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 ... 
Lectures on Algebraic Statistics
[OWS39] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2009)How does an algebraic geometer studying secant varieties further the understanding of hypothesis tests in statistics? Why would a statistician working on factor analysis raise open problems about determinantal varieties? ... 
Lectures on HermitianEinstein metrics for stable bundles and KählerEinstein metrics
[OWS08] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1987)These notes are based on the lectures I delivered at the German Mathematical Society Seminar in Schloss Michkeln in DUsseldorf in June. 1986 on HermitianEinstein metrics for stable bundles and KahlerEinstein metrics. The ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
Mathematical Theory of Evolutionary FluidFlow Structure Interactions
[OWS48] (Birkhäuser (SpringerNature), 2018)This book is devoted to the study of coupled partial differential equation models, which describe complex dynamical systems occurring in modern scientific applications such as fluid/flowstructure interactions. The first ... 
Mathematical theory of finite and boundary element methods
[OWS15] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1990)These are the lecture notes of the seminar "Mathematische Theorie der finiten Element und Randelementmethoden" organized by the "Deutsche MathematikerVereinigung" and held in Dusseldorf from 07.  14. of June 1987. Finite ... 
The mathematics of the Bose gas and its condensation
[OWS34] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2005)This book contains a unique survey of the mathematically rigorous results about the quantummechanical manybody problem that have been obtained by the authors in the past seven years. It addresses a topic that is not only ... 
Moduli Spaces of Riemannian Metrics
[OWS46] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2015)This book studies certain spaces of Riemannian metrics on both compact and noncompact manifolds. These spaces are defined by various signbased curvature conditions, with special attention paid to positive scalar curvature ... 
Nonlinear methods in Riemannian and Kählerian geometry
[OWS10] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1986)In this book, I present an expanded version of the contents of my lectures at a Seminar of the DMV (Deutsche Mathematiker Vereinigung) in Diisseldorf, June, 1986. The title "Nonlinear methods in complex geometry" already ... 
The Novikov conjecture : geometry and algebra
[OWS33] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2005) 
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

[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 ...
