Thursday 12 
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 (...)

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  TALK  Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium : How big is the nth prime?

More Information

Abstract: There is a striking connection between the zeroes of the Riemann zetafunction and the distribution of the primes. In this talk I shall mention some analytic properties of the zetafunction that when known explicitly enable one to estimate, very accurately, the size of the nth prime (...)

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 subnanometer 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 
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 (...)

13:00  EVENT  Mathematica 11, what's new? : A demonstration of the capabilities of the latest version of Mathematica.

More Information

For 30 years, Wolfram Research has been serving Educators and Researchers. In the past 10 years, we have introduced many award winning technology innovations like WolframAlpha Pro, Wolfram SystemModeler, Wolfram Programming Lab, and Natural Language computation. Join Craig Bauling as he guides (...)

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 nonequilibrium 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 (...)

13:00  SEMINAR  Lover or fighter: you can’t have it all : School of Human Sciences Seminar Series

More Information

Bio: Leigh received his PhD from Nottingham University in 1986 and held a series of postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Liverpool until 1995 when he moved to UWA. He was awarded an ARC Federation Fellowship in 2004 and was elected to the Australian Academy in 2009. He is currently Editor (...)

Thursday 01 
16:00  SEMINAR  Mathematics and Statistics colloquium : Generalisations and variations of the Monty Hall Problem

More Information

The Monty Hall problem is a probability puzzle based on an American television game show. Some generalisations of the original problem are considered here:
 The probability distribution is generalised from equal likelihood to an arbitrary known prior distribution, with the number of doors changed (...)

This year's Australian Institute of Physics WA Postgraduate Student Conference will be held at the University of Western Australia on Thursday the 15th of November.
This event is open to all WA students researching in physics or physicsrelated subjects and is the perfect opportunity for (...)

Thursday 22 
16:00  SEMINAR  Mathematics and Statistics colloquium : Nonlocal equations, atom dislocation dynamics in crystals, and chaotic orbits

More Information

In this talk, we introduce some basics of nonlocal equations, with some applications in mind coming from physics and material sciences.
In particular, the equation taken into account comes from a model, developed by Rudolf Peierls and Frank Nabarro, that describes the edge dislocation of atoms in (...)
