15:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, The structure of 3-separations of matroids More Information

In this talk, I will give an introduction to decomposition theory of 3-connected matroids. In order to make it more accessible I will also introduce some related definitions and examples.

 September 2013
Friday 06
15:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Connections between Graph Theory & Combinatorics on Words More Information

A string or word is usually thought of as a sequence of letters drawn from some alphabet. Applications to bioinformatics and other areas suggest the utility of defining strings on subsets of the alphabet instead -- so-called "indeterminate" strings. I describe (...)
Friday 13
15:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, On The Non-commuting Graph More Information

In this talk, we will consider the non-commuting graph of a non-abelian finite group G; its vertex set is the set of non-central elements of G, and two distinct vertices x and y are joined by an edge if they do not commute together. Actually, we study some properties of the (...)
Wednesday 18
18:00 - PRESENTATION - Becoming an Engineer with UWA - 18 September 2013 Website | More Information
'Becoming an Engineer with UWA' info evening: Prospective students and their parents are invited to attend one of our info sessions to learn more about how to achieve an engineering career with UWA. Please RSVP via https://www.ecm.uwa.edu.au/community/engineering-info-evenings
Thursday 19
14:00 - SEMINAR - Image Processing with Mathematica More Information
Mathematica exhibits a comprehensive set of state-of-the-art image processing and analysis functions for two and three-dimensional image composition, segmentation, feature detection, transformation, alignment, and restoration. The talk will touch several image processing application areas and (...)
Friday 20
15:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Generalised quadrangles constructed from groups More Information

This is just a survey talk of various ways to construct all of the known finite generalised quadrangles starting with a group and a configuration of subgroups of that group. In particular, the speaker will give a summary of where one of the "retreat" problems is at.
Wednesday 25
11:00 - SEMINAR - Mathematics Colloquium: The Cohen-Lenstra heuristics: from arithmetic to topology and back again More Information
Akshay Venkatesh (Stanford) Mahler Lecturer and IAS Professor-at-Large

will speak on

The Cohen-Lenstra heuristics: from arithmetic to topology and back again.

at 11am in the Science Library Access Grid room.

I will discuss some models of (...)

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Two centuries of prime numbers Website | More Information
The 2013 Mahler Lecture by Akshay Venkatesh, Professor of Mathematics at Stanford University.

Surprisingly, there have been fundamental new discoveries about prime numbers in the last decade, most recently by Yitang Zhang a few months ago. In this lecture, Professor Venkatesh will survey (...)
Friday 27
15:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Straight-line programs with memory and applications to computational group theory More Information

Straight-line programs offer a method for encoding group computations in a "black box" sense, namely without using specifics of the group's representation or how the group operations are performed. We advocate that straight-line programs designed for group (...)

Friday 11
15:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Multiply tiling Euclidean space by translating a convex object More Information

We study the problem of covering Euclidean space R^d by possibly overlapping translates of a convex body P, such that almost every point is covered exactly k times, for a fixed integer k. Such a covering of Euclidean space by translations is called a k-tiling. We will first (...)
Friday 18
15:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Regular orbits of Sym(n) and Alt(n) on irreducible representations More Information

Given a finite group G and a faithful irreducible FG-module V where F is a field of prime order, we can ask whether G has a regular orbit on the vectors of V. This problem is related to determining which primitive permutation groups of affine type have a base of size 2, as well (...)
Thursday 24
18:00 - LECTURE - 27th Dr George Hondros Memorial Lecture : Unique designs — the power of multidisciplinary collaboration. Delivered by Tristram Carfrae Award-Winning Structural Engineer, Director and Arup Fellow. More Information
Tristram Carfrae is responsible for the design of an impressive array of award-winning buildings and is regarded internationally as a leading designer of light weight long-span structures.

In collaborating with some of the world’s best architects, he has a reputation for challenging the (...)
Friday 25
15:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Coprime actions of finite linear groups More Information

Let H be a finite linear group acting completely reducibly on a finite vector space V. Gabriel Navarro asked: if the H-orbits containing vectors a and b have coprime lengths m and n, is there an H-orbit of length mn? We answered, by showing that the H-orbit containing a + b (...)

Friday 01
15:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Algebraic geometry codes More Information

Codes arising from algebraic geometry, first introduced by Goppa, gained attention when Tsfasman–Vladut–Zink used them to improve the Gilbert-Varshamow bound. We will give a gentle introduction to some of the beautiful ideas from algebraic geometry used to build these codes (...)
Tuesday 12
9:00 - COURSE - R Basics : A Statistics Short Course Website | More Information
R is a free and extremely powerful language and software environment for statistical computing, data analysis, and graphics. The course is designed for those who have no experience with R, but have a basic understanding of statistics. The course will include: Introduction to R: How to install R on (...)
Wednesday 13
9:00 - EVENT - Life-course Analysis. Introductory Lecture and Workshop Website | More Information
Professor Tilling main areas of expertise are in methods for analysing exposures and outcomes across the life-course, and in methods for dealing with missing data. She has a mathematical background, an MSc in Applied Statistics and a PhD in Epidemiology, together with more than 15 years’ experience (...)
Thursday 14
9:00 - COURSE - Design and Analysis of Experiments : A Short Course using R Website | More Information
The course will cover material ranging from a review of simple one-way ANOVA, to more complex designs and analyses including crossed and nested factors with fixed and random effects.The emphasis throughout will be placed on applications rather than theory. The statistical package R and R Commander (...)
