Virtual Seminar Series - One World Numerical Analysis Series

This is the webpage for the One World Numerical Analysis Series. The seminars every two weeks, on a Monday (14:00-15:00 British Summer Time).

The first seminar will be held on 20th July followed by a break until September at which point the series will resume.

Organisers are Lehel Banjai (Heriot-Watt Univerity), Emmanuil Georgoulis (University of Leicester/NTU Athens), Charalambos Makridakis (IACM/University of Sussex/Crete) and Daniel Peterseim (University of Augsburg).

To sign up for this seminar series, please complete this form.

Zoom links will be sent at 11:00 BST on the day of each seminar


Recordings of talks given as part of this series can be found here.


Future Seminars


02 November

Houman Owhadi (Caltech)

Title: On learning adapted kernels for numerical approximation

Abstract: Most numerical approximation methods can be interpreted as kernel interpolation methods. The particular choice of the kernel can have a large impact on the accuracy/complexity of the method and this talk is an invitation to explore the problem of selecting/learning the underlying kernel.

16 November

Desmond Higham (University of Edinburgh)
