Congratulations to pure mathematician Professor John Cannon of the University of Sydney's school of Mathematics and Statistics, who has been elected as a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science.
SMRI congratulates the following researchers in the mathematical sciences on their successful applications. There are 14 successful applicants for the 2022IVP Round 1 and 3 successful applicants for the rolling UVP (Ukrainian Visitor Program).
The official International Congress of Mathematics 2022 was held virtually. In Sydney, SMRI recreated some of the usual spirit of the ICM. Our local event featured talks by the Australia-based invited speakers, presentations on the work of the Fields medallists, and interactive streaming of plenary and special session talks selected by the participants.
The Hendoff is a celebration of Anthony Henderson's manifold contributions to mathematics in Australia, through both his research and service to the community.
After over two years at the helm of SMRI and more than 20 at Sydney, let's send Anthony off in style!
Just one day after Pi Day (the International Day of Mathematics, 14 March) Sydney Ideas and SMRI joined forces to present Maths, AI and intuition, a public talk featuring SMRI Director Professor Geordie Williamson, with event MC Adam Spencer.
This hybrid research symposium on Nijenhuis Geometry and integrable systems took place over 3–18 Feb 2022 online and at Creswick, MATRIX.
It explored Nijenhuis geometry and uses it as a link connecting finite & infinite dimensional integrable systems.
SMRI congratulates mathematicians recognised with awards at AustMS 2021, the 65th Annual Meeting of the Australian Mathematical Society, which took place over 7-10 December 2021 at the University of Newcastle.
Awardees include SMRI Advisory Board member Professor Serena Dipierro.
2022 SMRI Executive Director Stephan Tillmann recognised with Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award
SMRI's future Executive Director Professor Stephan "Tillus" Tillmann has been recognised with the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
SMRI welcomes new Executive Director Professor Stephan "Tillus" Tillmann from the University of Sydney's School of Mathematics and Statistics, who will take up the position in January 2022.
In this Q&A with Professor Tillmann, he shares his vision for the Institute.
This hybrid symposium on singularities in geometric flows was held over 3–14 Jan 2022 at Cresswick, MATRIX and online.
It focused on exciting recent developments in the analysis of geometric flows via soliton and ancient solutions.
SMRI congratulates Professor Terence Tao, a member of our Advisory Board, who has been announced by President Joe Biden as a new member of the US President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.
The 2021 Integrable Systems Workshop took place over 2 – 3 December 2021, hosted by the University of Sydney's School of Mathematics and Statistics. This workshop brings together speakers on topics such as integrable systems, special functions, mathematical physics, discrete dynamical systems, and Painlevé equations.
