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.

Scott Lindstrom - University of Newcastle, Australia
Experimental discovery has long played an important role in research mathematics, even before the advent of modern computational tools. Many methods of antiquity are familiar to all of us, including...

Erika Hausenblas - Montanuniversitaet Leoben, Austria
The Gray Scott system is a two-component system of reaction-diffusion equations describing the interaction of two chemical substance, an inhibitor, and an activator. This system exhibits a large...

Rubén Campoy - University of Alicante (Spain)
Projection algorithms are powerful tools for finding common points in a collection of sets. The convergence of these algorithms to a point in the intersection is guaranteed, provided that the...

Dr Chayne Planiden - University of Woolongong
The VU-algorithm is a superlinearly convergent method for minimising nonsmooth convex functions. At each iteration, the algorithm separates the space into the V-space and the orthogonal U-space, such...

Associate Professor Ina Taralova - Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France
The collapsing of iterates of dynamical systems or at least the existence of very short periodic orbits, their non-constant invariant measure, and the easily recognized shape of the function in the...

Professor Sergei Fedotov - University of Manchester, UK
Levy walk is a fundamental notion in physics  and biology with numerous applications including T-cell motility in the brain and active transport within living cells. It is argued that living...

Professor Timoteo Carletti - Namur Center for Complex Systems (naXys), Université de Namur
  Spatially non-homogenous states (patterns) can spontaneously emerge in a multitude of Natural of human made systems. In many cases of interest, the interplay between nonlinearities and...

Professor Herbert E Huppert FRS - Institute of Theoretical Physics, Cambridge
After a short introduction to the mechanism and politics of fracking, the talk will concentrate on the fluid mechanics and elastodynamics of driving fluid into cracks and the quite different...

Dr Sung Yong Kim - Korean Advanced Institute for Science and Technology
This talk presents various aspects of coastal surface circulation based on multi-year observations of high-frequency radar-derived surface currents off the U.S. West coast.  The dynamics of the...

Dr Sophie Calabretto - Macquarie University, Sydney
The detection, and forecasting, of ocean vortices is important in the field of geophysical fluid dynamics as these eddies tend to play a major role in the underlying flow dynamics of the ocean. We...
