    • What does ">" really mean? 

      [SNAP-2014-004-EN] Reznick, Bruce (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2014)
      This Snapshot is about the generalization of ">" from ordinary numbers to so-called fields. At the end, I will touch on some ideas in recent research.
    • Wie steuert man einen Kran? 

      [SNAP-2016-007-DE] Altmann, Robert; Heiland, Jan (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2016)
      Die Steuerung einer Last an einem Kran ist ein technisch und mathematisch schwieriges Problem, da die Bewegung der Last nur indirekt beeinflusst werden kann. Anhand eines Masse-Feder-Systems illustrieren wir diese ...
    • The Willmore Conjecture 

      [SNAP-2016-011-EN] Nowaczyk, Nikolai (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2016)
      The Willmore problem studies which torus has the least amount of bending energy. We explain how to think of a torus as a donut-shaped surface and how the intuitive notion of bending has been studied by mathematics over time.
    • Winkeltreue zahlt sich aus 

      [SNAP-2017-001-DE] Günther, Felix (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2017-08-23)
      Nicht nur Seefahrerinnen, auch Computergrafikerinnen und Physikerinnen wissen Winkeltreue zu schätzen. Doch beschränkte Rechenkapazitäten und Vereinfachungen in theoretischen Modellen erfordern es, winkeltreue Abbildungen ...
    • Yet another algorithm for the symmetric eigenvalue problem 

      [OWP-2016-02] Aurentz, Jared L.; Mach, Thomas; Vandebril, Raf; Watkins, David S. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2016-05-10)
      In this paper we present a new algorithm for solving the symmetric matrix eigenvalue problem that works by first using a Cayley transformation to convert the symmetric matrix into a unitary one and then uses Gragg’s ...
    • Z2-Thurston Norm and Complexity of 3-Manifolds, II 

      [OWP-2017-36] Jaco, William; Rubinstein, J. Hyam; Spreer, Jonathan; Tillmann, Stephan (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2017-12-20)
      In this sequel to earlier papers by three of the authors, we obtain a new bound on the complexity of a closed 3-manifold, as well as a characterisation of manifolds realising our complexity bounds. As an application, we ...
    • Zero-dimensional symmetry 

      [SNAP-2015-003-EN] Willis, George (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2015)
      This snapshot is about zero-dimensional symmetry. Thanks to recent discoveries we now understand such symmetry better than previously imagined possible. While still far from complete, a picture of zero-dimensional symmetry ...
    • Zeta functions of 3-dimensional p-adic Lie algebras 

      [OWP-2007-10] Klopsch, Benjamin; Voll, Christopher (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2007-03-26)
      We give an explicit formula for the subalgebra zeta function of a general 3-dimensional Lie algebra over the $p$-adic integers $\mathbb{Z}_p$. To this end, we associate to such a Lie algebra a ternary quadratic form over ...
