Colloquium: The Markovian binary tree applied to demography and conservation biology

When:Friday 27 Oct Where: Ingkarni Wardli B17 Presented by Dr Sophie Hautphenne, University of Melbourne Abstract: Markovian binary trees form a general and tractable class of continuous-time branching processes, which makes them well-suited for real-world applications. Thanks to their appealing probabilistic and computational features, these processes have proven to be an excellent modelling tool for […]

Colloquium: Understanding burn injuries and first aid treatment using simple mathematical models

Friday 13 October Ingkarni Wardli B17 Professor Mat Simpson, Queensland University of Technology Abstract: Scald burns from accidental exposure to hot liquids are the most common cause of burn injury in children. Over 2000 children are treated for accidental burn injuries in Australia each year. Despite the frequency of these injuries, basic questions about the […]

Fri 28 July, 2017: Exact coherent structures in high speed flows

This Friday, 28 July, we have a School Colloquium with Prof Philip Hall from Monash University. The talk is in Ingkarni Wardli B17 at 15:10. Abstract: In recent years, there has been much interest in the relevance of nonlinear solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations to fully turbulent flows. The solutions must be calculated numerically at […]

12:10 Fri 5 May, 2017: Hodge theory on the moduli space of Riemann surfaces

 Napier 209 :: Jesse Gell-Redman :: University of Melbourne Abstract… The Hodge theorem on a closed Riemannian manifold identifies the deRham cohomology with the space of harmonic differential forms. Although there are various extensions of the Hodge theorem to singular or complete but non-compact spaces, when there is an identification of L^2 Harmonic forms with […]
