Andy Archer - Liquid droplets on a surface

14:00 - 14:50 20 November 2019

Andy Archer (Loughborough University) joins us for the Physical Applied Mathematics Series, back in our usual room of Frank Adams 1, Alan Turing Building. The talk will begin with an introduction to the science of what determines the behaviour of a liquid on a on a surface and giving an overview of some of the different theories that can be u..

SIAM 3 Minute Thesis

15:00 - 16:30 22 November 2019

An 80,000-word thesis would take 9 hours to present; can you do it in just 3 minutes and a single slide? The Manchester SIAM-IMA Student Chapter is proud to organize the first 3-Minute Thesis Competition at the Department of Mathematics on November 22, 2019 at 15:00. Do you think you can present your thesis project in just three minutes? If s..

Joni Teravainen (Oxford) - Multiplicative functions in short arithmetic progressions

15:00 - 16:00 26 November 2019

Join us for this research seminar, part of the Number Theory Seminar Series. Abstract: A celebrated theorem of Matomäki and Radziwi?? states that the partial sums of a bounded multiplicative function exhibit cancellation in almost all short intervals unless the function is pretentious in a certain well-defined sense. I will discuss joint wo..

Martin Benning - Deep learning as optimal control problems

12:00 - 13:00 26 November 2019

Join us for this research seminar, part of the SQUIDS (Statistics, quantification of uncertainty, inverse problems and data science) seminar series. Abstract: We consider recent works where deep neural networks have been interpreted as discretisations of an optimal control problem subject to an ordinary differential equation constraint. We re..

Andrew Titman - Testing the Markov assumption in general multi-state models

14:00 - 27 November 2019

Andrew Titman (Lancaster University) joins us for the Statistics seminar series. Recently there has been interest in the development of estimators of the transition probabilities for right-censored data that are robust to departures from the Markov assumption. The landmark Aalen-Johansen (LMAJ) [1] estimator is robust to non-Markov processes,..

Apala Majumdar - Physical Applied Mathematics Seminar

14:00 - 14:50 27 November 2019

Apala Majumdar (Bath) joins us for the Physical Applied Mathematics Series.

Jake Harris and Ellie Johnstone - Informal Applied Mathematics Seminar

15:00 - 16:00 29 November 2019

The Informal Applied Mathematics seminar will continue with a double bill from Jake Harris and Ellie Johnstone. Talks will take place in Frank Adams 2 (next to the Alan Turing Building's kitchen), with complimentary hot drinks and biscuits from 2.45pm on the atrium bridge. Title and abstracts for the talks can be found below. Jake Harris:..

Jon Pitchford - Mathematics in the Life Sciences Seminar

14:00 - 14:50 02 December 2019

(Room 3.44b Simon Building) Join us for this seminar by Jon Pitchford (York) as part of the Mathematics in the Life Sciences Series. Abstract to follow. To subscribe to the mailing list for this event series, please send an e-mail with the phrase “subscribe math-lifesci-seminar” in the message body to listserv@listserv.manchester.ac.uk

Kyle Pratt (Oxford) - Low-lying zeros of Dirichlet L-functions

15:00 - 16:00 03 December 2019

Join us for this research seminar, part of the Number Theory Seminar Series. Abstract: I will present work in progress with Sary Drappeau and Maksym Radziwill on low-lying zeros of Dirichlet L-functions. By way of motivation I will discuss some results on the spacings of zeros of the Riemann zeta function, and the conjectures of Katz and Sar..

Richard Nickl - Statistical guarantees for the Bayesian approach to inverse problems

12:00 - 13:00 03 December 2019

Join us for this research seminar, part of the SQUIDS (Statistics, quantification of uncertainty, inverse problems and data science) seminar series. Abstract: Bayes methods for inverse problems have become very popular in applied mathematics in the last decade after seminal work by Persi Diaconis and Andrew Stuart. They provide reconstruction..
