Photonic Crystals: Mathematical Analysis and Numerical Approximation
[OWS42] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2011)This volume collects a series of lectures which provide an introduction to the mathematical background needed for the modeling and simulation of light, in particular in periodic media, and for its applications in optical ... 
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 ... 
Positional Games
[OWS44] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2014)This text is based on a lecture course given by the authors in the framework of Oberwolfach Seminars at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach in May, 2013. It is intended to serve as a thorough introduction to ... 
Representations of Finite Groups: Local Cohomology and Support
[OWS43] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2012)The seminar focuses on a recent solution, by the authors, of a long standing problem concerning the stable module category (of not necessarily finite dimensional representations) of a finite group. The proof draws on ideas ... 
Scaling limits and models in physical processes
[OWS28] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1998) 
Seminar on empirical processes
[OWS09] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1987) 
Seminar on geometrical measure theory
[OWS07] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1986) 
Stochastic approximation and optimization of random systems
[OWS17] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1992)The DMV seminar "Stochastische Approximation und Optimierung zufalliger Systeme" was held at Blaubeuren, 28. 5. 4. 6. 1989. The goal was to give an approach to theory and application of stochas tic approximation in view ... 
Stochastische Geometrie
[OWS16] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1990)Vom 1. bis 8. Oktober 1989 fand im Kloster Neresheim das DMVSeminar "Stochastische Geometrie" statt. Das Ziel dieser Veranstaltung war es, die Stochastische Geometrie, die sich in den letzten Jahren lebhaft entwickelt hat ... 
Surgery theory and geometry of representations
[OWS11] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1988)These notes were prepared for the DMVSeminar held in Dusseldorf, Schloss Mickeln from June 28 to July 5, 1987. They consist of two parts which can be read independently. The reader is presumed to have a basic education ... 
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. ... 
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 ... 
Topics in the geometry of projective space : recent work of F. L. Zak
[OWS04] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1984)The main topics discussed at the D. M. V. Seminar were the connectedness theorems of Fulton and Hansen, linear normality and subvarieties of small codimension in projective spaces. They are closely related; thus the ... 
Topological and Bivariant Ktheory
[OWS36] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2007)Topological Ktheory is one of the most important invariants for noncommutative algebras equipped with a suitable topology or bornology. Bott periodicity, homotopy invariance, and various long exact sequences distinguish ... 
Tropical Algebraic Geometry
[OWS35] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2007)Tropical geometry is algebraic geometry over the semifield of tropical numbers, i.e., the real numbers and negative infinity enhanced with the (max,+)arithmetics. Geometrically, tropical varieties are much simpler than ...
