PhD Completion Seminar

11:00 am

V206, Mathematics Building


Mr Matthew Tam

(School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, The University of Newcastle)

Iterative Projection and Reflection Methods

This completion talk is in two parts. In the first part, I will present a characterisation of the cyclic Douglas-Rachford method's behaviour, generalising a result which was presented in my confirmation seminar. In the second part, I will explore non-convex regularity notions in an application arising in biochemistry.

Moving from cogrowth rates to Følner sets via a random walk

Amenability is of interest for many reasons, not least of which is its paradoxical decomposition into so many various characterisations, each equal to the whole. Two of these are the characterisation in terms of the cogrowth rate, and the existence of a Følner sequence. In exploring a known method of computing the cogrowth rate using a random walk, and by analyzing which groups seem to be pathological for this algorithm, we discover new connections between these properties.
