Friday 10
11:00 - SEMINAR - Development of a Mathematical Modeling Platform to Explore Effects of Different Drug Treatments in Patients with Multiple Myeloma More Information
Multiple Myeloma (MM) is an incurable blood cancer with 70% of patients exhibiting osteolytic bone lesions. Besides use of bisphosphonates such as Pamidronate, a couple of novel targeted agents such as Denosumab have shown great promise to improve MM-driven bone loss. Just recently, an integrated (...)
Tuesday 21
18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - How to think about the structure and dynamics of the brain using mathematics Website | More Information
This talk will be a brief introduction to two topics on which it has proved possible to learn about how the brain may work using methods of mathematical physics. It has some relevance to the way in which theorists approach the problems of the shape, structure, and distribution of galaxies, and of (...)

15:00 - SEMINAR - Applied Mathematics Seminar : Numerical methods for the HJB equations arising in European and American option pricing with proportional transaction costs More Information
We investigate the numerical methods for the solution of the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman (HJB) equations arising in European and American option pricing with proportional transaction costs. We propose a penalty approach combined with a finite difference scheme to solve the HJB equations. We first (...)

Thursday 03
18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - The 2009 Clay-Mahler Public Lecture: The Cosmic Distance Ladder : A public lecture by Professor Terence Tao, Professor of Mathematics, UCLA Website | More Information
Speaker: Professor Terence Tao, Professor of Mathematics, UCLA.

How do we know the distances from the earth to the sun and moon, from the sun to the other planets, and from the sun to other stars and distant galaxies? Clearly we cannot measure these directly. Nevertheless there are (...)
Friday 04
13:00 - EVENT - The 2009 Clay-Mahler Colloquium: Compressed Sensing : A specialist Colloquium with Professor Terence Tao, Professor of Mathematics, UCLA Website | More Information
Suppose one wants to recover an unknown signal x in R^n from a given vector Ax=b in R^m of linear measurements of the signal x. If the number of measurements m is less than the degrees of freedom n of the signal, then the problem is underdetermined and the solution x is not unique. However, if we (...)
Monday 07
14:00 - PRESENTATION - Colloquium: Bringing mathematics to life More Information
Rachel Thomas, a graduate of the UWA maths department, has worked for the Millennium Mathematics Project (MMP) at the University of Cambridge for the past 9 years. The MMP promotes mathematics to the wider community through a range of projects, including an online maths clubs for students aged 5-19 (...)
Tuesday 08
11:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar: Involutions in Classical Groups More Information
Groups and Combinatorics Seminar

Michael Giudici

will speak on

Involutions in Classical Groups

at 11am in Maths Lecture Room 1 on 8th of September

Abstract:

Involutions played a key role in the Classification of Finite Simple Groups (...)
Thursday 10
14:00 - SEMINAR - Statistics Seminar : Near Matches and Applications More Information
Abstract:

When two judges rank the same n objects, we say a “near match of order k” occurs on the i-th object if their ranks for this, are close to within k. Of interest is the number of near matches in such a context, and its large-sample distribution. Applications to a nonparametric (...)
Friday 11
16:00 - SEMINAR - Mathematics Colloquium : The Bock iteration for the ODE estimation problem More Information
Abstract:

The Bock iteration (Bock, 1983) is a method for the minimization of an objective function in the form of a sum of squares subject to a set of equality constraints. It was formulated originally as a method for solving the problem of estimating parameters in a system of (...)

Michael Pauley: Decoupling the equations for null Lie quadratics

Riemannian cubics are solutions to a variational problem used to interpolate points in (semi-)Riemannian manifolds. They generalise cubic polynomials in Euclidean space. If the manifold is a Lie group, the equation for a (...)
