Probabilistic and extremal combinatorics are two closely related branches of modern combinatorial theory. Extremal combinatorics examines the optimal (max or min) value of functions on discrete structures. Probabilistic combinatorics studies randomly selected discrete structures, or their elements, with varying kinds of probability distribution. Methods from this area have achieved strong results in extremal combinatorics. In […]
The world is changing around us. Optimisation– which used to be hidden behind closed doors is now at our fingertips shaping the way in which we live our lives, move our goods, and make our decisions. From healthcare, sports, transport and manufacturing through to the deployment of next generation fibre networks, optimisation is core to working in the 21st […]
Winter School 2016 will take place from 4-15 July 2016 and the theme for this year is on Biological and Environmental Modelling. In the twenty-first century, modelling is a crucial research tool for studying complex phenomena and processes. Our impressive line up of speakers will build your knowledge of models, algorithms, and theoretical analysis tools, and […]

Public Lecture: Is science any use for saving species and habitat? Professor Hugh Possingham directs a threatened species recovery hub that is doing research for saving species. Hugh asks the questions, do we really need more science? Why don’t we just take the knowledge we have and save the species? In this Public Lecture, Professor Possingham will discuss the […]
The aim of this focussed conference is to bring together Australians and distinguished overseas researchers having interests in Ergodic Theory and its applications to share ideas and to discuss current work. This conference will cover far ranging areas of Ergodic Theory and provide opportunities for both established and emerging Australian researchers to interact with top […]
The workshop is designed to bring together researchers working in various areas of modern mathematical optimisation, to prompt an exchange of ideas between Australian and overseas researchers. The workshop is focussed on the modern aspects of optimisation that involve deep interplay between computational problems and pure mathematical questions. Keynotes Prof. Heinz Bauschke University of British Columbia Prof. […]
The `Winter of Disconnectedness’ program will run from July – August, 2016. The subject will be totally disconnected, locally compact groups. Rapid progress is being made with the understanding of general groups of this type, which includes important classes such as p-adic Lie groups, automorphism groups of locally finite graphs, and profinite groups. Mathematicians at […]
K-theory has established itself as a central topic within mathematics – it has played a major role in solving problems of great interest to mathematicians in variety of other areas. Many Fields Medalists of the preceding 50 years have contributed to or used K-theory in their work: Atiyah, Connes, Grothendieck, Milnor, Quillen, Serre and Veovodesky. […]
The event Geometry at the ANU will feature a graduate student winter school from August 15-August 19 with four eminent international lecturers followed by a large conference from August 22 – August 26 with around 80 world experts in algebraic geometry and related fields.
‘Animal Vegetal Mineral’ will be an interdisciplinary discussion meeting on structure and pattern formation in biological and synthetic systems. The particular focus will be on geometrically complex nanostructures, in particular those based on triply-periodic minimal surface geometries. While these geometries are found ubiquitously both in biological systems and synthetic self-assembly, it is becoming increasingly clear […]
AMSI is a collaborative venture of the nation’s universities, professional societies and government agencies, that seeks to integrate research, education and industry involvement to deliver mathematical and statistical capability and provide a strong base for national innovation.
