Baxter 2020: Introductory blackboard lectures

10 February 2020

These lectures, aimed at research students in mathematics or physics, will cover the background to some of the key ideas and developments in the theory of integrability and its applications. The Baxter 2020: Introductory blackboard lectures is an extension of the Frontiers in Integrability workshop being held from 11 - 14 February 2020.

Registration for Baxter 2020: Introductory blackboard lectures is separate to registration for Baxter 2020: Frontiers in Integrability.

This event is part of the MSI Special Year 2020 in Mathematical Physics and is a collaboration with the Research School of Physics, ANU.

  • Paul Fendley (University of Oxford, UK)
  • Clare Dunning (University of Kent, UK)
  • Yang Shi (Flinders University, Adelaide)
  • Masahito Yamazaki (IPMU, Tokyo)

Code of conduct

The Mathematical Sciences Institute (MSI) special year is committed to ensuring all workshops, conferences and seminars are accessible to a diverse range of participants. We aim to create a safe, respectful and supportive environment to allow free flow of information, discussions and ideas. All staff and students have the right to be treated with courtesy, fairness and professionalism. Discriminatory or harassing behaviour will not be tolerated.

The essential part of maintaining a safe and respectful work environment is to ensure that individuals report any witnessed or experienced discrimination or harassment to the organiser’s attention, or a member of staff you feel comfortable talking to. If you would like to contact the department anonymously, please email

We ask all participants to review the ANU Code of Conduct and maintain the principles of the document for the duration of the workshop.

About Canberra

Canberra is located in the Australian Capital Territory, on the ancient lands of the Ngunnawal people, who have lived here for over 20,000 years. Canberra’s name is thought to mean ‘meeting place’, derived from the Aboriginal word Kamberra. European settlers arrived in the 1830s, and the area won selection by ballot for the federal capital in 1908. Since then the ‘Bush Capital’ has grown to become the proud home of the Australian story, with a growing population of around 390,000.

Canberra hosts a wide range of tourist attractions, including various national museums, galleries and Parliament House, as well as beautiful parks and walking trails. Several attractions are within walking distance of the ANU campus, including the National Museum of Australia and the Australian National Botanic Gardens. Canberra is also a fantastic base from which to explore the many treasures of the surrounding region, including historic townships, beautiful coastlines and the famous Snowy Mountains. Learn more about what to do and see during your stay in Canberra.


International visitors to Australia require a visa or an electronic travel authority (ETA) prior to arrival. It is your responsibility to ensure documentation is correct and complete before you commence your journey. Visit the Australian Immigration and Citizenship website for information about visas and ETAs.


There are many ways to get around Canberra. Below is some useful information about Bus & Taxi transport around the ANU, the Airport and surrounding areas.


If you are catching a taxi or Uber to the ANU Mathematical Sciences Institute, ask to be taken to Building #145, Science Road, ANU. We are located close to the Ian Ross Building and the ANU gym. A Taxi from the airport will usually cost around $40 and will take roughly 15 minutes. Pricing and time may vary depending on traffic.

Phone Canberra Elite Taxis on 13 22 27 to book a taxi.


Canberra buses are a cheap and easy way of getting around town once you're here. View bus services and fares information on the Transport Canberra website.

To travel just use your MyWay card or pay a cash fare to the driver when boarding. A single adult trip when paying cash will cost $4.80 with cheaper fares for students and children. Significant savings can be made when travelling with MyWay. View MyWay and Fares information.

Canberra Airport
