Ten lectures on random media
[OWS32] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2002)The following notes grew out oflectures held during the DMVSeminar on Random Media in November 1999 at the Mathematics Research Institute of Oberwolfach, and in FebruaryMarch 2000 at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris. ... 
Infinite dimensional Kähler manifolds
[OWS31] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2001)Infinite dimensional manifolds, Lie groups and algebras arise naturally in many areas of mathematics and physics. Having been used mainly as a tool for the study of finite dimensional objects, the emphasis has changed and ... 
Hermann Weyl's Raum  Zeit  Materie and a general introduction to his scientific work
[OWS30] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2001)Historical interest and studies of Weyl's role in the interplay between 20thcentury mathematics, physics and philosophy have been increasing since the middle 1980s, triggered by different activities at the occasion of the ... 
Polytopes  combinatorics and computation
[OWS29] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2000)Questions that arose from linear programming and combinatorial optimization have been a driving force for modern polytope theory, such as the diameter questions motivated by the desire to understand the complexity of the ... 
Scaling limits and models in physical processes

Classical nonintegrability, quantum chaos
[OWS27] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1997)Our DMV Seminar on 'Classical Nonintegrability, Quantum Chaos' intended to introduce students and beginning researchers to the techniques applied in nonin tegrable classical and quantum dynamics. Several of these lectures ... 
Geometry of higher dimensional algebraic varieties
[OWS26] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1997)This book is based on lecture notes of a seminar of the Deutsche Mathematiker Vereinigung held by the authors at Oberwolfach from April 2 to 8, 1995. It gives an introduction to the classification theory and geometry of ... 
Lectures on spaces of nonpositive curvature : with an appendix by Misha Brin Ergodicity of geodesic flows
[OWS25] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1995)Singular spaces with upper curvature bounds and, in particular, spaces of nonpositive curvature, have been of interest in many fields, including geometric (and combinatorial) group theory, topology, dynamical systems and ... 
Homotopy theory and models
[OWS24] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1995)In keeping with the general aim of the "D.M.V.Seminar" series, this book is princi pally a report on a group of lectures held at Blaubeuren by Professors H. J. Baues, S. Halperin and J.M. Lemaire, from October 30 to ... 
Laws of small numbers : extremes and rare events
[OWS23] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1994)Since the publication of the first edition of this seminar book in 1994, the theory and applications of extremes and rare events have enjoyed an enormous and still increasing interest. The intention of the book is to give ... 
Topics in control theory
[OWS22] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1993)One of the key concerns in modern control theory is the design of steering strategies. The implementation of such strategies is done by a regulator. Presented here is a selfcontained introduction to the mathematical ... 
Computational algebraic number theory
[OWS21] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1993)Computational algebraic number theory has been attracting broad interest in the last few years due to its potential applications in coding theory and cryptography. For this reason, the Deutsche Mathematiker Vereinigung ... 
Lectures on vanishing theorems
[OWS20] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1992)Introduction M. Kodaira's vanishing theorem, saying that the inverse of an ample invert ible sheaf on a projective complex manifold X has no cohomology below the dimension of X and its generalization, due to Y. Akizuki ... 
Information bounds and nonparametric maximum likelihood estimation
[OWS19] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1992)This book contains the lecture notes for a DMV course presented by the authors at Gunzburg, Germany, in September, 1990. In the course we sketched the theory of information bounds for non parametric and semiparametric ...
