      [OWR-2015-16] (2015) - (22 Mar - 28 Mar 2015)
      Connections between subfactor theory and conformal field theory have been expected since the early days of the former in 1980’s, and recently we see more and more evidence for deeper relations. It was our aim to attract ...

    • Supertropical Quadratic Forms I 

      [OWP-2013-27] Knebusch, Manfred; Rowen, Louis; Izhakian, Zur (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2013)
      We initiate the theory of a quadratic form q over a semiring $R$. As customary, one can write $q(x+y)=q(x)+q(y)+b(x,y)$, where b is a companion bilinear form. But in contrast to the ring-theoretic case, the companion ...
    • Supertropical semirings and supervaluations 

      [OWP-2010-05] Izhakian, Zur; Knebusch, Manfred; Rowen, Louis (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2010)
      We interpret a valuation $\upsilon$ on a ring $R$ as a map $\upsilon:R \rightarrow M$ into a so called bipotent semiring $M$ (the usual max-plus setting), and then define a supervaluation $\varphi$ as a suitable map into ...

    • Swarming robots 

      [SNAP-2016-001-EN] Egerstedt, Magnus (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2016)
      When lots of robots come together to form shapes, spread in an area, or move in one direction, their motion has to be planned carefully. We discuss how mathematicians devise strategies to help swarms of robots behave like ...
    • The Sylow Structure of Scalar Automorphism Groups
