      [OWR-2013-21] (2013) - (28 Apr - 04 May 2013)
      Over the last 30 years global surface theory has become pivotal in the understanding of low dimensional global phenomena. At the same time surface geometry became a platform on which seemingly different areas of mathematics ...
    • Prony’s method: an old trick for new problems 

      [SNAP-2018-004-EN] Sauer, Tomas (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-03-06)
      In 1795, French mathematician Gaspard de Prony invented an ingenious trick to solve a recovery problem, aiming at reconstructing functions from their values at given points, which arose from a specific application in ...

      [OWR-2017-37] (2017) - (13 Aug - 19 Aug 2017)
      Proof complexity is a multi-disciplinary intellectual endeavor that addresses questions of the general form “how difficult is it to prove certain mathematical facts?” The current workshop focused on recent advances in our ...
    • Proof mining in metric fixed point theory and ergodic theory 

      [OWP-2009-05] Leuştean, Laurenţiu (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009)
      In this survey we present some recent applications of proof mining to the fixed point theory of (asymptotically) nonexpansive mappings and to the metastability (in the sense of Terence Tao) of ergodic averages in uniformly ...
    • The Pseudo-Hyperresolution and Applications 

      [OWP-2017-17] Nguyen, The Cuong (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2017-07-04)
      Resolving objects in an abelian category by injective (projective) resolutions is a fundamental problem in mathematics, and this article aims at introducing a particular solution called “Pseudo-hyperresolutions”. This ...
    • A Pseudo-Polynomial Algorithm for Mean Payoff Stochastic Games with Perfect Information and Few Random Positions 

      [OWP-2015-20] Boros, Endre; Elbassioni, Khaled; Gurvich, Vladimir; Makino, Kazuhisa (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2015)
      We consider two-person zero-sum stochastic mean payoff games with perfect information, or BWR-games, given by a digraph $G = (V,E)$, with local rewards $r : E \to \mathbb{Z}$, and three types of positions: black $V_B$, ...

    • A Quantitative Analysis of the “Lion-Man” Game 

      [OWP-2019-18] Kohlenbach, Ulrich; López-Acedo, Genaro; Nicolae, Adriana (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2019-07-08)
      In this paper we analyze, based on an interplay between ideas and techniques from logic and geometric analysis, a pursuit-evasion game. More precisely, we focus on a discrete lion and man game with an $\varepsilon$-capture ...
    • Quantities that frequency-dependent selection maximizes 

      [OWP-2008-18] Matessi, Carlo; Schneider, Kristian (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2008-03-18)
      We consider a model of frequency-dependent selection, to which we refer as the Wildcard Model, that accommodates as particular cases a number of diverse models of biologically specific situations. Two very different ...
    • Quantum diffusion 

      [SNAP-2015-014-EN] Knowles, Antti (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2015)
      If you place a drop of ink into a glass of water, the ink will slowly dissipate into the surrounding water until it is perfectly mixed. If you record your experiment with a camera and play the film backwards, you will see ...
    • Quantum symmetry 

      [SNAP-2020-005-EN] Weber, Moritz (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2020-06-04)
      In mathematics, symmetry is usually captured using the formalism of groups. However, the developments of the past few decades revealed the need to go beyond groups: to “quantum groups”. We explain the passage from ...
