• Minimal Riesz energy on the sphere for axis-supported external fields 

      [OWP-2009-04] Brauchart, Johann S.; Dragnev, Peter D.; Saff, Edward B. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009)
      Abstract. We investigate the minimal Riesz $s$-energy problem for positive measures on the d-dimensional unit sphere $\mathbb{S}^d$ in the presence of an external field induced by a point charge, and more generally by ...
    • A new counting function for the zeros of holomorphic curves 

      [OWP-2009-25] Anderson, J. M.; Hinkkanen, Aimo (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-18)
      Let $f_1,..., f_p$ be entire functions that do not all vanish at any point, so that $(f_1,..., f_p)$ is a holomorphic curve in $\mathbb{CP}^{p-1}$. We introduce a new and more careful notion of counting the order of the ...
    • On Siegel modular forms of level p and their properties mod p 

      [OWP-2009-23] Böcherer, Siegfried; Nagaoka, Shoyu (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-16)
      Using theta series we construct Siegel modular forms of level p which behave well modulo $p$ in all cusps. This construction allows us to show (under a mild condition) that all Siegel modular forms of level p and weight 2 ...
    • On the distribution of a second class particle in the asymmetric simple exclusion process 

      [OWP-2009-22] Tracy, Craig A.; Widom, Harold (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-15)
      We give an exact expression for the distribution of the position $X(t)$ of a single second class particle in the asymmetric simple exclusion process (ASEP) where initially the second class particle is located at the origin ...
    • On the geometry of the space of fibrations 

      [OWP-2009-15] Humilière, Vincent; Roy, Nicolas (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-09)
      We study geometrical aspects of the space of fibrations between two given manifolds $M$ and $B$, from the point of view of Fréchet geometry. As a first result, we show that any connected component of this space is the ...
    • On the non-analyticity locus of an arc-analytic function 

      [OWP-2009-03] Kurdyka, Krzysztof; Parusinski, Adam (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-02-21)
      A function is called arc-analytic if it is real analytic on each real analytic arc. In real analytic geometry there are many examples of arc-analytic functions that are not real analytic. Arc analytic functions appear ...
    • Optimal bounds for the colored Tverberg Problem 

      [OWP-2009-27] Blagojevic, Pavle V. M.; Matschke, Benjamin; Ziegler, Günter M. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-20)
      We prove a "Tverberg type" multiple intersection theorem. It strengthens the prime case of the original Tverberg theorem from 1966, as well as the topological Tverberg theorem of Bárány et al. (1980), by adding color ...
    • Pointwise hyperbolicity implies uniform hyperbolicity 

      [OWP-2009-06] Hasselblatt, Boris; Pesin, Yakov B.; Schmeling, Jörg (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-02-23)
      We provide a general mechanism for obtaining uniform information from pointwise data. A sample result is that if a diffeomorphism of a compact Riemannian manifold has pointwise expanding and contracting continuous invariant ...
    • Positivity of the T-system cluster algebra 

      [OWP-2009-21] Di Francesco, Philippe; Kedem, Rinat (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-14)
      We give the path model solution for the cluster algebra variables of the $A_r$ T-system with generic boundary conditions. The solutions are partition functions of (strongly) non-intersecting paths on weighted graphs. The ...
    • Proof mining in metric fixed point theory and ergodic theory 

      [OWP-2009-05] Leuştean, Laurenţiu (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 ...
    • Simple graded commutative algebras 

      [OWP-2009-12] Morier-Genoud, Sophie; Ovsienko, Valentin (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-06)
      We study the notion of $\Gamma$-graded commutative algebra for an arbitrary abelian group $\Gamma$. The main examples are the Clifford algebras already treated in [2]. We prove that the Clifford algebras are the only ...
    • Simple vector bundles on plane degenerations of an elliptic curve 

      [OWP-2009-20] Bodnarchuk, Lesya; Drozd, Jurij A.; Greuel, Gert-Martin (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-13)
      In 1957 Atiyah classified simple and indecomposable vector bundles on an elliptic curve. In this article we generalize his classification by describing the simple vector bundles on all reduced plane cubic curves. Our main ...
    • Singer quadrangles 

      [OWP-2009-07] Winter, Stefaan de; Shult, Ernest E.; Thas, Koen (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-01)
    • Stein's method for dependent random variables occuring in statistical mechanics 

      [OWP-2009-09] Eichelsbacher, Peter; Löwe, Matthias (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-03)
      We obtain rates of convergence in limit theorems of partial sums $S_n$ for certain sequences of dependent, identically distributed random variables, which arise naturally in statistical mechanics, in particular, in the ...
    • A study on gradient blow up for viscosity solutions of fully nonlinear, uniformly elliptic equations 

      [OWP-2009-10] Kawohl, Bernhard; Kutev, Nickolai (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-04)
      We investigate sharp conditions for boundary and interior gradient estimates of continuous viscosity solutions to fully nonlinear, uniformly elliptic equations under Dirichlet boundary conditions. When these conditions are ...
    • Tilting on non-commutative rational projective curves 

      [OWP-2009-14] Burban, Igor; Drozd, Jurij A. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-08)
      In this article we introduce a new class of non-commutative projective curves and show that in certain cases the derived category of coherent sheaves on them has a tilting complex. In particular, we prove that the right ...
    • Weighted Fourier inequalities for radial functions 

      [OWP-2009-26] Gorbachev, D.; Liflyand, E.; Tichonovič, S. V. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-19)
      Weighted $L^p(\mathbb{R}^n) \to L^q(\mathbb{R}^n)$ Fourier inequalities are studied. We prove Pitt-Boas type results on integrability with power weights of the Fourier transform of a radial function.
