,...

A/Prof. Guo Hua Zhang - Fudan University and UNSW
By a topological dynamical system we mean a compact metric space equipped with a self-homeomorphism. To understand the complexity of a given topological dynamical system, people are interested in the...

Dr. Nurulla Azamov - Flinders University
In this talk I shall discuss a new approach to scattering theory of self-adjoint operators by self-adjoint trace class perturbations. It is based on my paper "Absolutely continuous and singular...
