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.

Mikhail Isaev - UNSW Sydney
Let $T$ be a uniform random tree on $n$ vertices. We are interested in the distribution of $F(T)$, where the function $F$ could depend significantly on the tree structure. It is natural to use Prüfer...

Shenwei Huang - UNSW, School of Computer Science and Engineering
An even hole is an induced cycle of even length 4 or more. A cap is a cycle of length at least 5 with exactly one chord and that chord creates a triangle with the cycle. In this talk, we consider (...

Changhao Chen - UNSW Sydney
Recently there has been a growing interest in studying finite field versions of some classical problems arising from Euclidean spaces. In this talk we study the finite field version of a basic...

Fiona Skerman - University of Bristol
An important problem in network analysis is to identify highly connected components or 'communities'. Most popular clustering algorithms work by approximately optimising modularity. Given a graph G,...

Yasmeen Shameen - Indian institute of Science Education and Research, Pune, INDIA
Covering arrays are a relaxation of orthogonal arrays to covering hypothesis that have been successfully applied in the design of test suites for testing systems such as software, circuits and...

Peter Ayre - UNSW
 A hypergraph is $k$-uniform if every hyperedge contains $k$ vertices. A colouring of a hypergraph is an assignment of colours to the vertices such that no hyperedge is monochromatic. We consider the...

Adam Mammoliti - UNSW
Extremal Set Theory is a branch of Extremal Combinatorics where one characterises the maximum size of a family of sets with certain restriction on them. The Erdős-Ko-Rado Theorem is a classical...

Amin Coja-Oghlan - Goethe University
 Let d be a fixed positive number. It is well-known that locally around a randomly chosen vertex, the random graph G(n,d/n) is merely a tree with high probability. Nonetheless, the chromatic number...
