[TB200214] (2002)  (10 Mar  16 Mar 2002) 
1445a  Probability, Trees and Algorithms
[OWR201450] (2014)  (02 Nov  08 Nov 2014)The subject of this workshop were probabilistic aspects of algorithms for fundamental problems such as sorting, searching, selecting of and within data, random permutations, algorithms based on combinatorial trees or search ... 
Das Problem der Kugelpackung
[SNAP2016004DE] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2016)Wie würdest du Tennisbälle oder Orangen stapeln? Oder allgemeiner formuliert: Wie dicht lassen sich identische 3dimensionale Objekte überschneidungsfrei anordnen? Das Problem, welches auch Anwendungen in der digitalen ... 
Le problème ternaire de Goldbach
[SNAP2014003FR] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2024)Leonhard Euler (1707–1783), l’un des plus grands mathématiciens du XVIIIe siècle et de tous les temps, entretenait une correspondance régulière avec l’un de ses amis: Christian Goldbach (1690–1764), un amateur polymathe ... 
Products of pairs of Dehn twists and maximal real Lefschetz fibrations
[OWP201132] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2011)We address the problem of existence and uniqueness of a factorization of a given element of the modular group into a product of two Dehn twists. As a geometric application, we conclude that any maximal real elliptic ... 
0746  Professional Development of Mathematics Teachers  Research and Practice from an International Perspective
[OWR200752] (2007)  (11 Nov  17 Nov 2007)The Oberwolfach Workshop on “Teachers Professional Development” gathered a wide spectrum of topics of international research and practice in the field of mathematics education. Wellknown researchers from all over the world ... 
0826  Profinite and Asymptotic Group Theory
[OWR200828] (2008)  (22 Jun  28 Jun 2008)This meeting was focused on asymptotic aspects of group theory. The resulting problems lead, in particular, to the study of infinite groups, with an emphasis on the asymptotic behaviour of their finite quotients. Properties ... 
Profinite groups
[SNAP2016014EN] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2016)Profinite objects are mathematical constructions used to collect, in a uniform manner, facts about infinitely many finite objects. We shall review recent progress in the theory of profinite groups, due to Nikolov and Segal, ... 
0321  Profinite Groups and Discrete Subgroups of Lie Groups
[TB200322] (2003)  (18 May  24 May 2003) 
0718b  Progress in Surface Theory
[OWR200724] (2007)  (29 Apr  05 May 2007)The theory of surfaces has undergone substantial changes in recent years, with many different active areas at this point in time. It has become mainstream to study minimal surfaces and constant mean curvature surfaces in ... 
1018  Progress in Surface Theory
[OWR201021] (2010)  (02 May  08 May 2010)The theory of surfaces is interpreted these days as a prototype of submanifold geometry and is characterized by the substantial application of PDE methods and methods from the theory of integrable systems, in addition to ... 
1318a  Progress in Surface Theory
[OWR201321] (2013)  (28 Apr  04 May 2013)Over the last 30 years global surface theory has become pivotal in the understanding of low dimensional global phenomena. At the same time surface geometry became a platform on which seemingly different areas of mathematics ... 
Prony’s method: an old trick for new problems
[SNAP2018004EN] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20180306)In 1795, French mathematician Gaspard de Prony invented an ingenious trick to solve a recovery problem, aiming at reconstructing functions from their values at given points, which arose from a specific application in ... 
1733  Proof Complexity and Beyond
[OWR201737] (2017)  (13 Aug  19 Aug 2017)Proof complexity is a multidisciplinary intellectual endeavor that addresses questions of the general form “how difficult is it to prove certain mathematical facts?” The current workshop focused on recent advances in our ... 
2413  Proof Complexity and Beyond
[OWR202415] (2024)  (24 Mar  29 Mar 2024)Proof complexity is a multidisciplinary research area that addresses questions of the general form "how difficult is it to prove certain mathematical facts?'' The current workshop focussed on recent advances in our ... 
Proof Mining and the Convex Feasibility Problem : the Curious Case of Dykstra's Algorithm
[OWP202406] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20240715)In a recent proof mining application, the prooftheoretical analysis of Dykstra's cyclic projections algorithm resulted in quantitative information expressed via primitive recursive functionals in the sense of Gödel. This ... 
Proof mining in metric fixed point theory and ergodic theory
[OWP200905] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009)In this survey we present some recent applications of proof mining to the fixed point theory of (asymptotically) nonexpansive mappings and to the metastability (in the sense of Terence Tao) of ergodic averages in uniformly ... 
The PseudoHyperresolution and Applications
[OWP201717] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 20170704)Resolving objects in an abelian category by injective (projective) resolutions is a fundamental problem in mathematics, and this article aims at introducing a particular solution called “Pseudohyperresolutions”. This ... 
A PseudoPolynomial Algorithm for Mean Payoff Stochastic Games with Perfect Information and Few Random Positions
[OWP201520] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2015)We consider twoperson zerosum stochastic mean payoff games with perfect information, or BWRgames, given by a digraph $G = (V,E)$, with local rewards $r : E \to \mathbb{Z}$, and three types of positions: black $V_B$, ...
