• Darcy's law and groundwater flow modelling 

      [SNAP-2015-007-EN] Schweizer, Ben (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2015)
      Formulations of natural phenomena are derived, sometimes, from experimentation and observation. Mathematical methods can be applied to expand on these formulations, and develop them into better models. In the year 1856, ...
    • Data assimilation: mathematics for merging models and data 

      [SNAP-2018-011-EN] Morzfeld, Matthias; Reich, Sebastian (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-07-10)
      When you describe a physical process, for example, the weather on Earth, or an engineered system, such as a self-driving car, you typically have two sources of information. The first is a mathematical model, and the ...

      We prove that the space of pairs $(X,l)$ formed by a real non-singular cubic hypersurface $X\subset P^4$ with a real line $l\subset X$ has 18 connected components and give for them several quite explicit interpretations. ...
    • A Deformed Quon Algebra 

      [OWP-2018-11] Randriamaro, Hery (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-06-25)
      The quon algebra is an approach to particle statistics in order to provide a theory in which the Pauli exclusion principle and Bose statistics are violated by a small amount. The quons are particles whose annihilation and ...
    • Demailly’s Notion of Algebraic Hyperbolicity: Geometricity, Boundedness, Moduli of Maps

      Demailly's conjecture, which is a consequence of the Green-Griffiths-Lang conjecture on varieties of general type, states that an algebraically hyperbolic complex projective variety is Kobayashi hyperbolic. Our aim is to ...
    • Detecting Ineffective Features for Pattern Recognition 

      [OWP-2017-26] Györfi, László; Walk, Harro (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2017-10-17)
      For a binary classification problem, the hypothesis testing is studied, that a component of the observation vector is not effective, i.e., that component carries no information for the classification. We introduce nearest ...

    • Dirichlet Series 

      [SNAP-2014-001-EN] McCarthy, John E. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2014)
      Mathematicians are very interested in prime numbers. In this snapshot, we will discuss some problems concerning the distribution of primes and introduce some special infinite series in order to study them.
    • Discrete Differential Geometry 

      [OWS-38] Bobenko, Alexander I.; Schröder, Peter; Sullivan, John M.; Ziegler, Günter M. (Birkhäuser Basel, 2008)
      Discrete differential geometry is an active mathematical terrain where differential geometry and discrete geometry meet and interact. It provides discrete equivalents of the geometric notions and methods of differential ...
    • Discrete non-commutative integrability: the proof of a conjecture by M. Kontsevich 

      [OWP-2009-24] Di Francesco, Philippe; Kedem, Rinat (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-17)
      We prove a conjecture of Kontsevich regarding the solutions of rank two recursion relations for non-commutative variables which, in the commutative case, reduce to rank two cluster algebras of affine type. The conjecture ...
    • Discrete Translates in Lp (R) 

      [OWP-2015-09] Olevskij, Aleksandr M.; Ulanovskii, Alexander (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2015-06-18)
      A set $\Lambda$ is called $p$-spectral if there is a function $g \in L^p (\mathbb{R})$ such that all $\Lambda$-translates $\{g(t-\lambda),\lambda \in \Lambda\}$ span $L^p(\mathbb{R})$. We prove that exponentially small ...
    • Dispersive Equations and Nonlinear Waves 

      [OWS-45] Koch, Herbert; Tataru, Daniel; Vişan, Monica (Birkhäuser Basel, 2014)
      The first part of the book provides an introduction to key tools and techniques in dispersive equations: Strichartz estimates, bilinear estimates, modulation and adapted function spaces, with an application to the generalized ...
    • Dominance and Transmissions in Supertropical Valuation Theory 

      [OWP-2011-07] Izhakian, Zur; Knebusch, Manfred; Rowen, Louis (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2011)
      This paper is a sequel of [IKR1], where we defined supervaluations on a commutative ring $R$ and studied a dominance relation $\Phi >= v$ between supervaluations $\varphi$ and $\upsilon$ on $R$, aiming at an enrichment of ...

    • Drawing large pictures at random : Oberwolfach Lecture 2007 

      [OWP-2007-08] Wendelin, Werner (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2007)

      For each fixed number $\varepsilon$ in $(0, 1)$ we construct a bounded linear operator on the Banach space $\ell_1$ having a certain orbit which intersects every cone of aperture $\varepsilon$, but with every orbit avoiding ...
    • Equidistribution of Elements of Norm 1 in Cyclic Extensions 

      [OWP-2014-14] Petersen, Kathleen L.; Sinclair, Christopher D. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2014-08-20)
      Upon quotienting by units, the elements of norm 1 in a number field $K$ form a countable subset of a torus of dimension $r_1+r_2-1$ where $r_1$ are the numbers of real and pairs of complex embeddings. When $K$ is Galois ...
