Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics Seminar 2014/15
The seminar usually takes place on Thursdays from 3.45pm to 4.45pm in room ADB1020
of the School of Mathematics, Statistcs and Applied Mathematics, which is located
in
Áras de Brún (Block C).
The talks are directed towards a general mathematical audience and everyone interested is very welcome to attend.
Tea/coffee/biscuits/cake will be available in the ground floor Research Lab (ADBG022) 30 minutes before the seminar starts.
Abstracts when available can be obtained by rolling the mouse over a title. Clicking a title sometimes provides a longer version of the talk in PDF format.

Robustness of Design: A Survey
When an experiment is conducted for purposes which include fitting a particular model to the data, then the 'optimal' experimental design is highly dependent upon the model assumptions  linearity of the response function, independence and homoscedasticity of the errors, etc. When these assumptions are violated the design can be far from optimal, and so a more robust approach is called for. We should seek a design which behaves reasonably well over a large class of plausible models.
I will review the progress which has been made on such problems, in a variety of experimental and modelling scenarios  prediction, extrapolation, discrimination, survey sampling, doseresponse, etc.

The Artinianess of graded generalized local cohomology modules
This talk wants to present the Artinianess of some classes of graded generalized local cohomology modules. Generalized local cohomology was introduced by J. Herzog in 1974. It is a generalization of Grothendieck's local cohomology theory.
In particular, we consider it for a given Noetherian commutative local ring R with the unit element 1 different from 0, for each pair of modules M, N over R. A recent result of the speaker is that under certain additional assumptions, this cohomology vanishes in high enough dimensions.
This allows to obtain partial information about the projective dimension of M and the Krull dimension of N.
