[SNAP-2018-003-EN] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-03-06)Group theory is the study of symmetry, and has many applications both within and outside mathematics. In this snapshot, we give a brief introduction to symmetries, and how to compute with them.
[SNAP-2018-002-EN] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-03-05)In this snapshot we present the concept of topological recursion – a new, surprisingly powerful formalism at the border of mathematics and physics, which has been actively developed within the last decade. After introducing ...
[SNAP-2018-004-EN] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-03-06)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 ...
[SNAP-2018-001-EN] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-02-27)Algebraic Statistics builds on the idea that statistical models can be understood via polynomials. Many statistical models are parameterized by polynomials in the model parameters; others are described implicitly by ...
