    Limits to Growth Symposium: Beyond the Point of InflexionUNSW logo

    The School of Mathematics and Statistics at UNSW is hosting a full day symposium on Limits to Growth on 11 December 2013 at Parade Theatre, NIDA, Sydney.
    This will be followed by a Q&A session on the evening of the 12 December 2013 at UNSW.
    The event is part of this year's Mathematics of Planet Earth.MRE2013

    Date & Venue: Wednesday 11 December at 9:00 am; Parade Theatre, NIDA, Sydney.

    Date & Venue: Thursday 12 December, 18:00–19:30; Leighton Hall, UNSW, Sydney

    The focus of the event will be to address key questions:

    • Is economic growth forever sustainable?
    • What impact would a stagnant or declining population have on GDP?
    • Can mathematical models guide policy makers in answering these questions?
    • What is the strategic plan for planet Earth?

    A little over forty years ago an international team led by Donella Meadows, Dennis Meadows, Jørgen Randers, and William Behrens III carried out a major study of growth in five key areas; population, agricultural production, natural resources, industrial production and pollution. The team concluded that, if current trends continued, limits to growth would be realised within one hundred years with a sudden and uncontrollable decline in population and industrial capacity. Many of the projections on resources and pollution proved to be incorrect, with technological advances reversing trends. However the central (mathematical) result, that continued exponential growth is not sustainable indefinitely, is indisputable, and we have now entered an era, beyond the point of inflexion, where the rate of population growth is slowing.

    Keynote Speakers, Wednesday 11th December

    Several of the speakers will participate in a public panel discussion and Q&A event on Thursday 12th December in UNSW's Leighton Hall, facilitated by Ticky Fullerton (journalist for the ABC and presenter of The Business).

    CARMA OANT AGR seminar, UNiSA

    Speaker: A/Prof Regina Burachik (UniSA)
    Title: Interior Epigraph Directions Method for Nonsmooth and Nonconvex Optimization via Generalized Augmented Lagrangian Duality
    Time: 3:00 pm (AEDT), Tuesday 26 November 2013
    Venue: University of South Australia
    Also available on the Access Grid network (venue: UniSA).

    Abstract: We propose and study a new method, called the Interior Epigraph Directions (IED) method, for solving constrained nonsmooth and nonconvex optimization. The IED method considers the dual problem induced by a generalized augmented Lagrangian duality scheme, and obtains the primal solution by generating a sequence of iterates in the interior of the dual epigraph.

    • First, a deflected subgradient (DSG) direction is used to generate a linear approximation to the dual problem.
    • Second, this linear approximation is solved using a Newton-like step. This Newton-like step is inspired by the Nonsmooth Feasible Directions Algorithm (NFDA), recently proposed by Freire and co-workers for solving unconstrained, nonsmooth convex problems.

    We have modified the NFDA so that it takes advantage of the special structure of the epigraph of the dual function. We prove that all the accumulation points of the primal sequence generated by the IED method are solutions of the original problem. We carry out numerical experiments by using test problems from the literature. In particular, we study several instances of the Kissing Number Problem, previously solved by various approaches such as an augmented penalty method, the DSG method, as well as the popular differentiable solvers ALBOX (a predecessor of ALGENCAN), Ipopt and LANCELOT. Our experiments show that the quality of the solutions obtained by the IED method is comparable with (and sometimes favourable over) those obtained by the other solvers mentioned.

    Joint work with Wilhelm P. Freire and C. Yalcin Kaya.

    Dates: Tuesday–Saturday 28 January – 1 February 2014
    Venue: Science and Engineering Centre, Queensland University of Technology, Gardens Point Campus, Brisbane

    The MISG workshop aims to provide practical, working solutions to real-life problems using methods from the mathematical sciences. Since its inception the MISG has worked with a diverse range of more than 90 Australian and New Zealand business and industry partners, ranging from large multinational conglomerates to small-to-medium enterprises, on more than 160 different projects spanning a broad spectrum of industry sectors – including mining, car manufacturing, railways and freight, manufacturing, metal processing, food and beverages, oil and gas, utilities, biomedical science, and technology.

    The diversity of problems considered at the MISG is evident by considering even a small sample of past projects, namley:

    • Strategic planning and optimisation in an open-cut coal mine;
    • Pinpointing principal moments of inertia in a automotive engine assembly;
    • Modelling of open vat red wine fermenters;
    • Modelling the cooking process of a single grain of cereal;
    • Blending of lubricants in petroleum production;
    • Modelling the flow of pesticides through bunches of grapes;
    • Analysing the impact of weather on power supply disruptions in an electricity network.

    ANZIAM Early Career Workshop Feb 2014 AustMS logo

    after the ANZIAM 2014 conference, Rotorua, New Zealand.

    Dates & Venue: 7th February 2014; Millenium Hotel Resort, Rotorua, New Zealand.

    The ANZIAM Early Career Workshop is a great opportunity for early career researchers to meet together for networking, cameraderie, and a chance to learn from the experience of some great invited speakers. The meeting will be valuable for those just starting out their research careers as PhD students, through to researchers about five years post-PhD.

    Workshop Format and Focus

    Acting on feedback from previous workshops we will focus on advice sessions rather than research talks. We plan to have five or six sessions on a range of topics including: getting grants, writing CVs, academic career paths inside and outside Aus/NZ, and balancing research with other commitments. The sessions will be in a variety of formats including panel discussions, hands-on active workshops and presentations.

    Invited Speakers

    ANZAMP symposium
    Probability in statistical mechanics

    Date & Venue: 17 January 2014
    Venue: AMSI Access Grid Room, Building 161, Parkville Campus, The University of Melbourne

    Speakers

    • 10:00–11:00am — Rick Kenyon (Brown University)
      Limit shapes for random surfaces

    Abstract: I will discuss the analytic solution to the limit shape problem for random domino tilings and "lozenge" tilings, and in particular try to explain how these limiting surfaces develop facets.

    • 11:30am –12:30 pm — Wendelin Werner (ETH Zurich)
      Phase transitions and conformal invariance within planar fractal carpets

    Abstract: It is now known for a number of models of statistical physics in two dimensions (such as percolation or the Ising model) that at their critical point, they do behave in a conformally invariant way in the large-scale limit, and do give rise in this limit to random fractals that can be mathematically described via Schramm's Stochastic Loewner Evolutions.

    The goal of the present talk will be to discuss some aspects of what remains valid or should remain valid about such models and their conformal invariance, when one looks at them within a fractal-type planar domain. We shall in particular describe (and characterize) a continuous percolation interface within certain particular random fractal carpets. Part of this talk will be based on joint work with Jason Miller and Scott Sheffield.
