### André Macedo (Reading) - Explicit methods for the Hasse norm principle

Abstract: Given an extension L/K of number fields, we say that the Hasse norm principle (HNP) holds if every non-zero element of K which is a norm everywhere locally is in fact a global norm from L. If L/K is cyclic, the original Hasse norm theorem states that the HNP holds. More generally, there is a cohomological description (due to Tate) of..

### Keith Butler - Applied machine learning for accelerated materials design and analysis

Join us for this research seminar, part of the SQUIDS (Statistics, quantification of uncertainty, inverse problems and data science) seminar series. Abstract: I will present work showing how the SciML group at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory is using machine learning to discover new materials and to accelerate data analysis at some of the UK..

### Sam Chow (Warwick) - Number Theory Seminar Series

Join us for this research seminar, part of the Number Theory Seminar Series.

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

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,..

### Matthieu Roche - Continuous Marangoni flows

Matthieu Roche (University of Paris Diderot) joins us for this seminar in the Physical Applied Mathematics Series. Title: Continuous Marangoni flows Abstract: The presence of a surface-concentration gradient of surface-active molecules along an interface between two liquids leads to the existence of an interfacial tension gradient and to th..

### Cathy Hsu (Heilbronn) - Number Theory Seminar Series

Join us for this research seminar, part of the Number Theory Seminar Series.

### Martin Benning - Deep learning as optimal control problems

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..
