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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
Scaling limits and models in physical processes
[OWS28] (Birkhäuser Basel, 1998) 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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. ... 
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 ... 
The Novikov conjecture : geometry and algebra
[OWS33] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2005) 
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 ... 
Hemodynamical Flows : Modeling, Analysis and Simulation
[OWS37] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2008)This volume consists of six contributions concerning mathematical tools and analysis for the blood flow in arteries and veins. … book will be handy for those who are interested in the description of the flows of fluids ... 
Discrete Differential Geometry
[OWS38] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2008)Discrete differential geometry is an active mathematical terrain where differential geometry and discrete geometry meet and interact. It provides discrete equivalents of the geometric notions and methods of differential ... 
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? ... 
Conformal Differential Geometry
[OWS40] (Birkhäuser Basel, 2010)Conformal invariants (conformally invariant tensors, conformally covariant differential operators, conformal holonomy groups etc.) are of central significance in differential geometry and physics. Wellknown examples of ...
