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

 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 […]
