• 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Alternative iterative methods for nonexpansive mappings, rates of convergence and applications 

      [OWP-2009-19] Colao, Vittorio; Leuştean, Laurenţiu; López, Genaro; Martín Márquez, Victoria (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009)
      Alternative iterative methods for a nonexpansive mapping in a Banach space are proposed and proved to be convergent to a common solution to a fixed point problem and a variational inequality. We give rates of asymptotic ...
    • Geometric quantization of integrable systems with hyperbolic singularities 

      [OWP-2009-01] Hamilton, Mark D.; Miranda, Eva (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009)
      We construct the geometric quantization of a compact surface using a singular real polarization coming from an integrable system. Such a polarization always has singularities, which we assume to be of nondegenerate type. ...
    • Heisenberg-Weyl algebra revisited: combinatorics of words and paths 

      [OWP-2009-02] Blasiak, Pawel; Duchamp, Gérard H. E.; Horzela, Andrzej; Penson, Karol A.; Solomon, Allan I. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009)
      The Heisenberg–Weyl algebra, which underlies virtually all physical representations of Quantum Theory, is considered from the combinatorial point of view. We provide a concrete model of the algebra in terms of paths on a ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Singer quadrangles 

      [OWP-2009-07] Winter, Stefaan de; Shult, Ernest E.; Thas, Koen (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-01)
    • Classification of idempotent states on the compact quantum groups Uq(2), SUq(2) and SOq(3) 

      [OWP-2009-08] Franz, Uwe; Skalski, Adam; Tomatsu, Reiji (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-02)
      We give a simple characterisation of those idempotent states on compact quantum groups which arise as Haar states on quantum subgroups, show that all idempotent states on quantum groups $U_q(2)$, $SU_q(2)$, and $SO_q(3) ...
    • 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 ...
    • Homological properties of piecewise hereditary algebras 

      [OWP-2009-11] Happel, Dieter; Zacharia, Dan (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-05)
      Let $\Lambda$ be a finite dimensional algebra over an algebraically closed field $k$. We will investigate homological properties of piecewise hereditary algebras $\Lambda$. In particular we give lower and upper bounds of ...
    • 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 ...
    • An introduction to heavy-tailed and sibexponential distributions 

      [OWP-2009-13] Foss, Sergey; Koršunov, Dmitrij; Zachary, Stan (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-07)
      This text studies heavy-tailed distributions in probability theory, and especially convolutions of such distributions. The mail goal is to provide a complete and comprehensive introduction to the theory of long-tailed ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Control of Volterra systems with scalar kernels 

      [OWP-2009-16] Haak, Bernhard Hermann; Jacob, Birgit (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-10)
      Volterra observations systems with scalar kernels are studied. New sufficient conditions for admissibility of observation operators are developed and some examples are discussed.

      [OWP-2009-17] Olevskij, Aleksandr M.; Ulanovskii, Alexander (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-11)
      Let $\Lambda \subset \mathbb{R}$ be a uniformly discrete sequence and $S \subset \mathbb{R}$ a compact set. We prove that if there exists a bounded sequence of functions in Paley-Wiener space $PW_s$, which approximates ...

      [OWP-2009-18] Dutour Sikirić, Mathieu; Schürmann, Achill; Vallentin, Frank (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2009-03-12)
      The contact polytope of a lattice is the convex hull of its shortest vectors. In this paper we classify the facets of the contact polytope of the Leech lattice up to symmetry. There are 1, 197, 362, 269, 604, 214, 277, 200 ...

      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 ...
