We maintain a varied and collaborative series of seminars across our research areas.
Thomas Jordan (Bristol) will be speaking at this research seminar, part of the Dynamical Systems and Analysis seminar series. Abstract: Joint work with Ariel Rapaport. Self-similar sets satisfying the open set condition are now extremely well understood. In particular the dimension of any ergodic measure projected from the shift space can b..
Join us for this research seminar, part of the Number Theory Seminar Series. Abstract : The study of thin groups has become a hot topic at the centre of a great deal of modern research. Recently the measure theory on infinite hyperbolic groups has opened these groups up to the techniques of homogeneous dynamics. In this talk I will give a sk..
The speaker on October 15 is: Hendrik Suess (Manchester) Title: Normalised volumes of singularities Abstract: The notion of the normalised volume of a singularity has been introduced relatively recently, but plays a crucial role in the context of Einstein metrics and K-stability. After introducing this invariant my plan is to specialise qui..
Sam Sanders joins us for the Logic Seminar. Plato is well-known in mathematics for the eponymous foundational philosophy ‘Platonism' based on ideal objects. Plato’s 'allegory of the cave' provides a powerful visual illustration of the idea that we only have access to shadows or reflections of these ideal objects. An inquisitive mind might..
Abstract: Using Bernstein-Kushnirenko theorem one can describe the cohomology ring of a smooth projective toric variety via volume polynomial on the space of polytopes. One can extend this description to the case of equivariant compactifications of a torus principal bundle. In my talk, I will formulate a version of Bernstein-Kushnirenko theor..
We will be resuming the Informal Applied Mathematics seminars for the new academic year with the customary 5-minute talks. Students will be presenting their PhDs (so far) in no more than 5 minutes. Talks will take place in Frank Adams 2 (next to the Alan Turing Building's kitchen), with complimentary hot drinks and biscuits from 3.45pm on the..
Istvan Kolossvary (St Andrews) will be speaking at this research seminar, part of the Dynamical Systems and Analysis seminar series.
(Room 3.62 Simon Building) Join us for this seminar by Kat Coyte (Manchester) 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 email@example.com
Abdul-Lateef Haji-Ali - Sub-sampling and other considerations for efficient risk estimation in large portfolios
Join us for this research seminar, part of the SQUIDS (Statistics, quantification of uncertainty, inverse problems and data science) seminar series. Abstract: Computing risk measures of a financial portfolio comprising thousands of options is a challenging problem because (a) it involves a nested expectation requiring multiple evaluation of t..
