      [OWP-2013-01] Guglielmi, Nicola; Kreßner, Daniel; Lubich, Christian (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2013-02-08)
      For a Hamiltonian matrix with purely imaginary eigenvalues, we aim to determine the nearest Hamiltonian matrix such that so me or all eigenvalues leave the imaginary axis. Conversely, for a Hamiltonian matrix with all ...

      [OWP-2018-13] Buchweitz, Ragnar-Olaf; Faber, Eleonore; Ingalls, Colin (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-07-01)
      We show how Coxeter’s work implies a bijection between complex reflection groups of rank two and real reflection groups in 0(3). We also consider this magic square of reflections and rotations in the framework of Clifford ...
    • The Martin Boundary of Relatively Hyperbolic Groups with Virtually Abelian Parabolic Subgroups

      Given a probability measure on a finitely generated group, its Martin boundary is a way to compactify the group using the Green's function of the corresponding random walk. We give a complete topological characterization ...

      Squarefree powers of edge ideals are intimately related to matchings of the underlying graph. In this paper we give bounds for the regularity of squarefree powers of edge ideals, and we consider the question of when such ...

      We extend previous work of max-linear models on finite directed acyclic graphs to infinite graphs, and investigate their relations to classical percolation theory. We formulate results for the oriented square lattice graph ...

      In this article we develop a new method to deal with maximal Cohen-Macaulay modules over non-isolated surface singularities. In particular, we give a negative answer on an old question of Schreyer about surface singularities ...
    • Maximal Quaternion Orders in Quadratic Extensions - in Hurwitz’s Diaries 

      [OWP-2020-16] Oswald, Nicola; Steuding, Jörn (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2020-08-03)
      We present and comment on some unpublished work of Adolf Hurwitz on quaternion arithmetic from his diaries.
    • A McKay Correspondence for Reflection Groups 

      [OWP-2018-14] Buchweitz, Ragnar-Olaf; Faber, Eleonore; Ingalls, Colin (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-07-02)
      We construct a noncommutative desingularization of the discriminant of a finite reflection group $G$ as a quotient of the skew group ring $A=S*G$. If $G$ is generated by order two reflections, then this quotient identifies ...
    • The McKay-conjecture for exceptional groups and odd primes 

      [OWP-2007-07] Späth, Britta (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2007)
      Let $\mathbf{G}$ be a simply-connected simple algebraic group over an algebraically closed field of characteristic p with a Frobenius map $F:\mathbf{G}→\mathbf{G}$ and $\mathbf{G}:=\mathbf{G}^F$, such that the root system ...

      We obtain a Mehler–Heine type formula for a class of generalized hypergeometric polynomials. This type of formula describes the asymptotics of polynomials scale conveniently. As a consequence of this formula, we obtain ...

      For $N$-point best-packing configurations $\omega_N$ on a compact metric space $(A, \rho)$, we obtain estimates for the mesh-separation ratio $\gamma(\rho_N , A)$, which is the quotient of the covering radius of $\omega_N$ ...

      A geometry with parallel skew-symmetric torsion is a Riemannian manifold carrying a metric connection with parallel skew-symmetric torsion. Besides the trivial case of the Levi-Civita connection, geometries with non-vanishing ...
