Thursday 15 
16:00  SEMINAR  Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium : Prof. Alistair Mees: Quantitative Trading

More Information

There's a widespread belief that people who are good at maths can go into finance and become obscenely rich. This talk tries to put that in perspective by describing a common approach to algorithmic trading, and exploring some of the reasons why it's harder than it sounds.

16:00  SEMINAR  Mathematics and Statistics colloquium : Staying relevant: claiming a space for Statisticians in Data Science

More Information

Despite Statistics being the traditional field for data analysis, people with formal statistical training form a relatively small segment of the Data Science community. Indeed, it is easy to conclude that the influence of Statistics on the field is waning: for instance, Python is slightly more (...)

16:00  SEMINAR  Mathematics and Statistics colloquium : Bounding the number of symmetries of a graph

More Information

Graphs (also called networks) with a high degree of symmetry are particularly nice objects to study mathematically. When studying the symmetries of a graph it is often useful to look at the local symmetries, that is, those that fix a particular vertex. An important question then becomes whether or (...)
