• The Becker-Gottlieb Transfer: a Geometric Description 

      [OWP-2019-13] Wang, Yi-Sheng (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2019-05-14)
      In this note, we examine geometric aspects of the Becker-Gottlieb transfer in terms of the Umkehr and index maps, and rework some classic index theorems, using the cohomological formulae of the Becker-Gottlieb transfer. ...
    • The Berry-Keating Operator on a Lattice 

      [OWP-2016-23] Bolte, Jens; Egger, Sebastian; Keppeler, Stefan (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2016-11-17)
      We construct and study a version of the Berry-Keating operator with a built-in truncation of the phase space, which we choose to be a two-dimensional torus. The operator is a Weyl quantisation of the classical Hamiltonian ...
    • Billiards and flat surfaces 

      [SNAP-2015-001-EN] Davis, Diana (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2015)
      [also available in German] Billiards, the study of a ball bouncing around on a table, is a rich area of current mathematical research. We discuss questions and results on billiards, and on the related topic of flat surfaces.

      We initiate the study of matrix convexity for operator spaces. We define the notion of compact rectangular matrix convex set, and prove the natural analogs of the Krein-Milman and the bipolar theorems in this context. We ...
    • Braid equivalences and the L-moves 

      [OWP-2011-20] Lambropoulou, Sofia (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2011-05-19)
      In this survey paper we present the L-moves between braids and how they can adapt and serve for establishing and proving braid equivalence theorems for various diagrammatic settings, such as for classical knots, for knots ...
    • Bredon Cohomology and Robot Motion Planning 

      [OWP-2017-34] Farber, Michael; Grant, Mark; Lupton, Gregory; Oprea, John (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2017-11-29)
      In this paper we study the topological invariant ${\sf {TC}}(X)$ reflecting the complexity of algorithms for autonomous robot motion. Here, $X$ stands for the configuration space of a system and ${\sf {TC}}(X)$ is, roughly, ...
    • Calculating conjugacy classes in Sylow p-subgroups of finite Chevalley groups of rank six and seven 

      [OWP-2013-10] Goodwin, Simon M.; Mosch, Peter; Röhrle, Gerhard (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2013-04-10)
      Let $G(q)$ be a finite Chevalley group, where $q$ is a power of a good prime $p$, and let $U(q)$ be a Sylow $p$-subgroup of $G(q)$. Then a generalized version of a conjecture of Higman asserts that the number $k(U(q))$ of ...
    • Cataland: Why the Fuß? 

      [OWP-2019-01] Stump, Christian; Thomas, Hugh; Williams, Nathan (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2019-01-21)
      The three main objects in noncrossing Catalan combinatorics associated to a finite Coxeter system are noncrossing partitions, clusters, and sortable elements. The first two of these have known Fuß-Catalan generalizations. ...
    • Categoric Aspects of Authentication 

      [OWP-2012-05] Schillewaert, Jeroen; Thas, Koen (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2012-04-24)
    • Categorical Linearly Ordered Structures 

      [OWP-2018-08] Downey, Rod; Melnikov, Alexander; Ng, Keng Meng (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-04-26)
      We prove that for every computable limit ordinal $\alpha$ there exists a computable linear ordering $\mathcal{A}$ which is $\Delta^0_\alpha$-categorical and $\alpha$ is smallest such, but nonetheless for every isomorphic ...
    • A categorical model for the virtual braid group 

      [OWP-2011-19] Kauffman, Louis H.; Lambropoulou, Sofia (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2011-05-18)
    • Central Limit Theorems for the Radial Spanning Tree 

      [OWP-2014-18] Schulte, Matthias; Thäle, Christoph (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2014)
      Consider a homogeneous Poisson point process in a compact convex set in d-dimensional Euclidean space which has interior points and contains the origin. The radial spanning tree is constructed by connecting each point of ...
    • Chaos and chaotic fluid mixing 

      [SNAP-2015-005-EN] Solomon, Tom (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2015)
      Very simple mathematical equations can give rise to surprisingly complicated, chaotic dynamics, with behavior that is sensitive to small deviations in the initial conditions. We illustrate this with a single recurrence ...
    • A Characterization of Semisimple Plane Polynomial Automorphisms 

      [OWP-2008-08] Maubach, Stefan; Furter, Jean-Philippe (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2008-03-12)
      It is well-known that an element of the linear group $GL_n(\mathbb{C})$ is semisimple if and only if its conjugacy class is Zariski closed. The aim of this paper is to show that the same result holds for the group of complex ...
    • Chirality of Real Non-Singular Cubic Fourfolds and Their Pure Deformation Classification 

      [OWP-2019-14] Finashin, Sergey; Kharlamov, Viatcheslav (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2019-05-15)
      In our previous works we have classified real non-singular cubic hypersurfaces in the 5-dimensional projective space up to equivalence that includes both real projective transformations and continuous variations of ...

      [OWP-2011-13] Salepci, Nermin (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2011)
      We show that totally real elliptic Lefschetz brations that admit a real section are classified by their "real loci" which is nothing but an $S^1$-valued Morse function on the real part of the total space. We assign to ...
