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.

*Stuart Anderson - UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics*

It is a common feature among remote sensing technologies that very considerable progress can be made with relatively simple physical and mathematical models. This is often fortuitous, as without...

*Zahir Hussain - Manchester Metropolitan University*

This talk will provide a mathematical description of the onset of counter-rotating spiral vortices observed for boundary-layer flow over a family of slender rotating cones in quiescent fluid....

*Amandine Schaeffer - UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics & Sydney Institute for Marine Science*

Along southeastern Australia, the East Australian Current (EAC) strongly influences the circulation and watermass characteristics of the adjacent continental shelf. Dense water uplift resulting from...

*Yuehua Li - UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics*

Double diffusive convection is driven by two different density gradients that have different rates of diffusion. Alinear stability analysis indicated that it is possible that a steady state is...

*Cecilia Gonzalez Tokman - UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics*

Non-autonomous dynamical systems yield very flexible models for the study of time-dependent systems, such as oceanic and atmospheric flows. Multiplicative ergodic theorems (METs) encompass...

*Brian Powell - University of Hawai'i at Manoa*

Oxygen isotope (delta-18O) records from tropical coral skeletons are widely used for reconstructing tropical climate variability, particularly the El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO). Unfortunately,...

*Ryan Holmes - School of Earth Sciences, Stanford University*

Tropical instability waves (TIWs) and vortices (TIVs) in the equatorial Pacific Ocean exhibit energetic horizontal and vertical circulation characterized by regions of high Rossby number and low...

*Bishakhdatta Gayen - Research School of Earth Sciences, Australian National University*

Horizontal convection (HC) is driven by a horizontal difference in temperature or heat flux at a single horizontal boundary of a fluid. In a thermally equilibrated state net heat flux over the...

*Sharon Stephen - UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics*

I will discuss recent theoretical investigations into the stability of non-Newtonian flows. In particular, we consider crossflow instability of the flow due to a rotating disc for a shear-thinning...

*Kial Stewart - UNSW / Climate Change Research Institute*

Eddies are ubiquitous in the oceans. Certain circumstances permit interaction between the eddy and mean flow fields, requiring ocean models to either completely resolve the eddies or parameterize...
