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.

Prof. Michael Small - University of Western Australia
Over the last 8 years, several techniques have been developed to extract signatures of a deterministic dynamical system from time series dynamics, via a network construction. However, most of these...

Prof. Liqun Qi - The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Markov chain, named after Russian mathematician Andrey Markov, is a stochastic model describing a sequence of possible events in which the probability of each event depends only on the state...

Prof. Xiaojun Chen - The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Minimization problems with nonsmooth, nonconvex, perhaps even non-Lipschitz regularization terms have wide applications in image restoration, signal reconstruction and variable selection.  On $L_p$...

Dr. Janosch Rieger - Imperial College London
The invention of computerised tomography (CT) was a major breakthrough, because it was the first technology which allowed to reconstruct a full 3d picture of the human body. Now, several decades...

Cleve Moler - MathWorks
Cleve Moler will share his story about the history of MATLAB and his inspirations that led to it. MATLAB is now a full-featured technical computing environment, but it started as a simple “Matrix...

Dr Daniel Karrasch - Technical University of Munich, Germany
Advective transport of scalar quantities through surfaces is of fundamental importance in many scientific applications. From the Eulerian perspective of the surface it can be quantified by the well-...

Prof. Assen Donchev - Mathematical Reviews and The University of Michigan
This talk gives a survey on convergence results for various Newton-type methods including inexact methods. Extensions to non-smooth equations and variational inequalities will be shown. Application...

Dr. Stephen Maher - Zuse Institute Berlin, Germany
The tail assignment problem is a critical part of the airline planning process that is tasked with satisfying the operational constraints for all aircraft. The aim of this paper is to develop an ...

Dr. Vera Roshchina - RMIT University
The facial structure of general closed convex cones can be very complex (often surprisingly so). I will talk about two notions that capture the regularity properties of facial arrangements: facial...

Prof. Gue Myung Lee - Pukyong National University, Korea
In this talk, we consider the class of polynomial optimization problems with inequality and equality constraints, in which every problem of the class is obtained by perturbations of the objective...
