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

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 (...)

15:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Regular orbits of Sym(n) and Alt(n) on irreducible representations More Information
Abstract:

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 (...)

15:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Coprime actions of finite linear groups More Information
Abstract:

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 (...)

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

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 (...)

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 (...)

12:00 - SEMINAR - Confronting the killer: epidemiology and prevention of pneumonia in Papua New Guinean children Website | More Information
The Lung Institute of WA invites you to a free seminar on: "Confronting the killer: epidemiology and prevention of pneumonia in Papua New Guinean children" by Associate Professor Deborah Lehmann. A light lunch will be served from 12.00pm with a 12.30pm – 1.30pm presentation.

13:00 - SEMINAR - Integrable-like behavior in the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam model Website | More Information
In 1950’s Fermi, motivated by fundamental questions of statistical mechanics, started a numerical experiment in collaboration with Pasta and Ulam to test the ergodic properties of nonlinear dynamical systems. The chosen so-called FPU system was a one dimensional chain of N nonlinear coupled (...)
Friday 22
11:00 - SEMINAR - Self-avoiding walks—rigorous and non-rigorous results Website | More Information
Self-avoiding walks (SAWs) are widely studied as a problem in algebraic combinatorics by mathematicians, as a problem in algorithm design by computer scientists, as a model of phase transitions by mathematical physicists and as a model of polymers in dilute solution by chemists.
