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.
Wednesday 21
15:30 - SEMINAR - Reigniting the role of physics in medicine More Information
Medical Physics is a highly interdisciplinary field at the intersection between physics and medicine and biology. Medical Physics is aiming at development of novel applications of physical processes and techniques in various areas of medicine and biology. Medical Physics had and continues to have (...)
Friday 23
15:00 - SEMINAR - Stabilized Frequency Transfer for Radio Astronomy and Space Science Applications More Information
The transmission of high-precision frequency references between remote locations is crucial to a wide range of industrial and scientific applications including precision navigation, geodesy, radio astronomy, comparison of atomic timescales, and tests of General Relativity and variations in (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - Maths and Stats Colloquium : Have you ever wondered what is a fluid theory? More Information
Fluid models are widely employed in many fields of science, ranging from astronomy and physics to biology and chemistry. The fundamental principle, and motivation, behind fluid models is to provide an effective macroscopic representation of the collective behaviour arising from a large number of (...)

Thursday 03
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 (...)
Thursday 17
16:00 - TALK - Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium : How big is the n-th prime? More Information
Abstract: There is a striking connection between the zeroes of the Riemann zeta-function and the distribution of the primes. In this talk I shall mention some analytic properties of the zeta-function that when known explicitly enable one to estimate, very accurately, the size of the n-th prime (...)
Monday 21
15:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - Industry Mentoring in STEM (IMNIS) : A prestigious mentoring program that connects PhD students in their 2nd year with high level industry leaders Website | More Information

 June 2018
Friday 22
15:30 - SEMINAR - Gravitational Wave and testing of gravity More Information
Gravitational waves (GWs) provide the excellent opportunity to test General Relativity in strong fields. In this talk, by comparing General Relativity and its alternative, the general screened modified gravity, we introduce the testing of gravity in solar system with PPN framework, in binary (...)

Monday 06
10:00 - SEMINAR - CMCA Seminar Series : Advanced EELS and camera technology for research in physics, chemistry and life sciences More Information
Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is arguably the most powerful technique for the characterisation of materials structures at the micro-, nano- and sub-nanometer scales. Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS)is a TEM technique for composition and chemical environment or chemical bonding (...)
Thursday 16
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 (...)
Wednesday 22
18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Sir Wallace Kyle Oration 2018 Website | More Information
The McCusker Centre for Citizenship at UWA, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Perth, invite you to the 2018 Sir Wallace Kyle Oration.

The late Air Chief Marshall, Sir Wallace Kyle, was an Honorary Doctor of Laws at The University of Western Australia and Governor of Western (...)
Thursday 30
16:00 - SEMINAR - Mathematics and Statistics colloquium : From the fractional Laplacian to the nonlocal minimal surfaces More Information
The fractional Laplacian is a nonlocal operator naturally arising in several branches of pure and applied mathematics. It presents intriguing features and possesses a great flexibility to a number of applications in physics, biology, numerics and finance. After briefly discussing the basics of this (...)

Thursday 11
16:00 - SEMINAR - Mathematics and Statistics colloquium : Interface dynamics: new mechanisms of stabilization and destabilization and structure of flow fields More Information
Interfacial mixing and transport are non-equilibrium processes coupling kinetic to macroscopic scales. They occur in fluids, plasmas and materials, over celestial events to atoms. Grasping their fundamentals can advance a broad range of disciplines in science, mathematics, and engineering. This (...)
