• Ten lectures on random media 

      [OWS-32] Bolthausen, Erwin; Sznitman, Alain-Sol (Birkhäuser Basel, 2002)
      The following notes grew out oflectures held during the DMV-Seminar on Random Media in November 1999 at the Mathematics Research Institute of Oberwolfach, and in February-March 2000 at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris. ...
    • Topics in control theory 

      [OWS-22] Knobloch, Hans W.; Isidori, Alberto; Dietrich, Flockerzi (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 self-contained introduction to the mathematical ...
    • Topics in the geometry of projective space : recent work of F. L. Zak 

      [OWS-04] Lazarsfeld, Robert; Ven, Alphons A. F. van de (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 K-theory 

      [OWS-36] Cuntz, Joachim; Meyer, Ralf; Rosenberg, Jonathan M. (Birkhäuser Basel, 2007)
      Topological K-theory 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 

      [OWS-35] Itenberg, Ilia; Mikhalkin, Grigory; Shustin, Eugenii (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 ...
