Research seminars

We maintain a varied and collaborative series of seminars across our research areas.

Antoine Gaillard - Flow and stability of a viscoelastic liquid curtain

14:00 - 15:00 13 November 2019

Antoine Gaillard (University of Manchester) joins us for the Physical Applied Mathematics Series, to be held in Frank Adams 1, Alan Turing Building. Abstract: Liquid curtains are sheets of liquid falling freely in ambient air at constant flow rate, generally from a slot. They are used in industry to deposit a uniform layer of liquid on solid..

Frank Dondelinger - A Bayesian Multi-Task Approach for Detecting Global Microbiome Associations

14:00 - 13 November 2019

Frank Dondelinger, lecturer in biostatistics at the Centre for Health Informatics, Computation and Statistics at Lancaster University, joins us for the Statistics seminar series. The human gut microbiome has been shown to be associated with a variety of human diseases, including cancer, metabolic conditions and inflammatory bowel disease. Cu..

Gareth Jones - Powers are easy to avoid

15:00 - 16:00 13 November 2019

Gareth Jones joins us for the logic seminar. Suppose that a set is definable in the expansion of the real field by restricted analytic functions, and is also definable in the expansion of the real field by the restricted exponential function together with all real power functions. Then the set is definable using just the restricted exponenti..

Theodore Voronov - On superanalog of the Pluecker embedding

15:00 - 16:00 14 November 2019

Theodore Voronov joins us for the Geometry, Topology and Mathematicals Physics Seminar. Abstract: The classical Pluecker map takes the Grassmann manifold to the projectivization of the space of multivectors. It gives an embedding of the Grassmann manifold as a projective algebraic variety and the image is described by quadric equations know..

Sean Edwards and Tom McSweeney - Informal Applied Mathematics Seminar

15:00 - 16:00 15 November 2019

The Informal Applied Mathematics seminar will continue with a double bill from Sean Edwards and Tom McSweeney. 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. Sean Edwards:..

Giulio Caravagna - Integrating machine learning and population genetics to better elucidate cancer evolutionary dynamics

14:00 - 14:50 18 November 2019

(Room 3.44b Simon Building) Join us for this seminar by Giulio Caravagna (Institute for Cancer Research) as part of the Mathematics in the Life Sciences Series. Abstract: Cancers originate from the expansion of cells that acquire advantageous somatic alterations, in a Darwinian evolutionary framework. We can use molecular cancer data to measu..

Louise Wright - Maths, modelling and measurement: data science at the National Physical Laboratory

12:00 - 13:00 19 November 2019

Join us for this research seminar, part of the SQUIDS (Statistics, quantification of uncertainty, inverse problems and data science) seminar series. Abstract: The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is the UK’s National Measurement Institute. We are responsible for realising and disseminating the seven SI base units, ensuring that measuremen..

Manchester Algebra Seminar -Compact Schur-Weyl Duality

14:00 - 15:00 19 November 2019

Speaker: Kieran Calvert (University of Manchester) Title: Compact Schur-Weyl Duality Abstract: Schur-Weyl duality is a fundamental idea that connects general linear groups and symmetric groups. This duality links the irreducible finite dimensional representations of both objects. Suzuki and Arakawa furthered this, introducing a functor be..

Nirvana Coppola (Bristol) - Wild Galois Representations

15:00 - 16:00 19 November 2019

Join us for this research seminar, part of the Number Theory Seminar Series. Abstract: An important invariant associated to an elliptic curve is its l-adic Galois representation. In this talk I will consider elliptic curves over a local field with potentially good reduction and describe how to determine the Galois representation under the as..

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..
