      Let $G(q)$ be a finite Chevalley group, where $q$ is a power of a good prime $p$, and let $U(q)$ be a Sylow $p$-subgroup of $G(q)$. Then a generalized version of a conjecture of Higman asserts that the number $k(U(q))$ of ...

      [OWP-2013-19] Denisov, Denis; Kolb, Martin; Wachtel, Vitali (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2013-09-05)
      We prove a local limit theorem for the area of the positive exursion of random walks with zero mean and finite variance. Our main result complements previous work of Caravenna and Chaumont, Sohier, as well as ...

      [OWP-2013-01] Guglielmi, Nicola; Kreßner, Daniel; Lubich, Christian (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2013-02-08)
      For a Hamiltonian matrix with purely imaginary eigenvalues, we aim to determine the nearest Hamiltonian matrix such that so me or all eigenvalues leave the imaginary axis. Conversely, for a Hamiltonian matrix with all ...

      We obtain a Mehler–Heine type formula for a class of generalized hypergeometric polynomials. This type of formula describes the asymptotics of polynomials scale conveniently. As a consequence of this formula, we obtain ...

      [OWP-2013-13] Bondarenko, A. V.; Hardin, Douglas P.; Saff, Edward B. (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2013-06-10)
      For $N$-point best-packing configurations $\omega_N$ on a compact metric space $(A, \rho)$, we obtain estimates for the mesh-separation ratio $\gamma(\rho_N , A)$, which is the quotient of the covering radius of $\omega_N$ ...
