    • Inductive Freeness of Ziegler’s Canonical Multiderivations for Reflection Arrangements 

      [OWP-2017-14] Hoge, Torsten; Röhrle, Gerhard (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2017-04-30)
      Let $A$ be a free hyperplane arrangement. In 1989, Ziegler showed that the restriction $A''$ of $A$ to any hyperplane endowed with the natural multiplicity is then a free multiarrangement. We initiate a study of the stronger ...

      [OWR-2014-44] (2014) - (28 Sep - 04 Oct 2014)
      Statistical analysis of non-Euclidean data such as data on manifolds is an active and established topic of research, for instance, in the statistical analysis of shape. However, many types of data naturally reside in metric ...
