In recognition of awards and prizes to staff and associates of the Sydney Mathematical Research Institute.
To celebrate the International Day of Mathematics 2023 (aka “Pi Day”) on 14 March, SMRI organised three public events for all ages and levels of mathematics.
UTS and UNSW also hosted events to celebrate Pi Day.
Over the second half of 2022, Francisco Crespo worked on a project related to the full n-body problem, which refers to the motion of rigid bodies in space. Find out why celestial mechanics has fascinated mathematicians throughout history in this video interview.
Postdoctoral positions at SMRI and USyd School of Maths and Stats: applications have now closed.
In July 2022, international visitors from Toronto (Nancy Scherich, Dror Bar-Natan and Jessica Liu), visited SMRI to work on a topological algebra project with University of Sydney mathematician Zsuzsanna Dancso.
Watch our group interview, followed by individual interviews with Dr Scherich and Professor Bar-Natan.
SMRI’s first visitor Professor Matthias Lesch and his Australian collaborators have recently published a paper on spectral flow in the Journal of Topology and Analysis.
Based at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Bonn, Professor Lesch spent three months at SMRI and the Uni of Wollongong in mid-2019.
Esteemed algebraic number theorist Professor Frank Calegari gave a public talk titled ‘The secrets of Pi (and other transcendental numbers)’ on 23 November, the first event on his 2022 Mahler Lecture Tour.
SMRI is delighted to announce that Director Professor Geordie Williamson has won the prize for Excellence in Mathematics, Earth Sciences, Chemistry or Physics in the 2022 NSW Premier’s Prizes for Science & Engineering.
SMRI congratulates 23 researchers in the mathematical sciences who were successful in the International Visitor Program 2022 Round 2.
