Jonas Latz - Gradient flows and randomised thresholding: sparse inversion and classification

15:00 - 16:00 05 October 2022

Join us for this research seminar, part of the SQUIDS (Statistics, quantification of uncertainty, inverse problems and data science) seminar series. Abstract: Sparse inversion and classification problems are ubiquitous in modern data science and imaging. They are often formulated as non-smooth minimisation problems. In sparse inversion, we minimise,...

Logic Seminar - Nicola Gambino (Manchester)

15:15 - 16:15 05 October 2022

Title: Differential lambda-calculus and analytic functors Abstract: In a seminal 2003 paper, Ehrhard and Regnier introduced the differential lambda-calculus, an extension of the lambda-calculus with a differential operator. Among other things, the differential lambda-calculus leads to the possibility of approximating lambda-terms by a form of...

Suhasini Subba Rao - Graphical models for nonstationary time series (in person stat seminar)

14:00 - 15:00 05 October 2022

Suhasini Subba Rao, Professor of Statistics in the Department of Statistics at Texas A&M University, USA is our speaker for the Statistics seminar series. Title: Graphical models for nonstationary time series Abstract: We propose NonStGM, a general nonparametric graphical modeling framework for studying dynamic associations among the components...

[Internal UoM Event] Imaging Innovation Club Monthly Meeting

14:00 - 15:00 06 October 2022

This is a monthly meeting of the Imaging Innovation Club. Innovation Spotlight: Tony Richards - Advanced Heritage Imaging: Acquisition and Delivery Tony Richards, Senior Photographer, will talk through the recent implementation of advanced imaging techniques in aid of research at the John Rylands Research Institute and Library. He will discuss...

Manchester Algebra Seminar - Simon May

13:00 - 14:00 11 October 2022

Speaker: Simon May - Leeds Title: A non-commutative resolution for discriminants of complex reflection groups. Abstract: In this talk I will introduce the complex reflection groups $G(m,p,2)$ in the Shephard--Todd classification and show that it's hyperplane arrangement gives rise to a non-commutative resolution of the groups discriminant. In...

Manchester Number Theory Seminar - Martin Orr

15:00 - 16:00 11 October 2022

Speaker: Martin Orr (University of Manchester) Title: Galois bounds for unlikely intersections in a product of modular curves Abstract: The Zilber-Pink conjecture predicts that there should be only finitely many complex numbers t such that the three elliptic curves with j-invariants t, t+1, t-1 are all isogenous to each other. I will outline...

Advanced electrocatalysts for sustainable energy technologies

12:00 - 13:00 12 October 2022

Join us for this PSI seminar with guest speaker Dr. Laurie King. The annual production of hydrogen is over 70 million tons, with > 96% generated from fossil fuels (mostly by steam methane reformation of natural gas) releasing large quantities of CO2 as a by-product. Electrochemical and photoelectrochemical water splitting technologies offer an...

Reverse engineering the locomotion of an early tetrapod: Insights from an multi-disciplinary approach

14:00 - 15:00 12 October 2022

Dr. John Nyakatura from Humbolt Universitat zu Berlin will present this week’s Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences Seminar

Training Course on In situ experiments and Digital Volume Correlation

12 - 13 October 2022

Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) is a powerful experimental technique that computes 3D full-field displacement and strain maps from volumes images acquired during a deformation process of a material. DVC is the 3D extension of Digital Image Correlation (DIC) which was first described four decades ago. The emergence of DVC started early 2000s with...

Manchester Algebra Seminar - Shezad Mohammed

13:00 - 14:00 18 October 2022

Speaker: Shezad Mohammed - Manchester Title. TBC Abstract. TBC Place: Frank Adams (this term the seminar will not be streamed online) Tea and biscuits 12:45 in the foyer
