LateTime Behaviour of Israel Particles in a FLRW Spacetime with Λ>0
[OWP201619] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 201610)In this paper we study the relativistic Boltzmann equation in a spatially flat FLRW spacetime. We consider Israel particles, which are the relativistic counterpart of the Maxwellian particles, and obtain globalintime ... 
Laws of small numbers : extremes and rare events
(Birkhäuser Basel, 1994)Since the publication of the first edition of this seminar book in 1994, the theory and applications of extremes and rare events have enjoyed an enormous and still increasing interest. The intention of the book is to give ... 
Lectures on Algebraic Statistics
[OWS39] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2009)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? ... 
Lectures on HermitianEinstein metrics for stable bundles and KählerEinstein metrics
(Birkhäuser Basel, 1987)These notes are based on the lectures I delivered at the German Mathematical Society Seminar in Schloss Michkeln in DUsseldorf in June. 1986 on HermitianEinstein metrics for stable bundles and KahlerEinstein metrics. The ... 
Lectures on spaces of nonpositive curvature : with an appendix by Misha Brin Ergodicity of geodesic flows
(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
(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
[OWP201101] (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
[OWP201610] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20160617)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
[OWP201306] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20130314)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 ... 
Linear Syzygies, Hyperbolic Coxeter Groups and Regularity
[OWP201715] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20170524)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. ... 
Linking and Closed Orbits
[OWP201315] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20130610)We show that the Lagrangian of classical mechanics on a Riemannian manifold of bounded geometry carries a periodic solution of motion with prescribed energy, provided the potential satis es an asymptotic growth ... 
Local asymptotics for the area of random walk excursions
[OWP201319] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20130905)We prove a local limit theorem for the area of the positive exursion of random walks with zero mean and finite variance. Our main result complements previous work of Caravenna and Chaumont, Sohier, as well as ... 
Localized Endomorphisms of Graph Algebras
[OWP201104] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2011057)Endomorphisms of graph $C^*$algebras are investigated. A combinatorial approach to analysis of permutative endomorphisms is developed. Then invertibility criteria for localized endomorphisms are given. Furthermore, ... 
Locally Compact Abelian pGroups Revisited
[OWP201706] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20170303)Even though the structure of locally compact abelian groups is generally considered to be rather thoroughly known through a wealth of publications, one keeps encountering corners that are not elucidated in uptodate ... 
Locally conformally Kähler manifolds admitting a holomorphic conformal flow
[OWP201013] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20100315)A manifold $M$ is locally conformally Kähler (LCK) if it admits a Kähler covering $\tilde{M}$ with monodromy acting by holomorphic homotheties. Let $M$ be an LCK manifold admitting a holomorphic conformal flow of ... 
Looking Back on Inverse Scattering Theory
[OWP201724] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20171005)We present an essay on the mathematical development of inverse scattering theory for timeharmonic waves during the past fifty years together with some personal memories of our participation in these events. 
Low rank differential equations for hamiltonian matrix nearness problems
[OWP201301] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20130208)For a Hamiltonian matrix with purely imaginary eigenvalues, we aim to determine the nearest Hamiltonian matrix such that so me or all eigenvalues leave the imaginary axis. Conversely, for a Hamiltonian matrix with all ... 
The Magic Square of Reflections and Rotations
[OWP201813] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20180701)We show how Coxeter’s work implies a bijection between complex reflection groups of rank two and real reflection groups in 0(3). We also consider this magic square of reflections and rotations in the framework of Clifford ... 
The Martin Boundary of Relatively Hyperbolic Groups with Virtually Abelian Parabolic Subgroups
[OWP201803] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20180319)Given a probability measure on a finitely generated group, its Martin boundary is a way to compactify the group using the Green's function of the corresponding random walk. We give a complete topological characterization ... 
Mathematical Theory of Evolutionary FluidFlow Structure Interactions
[OWS48] (Birkhäuser (SpringerNature), 2018)This book is devoted to the study of coupled partial differential equation models, which describe complex dynamical systems occurring in modern scientific applications such as fluid/flowstructure interactions. The first ...
