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.

Ian Lizarraga - University of Sydney
Recent work on multiple-timescale dynamical systems has overwhelmingly focused on models where there is a global identification of “slow” versus “fast” variables throughout the phase space. But in...

Emeritus Professor Colin Rogers - UNSW
The combined action of reciprocal and integral-type transformations is here used to sequentially reduce to canonical form a class of nonlinear moving boundary problems involving heterogeneity....

Ilknur Tulunay - UNSW School of Maths and Stats
ST-metric, arising from relative entropy can be thought as the distance between two discrete curves in the unit interval. Any data set can also be viewed as a discrete curve and can be transformed...

 Abhishek Bhardwaj - ANU
 Non-negative polynomials are fundamental objects of study in real algebraic geometry. Testing the non-negativity of polynomials is known to be NP hard. Because of this, one generally looks to...

Benoît Pasquier - Department of Earth System Science of the University of California
 Steady-state systems of nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs) are common in engineering and the biogeosciences. These systems are typically controlled by parameters that can be estimated...

Marat Akhmet - Middle East Technical University, Turkey,
 The talk introduces innovations in the areas of dynamical systems, chaos, and differential equations. It first shows that the classical theory of dynamical systems, pioneered by H.Poincare and...

Liqun Qi - Department of Applied Mathematics, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Semisimple Lie algebras have been completely classified by Cartan and Killing.  The Levi theorem states that every finite dimensional Lie algebra is isomorphic to a semidirect sum of its largest...

Vladimir Dragovic - UT Dallas
  A new method of construction of algebro-geometric solutions of  Schlesinger systems is presented. For an elliptic curve represented as a ramified double covering of CP^1, a meromorphic differential...

Dr Stephen J Maher - Zuse Institute Berlin / Lancaster University
When solving the linear programming (LP) relaxation of a mixed-integer program (MIP) with column generation, columns might be generated that are not needed to express any integer optimal solution of...

Péter Koltai - Freie Universität Berlin
In the first part of this talk a data-based Markov-chain model is constructed for the probabilistic evolution of marine debris from the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370. Based on the beaching...
