Martin Singull's lecture was planned for later this autumn, but when the intended speaker became ill, he chose to host the seminar a little earlier and with short notice.

The purpose of the digital seminar series in mathematics is to promote research activities and create new collaborations between the various universities in Africa. The lecturers usually come from Africa, or have a strong relationship with African mathematics. However, the organizing team has chosen to include prominent speakers from time to time for networking and research exchange with the rest of the world.

Singull's lecture is entitled "Supervised learning for repeated measurements using the Growth Curve models".

– Several of the PhD students I supervise, within the research collaboration with Africa and Asia, work with these models. During the lecture, I will try to explain what their work is about by using examples, says Singull.

The seminar is broadcasted live on Youtube and can be seen from 14.00 CET on the 26 of August. For more information and a link to the seminar, visit Africa Mathematics Seminar.

Update 27/8: The seminar is now available in the video below.
