Prof Tony Guttmann (via Access Grid) - University of Melbourne
Self-avoiding walks (SAWs) are widely studied as a problem in algebraic combinatorics by mathematicians, as aproblem in algorithm design by computer scientists, as a model of phase transitions by...

Claus Ringel - University of Bielefeld
The famous Fibonacci numbers 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, ... have attracted a lot of interest in and outside of mathematics. They play an important role in applications in biology, but also in...

Prof Frank Garvan (via Access Grid) - University of Florida
Let spt(n) denote the number of smallest parts in the partitions of n. In 2008, Andrews found surprising congruences for the spt-function mod 5, 7 and 13. We discuss new congruences for spt(n) mod...

Trevor Hastie (via Access Grid) - Stanford University
In a statistical world faced with an explosion of data, regularization has become an important ingredient. In many problems, we have many more variables than observations, and the lasso penalty and...
