Undergraduate Colloquium: Some mathematics around the Schrodinger equation. »

Dr Lysianne Hari (Besancon, France)
5pm 13 March 2018

Lysianne will (lightly) introduce us to quantum mechanics and its fundamental Schrodinger equation, including how to solve its ridiculously fashionable non-linear incarnation.

Dual and classical generators of Artin groups of spherical type »

Thomas Gobet (Sydney)
2.30pm 13 March 2018

The aim of the talk is to explain how to express the generators of the braid group coming from the dual braid monoid (and more generally the simples, that is, the divisors of the Garside element of the dual monoid) in terms of the classical generators.

Weak subordination of multivariate Lévy processes »

Kevin Lu (MSI)
11.30am 13 March 2018

In our simulations, we find that maximum likelihood produces a better fit when a Fourier invertibility condition holds, while digital moment estimation produces a better fit when it doesn't.

Mutation in populations governed by a Galton-Watson branching process »

Assoc. Prof. Conrad Burden (MSI)
4pm 5 March 2018

In this talk I will describe a multi-type branching process, in which the population is divided into a finite number of allele types.

Perverse sheaves on hyperplane arrangements and gluing »

Asilata Bapat (ANU)
3pm 2 March 2018

I'll describe the analogue on the quiver side of the natural gluing, or "recollement", structure of this category of perverse sheaves.

Localising modules, rings, and spectra. »

Jack Davies
3.30pm 27 February 2018
