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.

Gurvan Madec - French National Centre for Scientific Research, LOCEAN-IPSL
Strong winds associated to Tropical Cyclones (TCs) trigger intense mixing in the upper ocean. While the resulting surface cooling feeds back negatively on TCs intensity, the associated sub-surface...

Prof. Wolf-Juergen Beyn - Bielefeld University, Germany
Nonlinear eigenvalue problems are ubiquitous in the stability analysis of nonlinear systems, such as vibrating systems or systems with delay. Numerical discretizations then lead to large and sparse...

Dr. Alexander Litvinenko - King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia
This talk consists of two parts. In the first part we use low-rank tensor methods to solve elliptic PDE with uncertain coefficients. We will start with discretization, applying Karhunen-Loeve...

Prof. Giulio Casati - Center for Complex Systems, Como-Italy
  Providing a sustainable supply of energy to the world’s population will become a major societal problem for the 21st century as fossil fuel supplies decrease and world demand and environmental...

Prof. Stefan Siegmund - Dresden University of Technology, Germany
Bone remodeling is a lifelong process where mature bone tissue is removed from the skeleton and new bone tissue is formed. These processes also control the reshaping or replacement of bone following...

Dr. Henry Y.T. Ngan - Hong Kong Baptist University
 Recently, there has been an increasing demand to develop inspection techniques on imaging and data science for complex data analysis. Inspection is a way to detect, identify and locate any possible...

Prof. Arieh Iserles - University of Cambridge
Many partial differential equations of interest are conveniently stated as a Cauchy problem. This is true in particular with regards to equations of quantum mechanics. There are important advantages...

Jan Zika - UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics
I will start by asking how we can detect changes in the global water cycle from changes in ocean salinity. The water cycle transports over 2.5x109 litres of fresh water from high salinity regions to...

Manoj Kumar Palani - UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics
Fractional Calculus, which generalises the notion of the derivative and integral to arbitrary order, can trace its origins back to when ‘ordinary’ calculus was founded, with contributions being made...

Sen Katherine Tay - UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics
Feedback is essential to the learning process. However, many educators face challenges in providing timely feedback in a scaled environment. In this study, we argue that a two-pronged strategy to...
