• 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 ...
    • New representations of matroids and generalizations 

      [OWP-2011-18] Izhakian, Zur; Rhodes, John L. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2011)
      We extend the notion of matroid representations by matrices over fields by considering new representations of matroids by matrices over finite semirings, more precisely over the boolean and the superboolean semirings. This ...
    • On Concentrators and Related Approximation Constants 

      [OWP-2013-14] Bondarenko, A. V.; Prymak, A.; Radchenko, D. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2013-06-10)
      Pippenger ([Pip77]) showed the existence of (6m, 4m, 3m, 6)-concentrator for each positive integer m using a probabilistic method. We generalize his approach and prove existence of (6m, 4m, 3m, 5.05)-concentrator (which ...
    • On the Gauss Algebra of Toric Algebras 

      [OWP-2018-07] Herzog, Jürgen; Jafari, Raheleh; Nasrollah Nejad, Abbas (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-04-25)
      Let $A$ be a $K$-subalgebra of the polynomial ring $S=K[x_1,\ldots,x_d]$ of dimension $d$, generated by finitely many monomials of degree $r$. Then the Gauss algebra $\mathbb{G}(A)$ of $A$ is generated by monomials of ...
    • On the Invariants of the Cohomology of Complements of Coxeter Arrangements 

      [OWP-2018-21] Douglass, J. Matthew; Pfeiffer, Götz; Röhrle, Gerhard (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-10-22)
      We refine Brieskorn's study of the cohomology of the complement of the reflection arrangement of a finite Coxeter group W. As a result we complete the verification of a conjecture by Felder and Veselov that gives an explicit ...
    • On Vietoris-Rips Complexes of Ellipses 

      [OWP-2017-11] Adamaszek, Michal; Adams, Henry; Reddy, Samadwara (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2017-04-25)
      For $X$ a metric space and $r > 0$ a scale parameter, the Vietoris–Rips complex $VR_<(X; r)$ (resp. $VR_≤(X; r)$) has $X$ as its vertex set, and a finite subset $\sigma \subseteq X$ as a simplex whenever the diameter of ...
    • Plethysms, replicated Schur functions and series, with applications to vertex operators 

      [OWP-2010-12] Fauser, Bertfried; Jarvis, Peter D.; King, Ronald C. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2010-03-14)
      Specializations of Schur functions are exploited to define and evaluate the Schur functions $s_\lambda [\alpha X]$ and plethysms $s_\lambda [\alpha s_\nu(X))]$ for any $\alpha$-integer, real or complex. Plethysms are then ...
    • Positive Margins and Primary Decomposition 

      [OWP-2012-06] Kahle, Thomas; Rauh, Johannes; Sullivant, Seth (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2012)
      We study random walks on contingency tables with fixed marginals, corresponding to a (log-linear) hierarchical model. If the set of allowed moves is not a Markov basis, then there exist tables with the same marginals that ...
    • A Uniform Model for Kirillov-Reshetikhin Crystals I: Lifting the Parabolic Quantum Bruhat Graph 

      [OWP-2012-18] Lenart, Cristian; Naito, Satoshi; Sagaki, Daisuke; Schilling, Anne; Shimozono, Mark (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2012)
      We consider two lifts of the parabolic quantum Bruhat graph, one into the Bruhat order in the affine Weyl group and the other into a level-zero weight poset first considered by Littelmann. The lift into the affine Weyl ...
    • The Varchenko Determinant of a Coxeter Arrangement 

      [OWP-2017-33] Pfeiffer, Götz; Randriamaro, Hery (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2017-11-24)
      The Varchenko determinant is the determinant of a matrix defined from an arrangement of hyperplanes. Varchenko proved that this determinant has a beautiful factorization. It is, however, not possible to use this factorization ...
    • Varieties of Invariant Subspaces Given by Littlewood-Richardson Tableaux 

      [OWP-2014-01] Kosakowska, Justyna; Schmidmeier, Markus (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2014-04-25)
      Given partitions $\alpha, \beta, \gamma$, the short exact sequences $0 \rightarrow N_\alpha \rightarrow N_\beta \rightarrow N_\gamma \rightarrow 0$ of nilpotent linear operators of Jordan types $\alpha, \beta, \gamma$, ...
