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 […]

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

┬áNapier 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 […]

Fri 28 Apr, 2017 15:10: Hyperbolic geometry and knots

Engineering South S111 :: A/Prof Jessica Purcell :: Monash University Abstract: It has been known since the early 1980s that the complement of a knot or link decomposes into geometric pieces, and the most common geometry is hyperbolic. However, the connections between hyperbolic geometry and other knot and link invariants are not well-understood. Conjectured connections […]

Fri 28 April 2017 12:10 Geometric limits of knot complements

Napier 209 :: Jessica Purcell :: Monash University Abstract: The complement of a knot often admits a hyperbolic metric: a metric with constant curvature -1. In this talk, we will investigate sequences of hyperbolic knots, and the possible spaces they converge to as a geometric limit. In particular, we show that there exist hyperbolic knots […]

Fri 7 Aug 2015 12:10: Gromov’s method of convex integration and applications to minimal surfaces

Ingkarni Wardli B17 :: Finnur Larusson :: The University of Adelaide Abstract: We start by considering an applied problem. You are interested in buying a used car. The price is tempting, but the car has a curious defect, so it is not clear whether you can even take it for a test drive. This problem […]
