• The codimension 

      [SNAP-2018-009-EN] Lerario, Antonio (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-06-19)
      In this snapshot we discuss the notion of codimension, which is, in a sense, “dual” to the notion of dimension and is useful when studying the relative position of one object insider another one.
    • The Colored Jones Polynomial and Kontsevich-Zagier Series for Double Twist Knots 

      [OWP-2017-29] Lovejoy, Jeremy; Osburn, Robert (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2017-10-20)
      Using a result of Takata, we prove a formula for the colored Jones polynomial of the double twist knots $K_{(-m,-p)}$ and $K_{(-m,p)}$ where $m$ and $p$ are positive integers. In the $(-m,-p)$ case, this leads to new ...

    • Computational algebraic number theory 

      Pohst, Michael (Birkhäuser Basel, 1993)
      Computational algebraic number theory has been attracting broad interest in the last few years due to its potential applications in coding theory and cryptography. For this reason, the Deutsche Mathematiker Vereinigung ...
    • Computational Optimal Transport 

      [SNAP-2017-008-EN] Solomon, Justin (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2017-12-21)
      Optimal transport is the mathematical discipline of matching supply to demand while minimizing shipping costs. This matching problem becomes extremely challenging as the quantity of supply and demand points increases; ...
    • Computing Congruence Quotients of Zariski Dense Subgroups 

      [OWP-2018-22] Detinko, Alla; Flannery, Dane; Hulpke, Alexander (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-10-26)
      We obtain a computational realization of the strong approximation theorem. That is, we develop algorithms to compute all congruence quotients modulo rational primes of a finitely generated Zariski dense group $H \leq ...
    • Computing the long term evolution of the solar system with geometric numerical integrators 

      [SNAP-2017-009-EN] Fiorelli Vilmart, Shaula; Vilmart, Gilles (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2017-12-27)
      Simulating the dynamics of the Sun–Earth–Moon system with a standard algorithm yields a dramatically wrong solution, predicting that the Moon is ejected from its orbit. In contrast, a well chosen algorithm with the ...
    • Computing with symmetries 

      [SNAP-2018-003-EN] Roney-Dougal, Colva M. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-03-06)
      Group theory is the study of symmetry, and has many applications both within and outside mathematics. In this snapshot, we give a brief introduction to symmetries, and how to compute with them.
    • Conformal Differential Geometry 

      [OWS-40] Baum, Helga; Juhl, Andreas (Birkhäuser Basel, 2010)
      Conformal invariants (conformally invariant tensors, conformally covariant differential operators, conformal holonomy groups etc.) are of central significance in differential geometry and physics. Well-known examples of ...
    • A construction of hyperbolic Coxeter groups 

      [OWP-2010-04] Osajda, Damian (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2010)
      We give a simple construction of Gromov hyperbolic Coxeter groups of arbitrarily large virtual cohomological dimension. Our construction provides new examples of such groups. Using this one can construct e.g. new groups ...

      [OWP-2009-18] Dutour Sikirić, Mathieu; Schürmann, Achill; Vallentin, Frank (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-12)
      The contact polytope of a lattice is the convex hull of its shortest vectors. In this paper we classify the facets of the contact polytope of the Leech lattice up to symmetry. There are 1, 197, 362, 269, 604, 214, 277, 200 ...
