Upcoming CARMA Events

  • CARMA SEMINAR
  • Speaker: Dr David Allingham, CARMA, The University of Newcastle
  • Title: CARMA Technical: What it means for you
  • Location: VG10, Mathematics Building (Callaghan), The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 12:00 pm, Tue, 20th Aug 2019
  • Abstract:
    One of CARMA's goals is to foster an environment which provides guidance and support for what we might call "technical research issues". Broadly, this has meant that CARMA has used its resources to offer its members technical capabilities which were not readily available elsewhere, such as collaborative file-sharing, accessible "rich videoconferencing", web site hosting and web app development, high-performance computing, research software and visualisation tools like 3-D rendering and 3-D printing. Over the past 10 years, some of these resources have become available from other sources, including the University of Newcastle, and for those facilities, CARMA provides guidance about how to access and use them, as well as for other university systems.

    This talk will cover the technical services which CARMA can help you with.

    This is a talk for CARMA members, and a light lunch will be served at the start. Please RSVP for catering purposes to Juliane Turner( Juliane.Turner@newcastle.edu.au).

    RHD students are particularly encouraged to attend; please pass this on to your students if they are not already engaged with CARMA.

  • CARMA SEMINAR
  • Speaker: Dr David Banney, CARMA, The University of Newcastle
  • Title: Einstein, Bach and the Taj Mahal: Symmetry in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities
  • Location: VG10, Mathematics Building (Callaghan), The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 22nd Aug 2019
  • Abstract:
    This 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:

    Symmetry 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.

    Beyond 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.

  • CARMA SEMINAR
  • Speaker: Andreas Kromik, School of Engineering, The University of Newcastle
  • Title: Molecular Dynamics Study: Diffusion Properties of Ni-Zr Melts
  • Location: VG10, Mathematics Building (Callaghan), The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 29th Aug 2019
  • Abstract:
    We 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.

  • CARMA SEMINAR
  • Speaker: Professor Bryan Manly, New Zealand Department of Conservation
  • Title: Analyses of Marine Mammals, Birds and Fish
  • Location: SR202, SR Building (Callaghan), The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Wed, 9th Oct 2019
  • Abstract:
    Bryan will be talking about his work with Western EcoSystems Technology Inc. in the USA where his work involves projects assessing endangered fish in rivers and fisheries bycatch of marine mammals and birds using change point methods. Sampling designs and analysis for the Alaska Marine Mammal Observer Program will be discussed as will various analyses for the San Luis and Delta-Mendota Water Association and the Metropolitan Water Association of Southern California. Research for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers involves predicting fish survival rates in dams in the Columbia River Basin using the virtual/paired release method.
