Noncommutative principal G-bundles
11:10 Fri 14 Sep, 2018 :: Barr Smith South Polygon Lecture theatre :: Keith Hannabuss :: University of Oxford

Noncommutative geometry provides greater flexibility for studying some problems. This seminar will survey some work on noncommutative principal G-bundles. These were classified for abelian groups some years ago, but nonabelian groups require a different approach, using tools developed for a totally different reason in the 1980s. This uncovers links with ergodic theory, quantum groups and the Yang-Baxter equation.
Mathematical modelling of the emergence and spread of antimalarial drug resistance
15:10 Fri 14 Sep, 2018 :: Napier 208 :: Dr Jennifer Flegg :: University of Melbourne

Malaria parasites have repeatedly evolved resistance to antimalarial drugs, thwarting efforts to eliminate the disease and contributing to an increase in mortality. In this talk, I will introduce several statistical and mathematical models for monitoring the emergence and spread of antimalarial drug resistance. For example, results will be presented from Bayesian geostatistical models that have quantified the space-time trends in drug resistance in Africa and Southeast Asia. I will discuss how the results of these models have been used to update public health policy.
