Upcoming Colloquiums Title: Topological Data Analysis 15:10 Fri 31 August, 2018 :: Napier 208 :: Dr Vanessa Robins :: Australian National University Abstract: Topological Data Analysis has grown out of work focussed on deriving qualitative and yet quantifiable information about the shape of data. The underlying assumption is that knowledge of shape – the way […]

Title:¬†Calculating optimal limits for transacting credit card customers 15:10 Fri 2 Mar, 2018 :: Horace Lamb 1022 :: Prof Peter Taylor :: University of Melbourne Abstract:¬†Credit card users can roughly be divided into `transactors’, who pay off their balance each month, and `revolvers’, who maintain an outstanding balance, on which they pay substantial interest. In […]

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 […]

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 […]
