\n\n"Honeycomb Toroidal Graphs"\nProf Brian Alspach\n\nAbstract:\nThe honeycomb toroidal graphs are a family of graphs I have been looking at now and then for thirty years. I shall discuss an ongoing project dealing with hamiltonicity as well as some of their properties which have recently interested the computer architecture community.\n"Symmetric finite generalised polygons"\nA/Prof John Bamberg\n\nAbstract:\nFinite generalised polygons are the rank 2 irreducible spherical buildings, and include projective planes and the generalised quadrangles, hexagons, and octagons. Since the early work of Ostrom and Wagner on the automorphism groups of finite projective planes, there has been great interest in what the automorphism groups of generalised polygons can be, and in particular, whether it is possible to classify generalised polygons with a prescribed symmetry condition. For example, the finite Moufang polygons are the 'classical' examples by a theorem of Fong and Seitz (1973-1974) (and the infinite examples were classified in the work of Tits and Weiss (2002)). In this talk, we give an overview of some recent results on the study of symmetric finite generalised polygons, and in particular, on the work of the speaker with Cai Heng Li and Eric Swartz.\n"Edge-transitive graphs and maps"\nProf. Marston Conder\n\nAbstract:\nIn this talk I'll describe some recent discoveries about edge-transitive graphs and edge-transitive maps. These are objects that have received relatively little attention compared with their vertex-transitive and arc-transitive siblings.\n \nFirst I will explain a new approach (taken in joint work with Gabriel Verret) to finding all edge-transitive graphs of small order, using single and double actions of transitive permutation groups. This has resulted in the determination of all edge-transitive graphs of order up to 47 (the best possible just now, because the transitive groups of degree 48 are not known), and bipartite edge-transitive graphs of order up to 63. It also led us to the answer to a 1967 question by Folkman about the valency-to-order ratio for regular graphs that are edge- but not vertex-transitive.\n \nThen I'll describe some recent work on edge-transitive maps, helped along by workshops at Oaxaca and Banff in 2017. I'll explain how such maps fall into 14 natural classes (two of which are the classes of regular and chiral maps), and how graphs in each class may be constructed and analysed. This will include the answers to some 18-year-old questions by Širáň, \nTucker and Watkins about the existence of particular kinds of such maps on orientable and non-orientable surfaces.

SUMMARY:CARMA Seminar\n "The ideal curve flow of closed curves in the plane"\n Assoc. Prof. James McCoy
LOCATION:V107, Mathematics Building
DESCRIPTION:CARMA Seminar\nV107, Mathematics Building\n"The ideal curve flow of closed curves in the plane"\nAssoc. Prof. James McCoy\n\nAbstract:\nWe consider an L2-gradient flow of closed planar curves whose corresponding evolution equations is sixth order. Given a smooth initial curve we show that the solution to the flow exists for all time and, provided the length of the evolving curve remains bounded, smoothly converges to a multiply-covered circle. Moreover, we show that curves in any homotopy class with initially small L3‖ks‖2 enjoy a uniform length bound under the flow, yielding the convergence result in these cases. We also give some partial results for figure-8 type solutions to the flow. This is joint work with Ben Andrews, Glen Wheeler and Valentina-Mira Wheeler.

SUMMARY:CARMA Seminar\n "Particle-base methods and applications for multi-scale modelling"\n Dr Thien Tran-Duc
LOCATION:VG10, Mathematics Building
DESCRIPTION:CARMA Seminar\nVG10, Mathematics Building\n"Particle-base methods and applications for multi-scale modelling"\nDr Thien Tran-Duc\n\nAbstract:\nIn many engineering problems, physical phenomena could occur at different length and time scales and they are almost impossible to be described by a single mathematical model. More importantly, in such problems, small-scale physical phenomena could dramatically change macroscopic properties of the system. Over last few decades, particle-based methods have become a powerful tool that allows to model concerned physical phenomena at any length and time scales. In this talk, I’ll introduce some widely-used particle-based methods and share some of my experience in development of particle-based mathematical models for engineering problems.

SUMMARY:CARMA Seminar\n "CARMA Technical: What it means for you"\n Dr David Allingham
LOCATION:VG10, Mathematics Building
DESCRIPTION:CARMA Seminar\nVG10, Mathematics Building\n"CARMA Technical: What it means for you"\nDr David Allingham\n\nAbstract:\nOne of CARMA's goals is to foster an environment which provides guidance and support for\nwhat we might call "technical research issues". Broadly, this has meant that CARMA has used\nits resources to offer its members technical capabilities which were not readily available\nelsewhere, such as collaborative file-sharing, accessible "rich videoconferencing", web site\nhosting and web app development, high-performance computing, research software and\nvisualisation tools like 3-D rendering and 3-D printing. Over the past 10 years, some of\nthese resources have become available from other sources, including the University of\nNewcastle, and for those facilities, CARMA provides guidance about how to access and use\nthem, as well as for other university systems.\n\nThis talk will cover the technical services which CARMA can help you with.\n\nThis is a talk for CARMA members, and a light lunch will be served at the start. Please RSVP\nfor catering purposes to Juliane Turner( Juliane.Turner@newcastle.edu.au).\n\nRHD students are particularly encouraged to attend; please pass this on to your students\nif they are not already engaged with CARMA.

SUMMARY:CARMA Seminar\n "Einstein, Bach and the Taj Mahal: Symmetry in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities"\n Dr David Banney
LOCATION:VG10, Mathematics Building
DESCRIPTION:CARMA Seminar\nVG10, Mathematics Building\n"Einstein, Bach and the Taj Mahal: Symmetry in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities"\nDr David Banney\n\nAbstract:\nThis talk will be about the new course in mathematics at the University of Newcastle, MATH2005, Einstein, Bach and the Taj Mahal: Symmetry in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities. The course handbook description is:\n\nSymmetry is an organising principle that plays a role, often unrecognised, in a vast range of disciplines, from mathematics and the physical sciences to music, design and the arts. This course aims to introduce students from a variety of disciplines to symmetry and its consequences. While symmetry is associated with beauty, balance and harmony, it is also associated with conservation, stasis and boredom, and on its own symmetry is not enough to explain the richness, diversity and dynamism of the universe. In contrast, the concept of symmetry breaking is associated with transitions and evolution, and linked to self-organisation, emergent behaviour and the appearance of information.\n\nBeyond what is learnt about symmetry and symmetry breaking in this course, it is hoped that the concepts will challenge and change the thinking of students as they approach future subjects in their own disciplines.

SUMMARY:CARMA Seminar\n "Molecular Dynamics Study: Diffusion Properties of Ni-Zr Melts"\n Andreas Kromik
LOCATION:VG10, Mathematics Building
DESCRIPTION:CARMA Seminar\nVG10, Mathematics Building\n"Molecular Dynamics Study: Diffusion Properties of Ni-Zr Melts"\nAndreas Kromik\n\nAbstract:\nWe present an accurate database of diffusion properties of Ni-Zr melts generated within the framework of the molecular-dynamics method in conjunction with a semi-empirical many-body interatomic potential. The reliability of the model description of Ni-Zr melts is confirmed via comparison of our simulation results with the existing experimental data on diffusion properties on Ni-Zr melts. A statistical mechanical formalism is employed to understand the behaviour of the cross-correlation between the interdiffusion flux and the force caused by the difference in the average random accelerations of atoms of different species in the short time limit. Through further investigation of the diffusion dynamics, the most viable composition range for glass formers is identified.
