8:00 - SYMPOSIUM - AMSI BioInfoSummer Symposium Website | More Information
Held over 5 days, AMSI BioInfoSummer is a key training event in Australia, that allows attendees to develop their bioinformatics skills, national networks and employability, and nurtures the collaborations between the mathematics, statistics and information technology disciplines. AMSI (...)

10:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Advanced analytical work and skills needed in the corporate space : What does a corporate financial analyst do? More Information
This talk will look at some examples of advanced analytical work in the corporate space and the challenges operating in that environment can pose to a former academic. We’ll then look at some of the skills I believe are key to being successful as a data scientist in a commercial environment.

Thursday 21
16:00 - SEMINAR - Mathematics and Statistics colloquium : Particle modelling applied to industrial and biophysical problems More Information
Particle methods have capabilities that particularly suit numerical simulation of complex phenomena involved in industrial and biophysical application domains. The two core methods used in this talk are DEM (Discrete Element Method) and SPH (Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics). Coupling of these (...)

12:30 - PRESENTATION - Physics to fish with some whales on the side! Second International Indian Ocean Expedition 110°E repeat line : Prof. Lynnath Beckley presents on the month-long voyage that will repeat the 1960s Indian Ocean investigation. Website | More Information
In the 1960s, Australia made a significant contribution to the first International Indian Ocean Expedition. Now, nearly six decades later, a second Expedition is underway, and in May 2019 a multi-institutional team of 30 oceanographers will head offshore from Fremantle with the Australian Research (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - Mathematics and Statistics colloquium : Convex surfaces of constant Gauss curvature and partially free boundaries More Information
Consider a pair of parallel planes in and a strictly convex closed curve laying on one of the planes. Is there a convex hypersurface of constant Gauss curvature such that it is trapped between the planes, the curve is on its boundary, and the surface strikes the other plane at given constant (...)

14:00 - SEMINAR - The Action Principle: From Virgil's Aeneid to Quantum Walks : Variational principles in physics break new ground More Information
Variational principles have proven to be surprisingly fertile in physics. The principle of stationary action originally arising out of a derivation of optics and mechanics, remains central in modern physics being applied to fluid mechanics, the theory of relativity, quantum mechanics, and even (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar: Stephen Glasby, 4pm Sep 06 in Weatherburn LT More Information
Speaker: Stephen Glasby (University of Western Australia)

Title: Evaluating and estimating sums

Time and place: 4pm Friday 06 Sep 2019, Weatherburn LT

Abstract: In this expository talk I will show how "finite calculus" and hypergeometric identities can be (...)

13:00 - SEMINAR - Heat Therapy: An ancient practice to target modern diseases : School of Human Sciences, Seminar Series Website | More Information
Presentation Summary:Chronic heat exposure, in the form of saunas, hot water baths, and sweat lodges have been utilized in many cultures for thousands of years. While repetitive bouts of heat exposure is generally believed to be healthy, it is only recently that we are beginning to understand the (...)

10:00 - WORKSHOP - Quantum Simplicity: Introduction to Complexity Science in a Quantum World : A masterclass with Assistant Professor Mile Gu, Nanyang Technological University and UWA IAS Visiting Fellow. Website | More Information
Complexity and quantum science appear at first to be two fields that bear little relation. One deals with the science of the very large – seeking the understand how unexpected phenomena can emerge in vast systems consisting of many interacting components. Quantum theory, on the other hand, deals (...)
Thursday 19
14:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium : A Tour of the Mandelbrot Set More Information
The beautiful and complicated Mandelbrot set has captivated mathematicians since the first computer images of the set were drawn in the 1970s and 1980s. In this talk we’ll take a walk around the infinite intricacies of the Mandelbrot set, exploring the spirals, finding Fibonacci, and answering the (...)

16:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium : An invitation to finite geometry Website | More Information
Finite geometry involves the study of finitely many objects -- points, lines, planes, etc -- in analogy with classical geometric language and concepts. The exciting aspect of finite geometry is that it often shares properties of the usual Euclidean geometry, yet the finite-ness of the geometry (...)

16:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium : Control of pedestrian flows: social dynamics beyond modelling Website | More Information
We propose a model-free approach to analyse the movement of pedestrians in experiments and simulations. Using concepts from control and analysis of complex dynamical systems we set up a scheme which allows us to identify dynamical unstable signatures in pedestrian flows. These signatures are the (...)
