      How does an algebraic geometer studying secant varieties further the understanding of hypothesis tests in statistics? Why would a statistician working on factor analysis raise open problems about determinantal varieties? ...

      [OWS-25] Ballmann, Werner (Birkhäuser Basel, 1995)
      Singular spaces with upper curvature bounds and, in particular, spaces of nonpositive curvature, have been of interest in many fields, including geometric (and combinatorial) group theory, topology, dynamical systems and ...
    • Lectures on vanishing theorems 

      [OWS-20] Esnault, Hélène; Viehweg, Eckart (Birkhäuser Basel, 1992)
      Introduction M. Kodaira's vanishing theorem, saying that the inverse of an ample invert­ ible sheaf on a projective complex manifold X has no cohomology below the dimension of X and its generalization, due to Y. Akizuki ...
    • Legendrian Knots in Lens Spaces 

      [OWP-2011-01] Onaran, Sinem (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2011)
      In this note, we first classify all topological torus knots lying on the Heegaard torus in Lens spaces, and then we classify Legendrian representatives of torus knots. We show that all Legendrian torus knots in universally ...
    • Legendrian Lens Space Surgeries 

      [OWP-2016-10] Geiges, Hansjörg; Onaran, Sinem (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2016-06-17)
      We show that every tight contact structure on any of the lens spaces $L(ns^2 - s + 1,s^2)$ with $n\geq 2, s \geq 1$, can be obtained by a single Legendrian surgery along a suitable Legendrian realisation of the negative ...
    • Legendrian rational unknots in lens spaces 

      [OWP-2013-06] Geiges, Hansjörg; Onaran, Sinem (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2013-03-14)
      We classify Legendrian rational unknots with tight complements in the lens spaces $L(p,1)$ up to coarse equivalence. As an example of the general case, this classification is also worked out for $L(5, 2)$. The knots are ...
    • Limits of graph sequences 

      [SNAP-2019-010-EN] Klimošová, Tereza (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2019-09-04)
      Graphs are simple mathematical structures used to model a wide variety of real-life objects. With the rise of computers, the size of the graphs used for these models has grown enormously. The need to efficiently represent ...

      We build a new bridge between geometric group theory and commutative algebra by showing that the virtual cohomological dimension of a Coxeter group is essentially the regularity of the Stanley–Reisner ring of its nerve. ...
