Co-Lab Seminar  »

Associate Professor Linda Stals (MSI), Dr Josh Milthorpe (RSCS)
3pm 21 February 2020

On future extreme-scale computers, faults will become increasingly common as the number of individual components grows without a compensating improvement in reliability. We will explore a two-pronged complementary approach to both reduce the amount of redundancy and to speed up the recovery process.

Hyperplane arrangements and Hodge theory »

Professor Nick Proudfoot, (University of Oregon)
4pm 20 February 2020

The Top Heavy Conjecture is an elementary statement about linear algebra that was open for 43 years until its recent proof by Huh and Wang, using fancy algebraic geometry. I will describe this result and discuss associated generalizations.

Multiplicative orders of elements in finite fields »

Prof. Florian Breuer, University of Newcastle
4pm 13 February 2020

In this talk, I will outline some bounds which arise from counting certain partitions (for lower bounds) and the analytic class number formula (for upper bounds).

A reduced-order-model Bayesian obstacle detection algorithm »

Stuart Hawkins, Macquarie University
4pm 10 February 2020

We consider an efficient Bayesian algorithm for solving the inverse problem of locating and classifying certain obstacles using noisy far field data obtained by illuminating them with a wave.

Harmonic mean curvature flow and geometric inequalities »

Dr. Yingxiang Hu, Yau Mathematical Sciences Center, Tsinghua University, Beijing
2pm 7 January 2020

In this talk, we use the harmonic mean curvature flow to prove Alexandrov-Fenchel type inequalities for strictly convex hypersurfaces in hyperbolic space.

Vector-valued time-frequency analysis and the bilinear Hilbert transform »

Dr. Alex Amenta, Universität Bonn (Germany)
10am 10 December 2019

I will give an overview of how time-frequency analysis is used in proving these $L^p$-bounds, with focus on the recently understood setting of functions valued in UMD Banach spaces.
