DESCRIPTION:Symmetry is one of the essential and most visible patterns tha
t can be seen in nature. Starting from the left-right symmetry of the huma
n body\, all types of symmetry can be found in crystals\, plants\, animals
and nature as a whole. \n\nSimilarly\, principals of symmetry are also so
me of the fundamental and most useful tools in modern mathematical natural
science that play a major role in theory and applications. As a consequen
ce\, it is not surprising that the desire to understand the origin of life
\, based on the genetic code\, forces us to involve symmetry as a mathemat
ical concept. \n\nThe genetic code can be seen as a key to biological self
-organisation. All living organisms have the same molecular bases - an alp
habet consisting of four letters (nitrogenous bases): adenine\, cytosine\,
guanine\, and thymine. Linearly ordered sequences of these bases contain
the genetic information for synthesis of proteins in all forms of life. Th
us\, one of the most fascinating riddles of nature is to explain why the g
enetic code is as it is.\n\nGenetic coding possesses noise immunity which
is the fundamental feature that allows to pass on the genetic information
from parents to their descendants. Hence\, since the time of the discovery
of the genetic code\, scientists have tried to explain the noise immunity
of the genetic information. In this talk we will discuss recent results i
n mathematical modelling of the genetic code with respect to noise immunit
y\, in particular error-detection and error-correction.\n\nCheese and wine
to follow in the Maths common room (5pm-6pm)\n\nSpeakers: Prof. Lutz Str
üngmann

DESCRIPTION:Speaker: John Bamberg (UWA)\n\nTitle: Abstract ovals\n\nTime a
nd place: 16:00 Friday 09/02/2018 in Woolnough LT (note unusual location)\
n\nAbstract: This talk will be about abstract ovals which were introdu
ced in 1966 by Francis Buekenhout. In particular\, we will present some ne
w results\, that have some interesting connections with the theory of Mouf
ang sets and classical permutation group theory. This is joint work with T
im Harris and Tim Penttila.

DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Scott Harper (University of Bristol)\n\nTitle: Unifor
m Domination for Simple Groups\n\nTime and place: 16:00 Friday 23/02/2018
in Robert Street LT\n\nAbstract: It is well known that every finite simple
group can be generated by just two elements. In fact\, by a theorem of Gu
ralnick and Kantor\, there is a conjugacy class C such that for each non-i
dentity element x there exists an element y in C such that x and y generat
e the entire group. Motivated by this\, we introduce a new invariant for f
inite groups: the uniform domination number. This is the minimal size of a
subset S of conjugate elements such that for each non-identity element x
there exists an element s in S such that x and s generate the group. This
invariant arises naturally in the study of generating graphs. \n\nIn this
talk\, I will present recent joint work with Tim Burness\, which establish
es best possible results on the uniform domination number for finite simpl
e groups\, using a mix of probabilistic and computational methods\, togeth
er with recent results on the base sizes of primitive permutation groups.\

Mathematics and Statistics tea room at 15:40. The seminar starts at 16:00
\, and after 17:05 we go to the UniClub or Student Tavern for a drink.\n
