*

The purpose of the talk is to give an elementary introduction to the

theory of residue of logarithmic and multi-logarithmic differential

forms, and to describe some of the less
more...

**Gradient and oscillation estimates and their applications**

*Ben Andrews
(Ben.Andrews@anu.edu.au)
*

I will survey some recent developments where the use of `oscillation estimates', bounding differences in values of a quantity at different points in terms of their separation, can give sharp new more...

The aim of this talk is to investigate the existence of semifields of order q^8,admitting automorphism groups of order 8

**Modeling, analysis and simulation for degenerate dipolar quantum gas**

*Weizhu Bao
(matbaowz@nus.edu.sg)
*

In this talk, I will present our recent work on mathematical models, asymptotic analysis and numerical simulation for degenerate dipolar

quantum gas. As preparatory steps, I begin with the

**Recent Developments on Ricci Solitons**

*Huai-Dong CAO
(huc2@lehigh.edu)
*

The notion of Ricci soliton was introduced by Richard Hamilton in mid 1980s. Ricci solitons are natural extension of Einstein metrics. They often arise as singularity models, and play a significant more...

**Striking formulae of Ramanujan-like for $\zeta(2)$ and v$\zeta(3)$**

*WENCHANG CHU
(chu.wenchang@unisalento.it)
*

Ramanujan's infinite series involving has inspired many contributions in the twnentieth century, mainly by Borweins and Chudnovskys. Recently, Guillera found seven remarkable infinte series more...

**Complexity of Counting Problems**

*Jin-Yi Cai
(jyc@cs.wisc.edu)
*

We report some recent progress on the computational complexity

of counting problems. For a variety of problems we can now

establish sharp classification theorems, which classify

**Dynamic Programming or Direct Comparison?**

*Xiren Cao
(eecao@ust.hk)
*

The standard approach to control and optimization of stochastic systems is based on dynamic programming. Recently, an alternative approach to stochastic learning and optimization has been developed. more...
