Fast Solvers for Highly Oscillatory Problems
[SNAP-2018-006-EN] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-06-26)
Waves of diverse types surround us. Sound, light and other waves, such as microwaves, are crucial for speech, mobile phones, and other communication technologies. Elastic waves propagating through the Earth bounce ...
Geometry behind one of the Painlevé III differential equations
[SNAP-2018-010-EN] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-06-20)
The Painlevé equations are second order differential equations, which were first studied more than 100 years ago. Nowadays they arise in many areas in mathematics and mathematical physics. This snapshot discusses the ...
Computing with symmetries
[SNAP-2018-003-EN] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-03-06)
Group theory is the study of symmetry, and has many applications both within and outside mathematics. In this snapshot, we give a brief introduction to symmetries, and how to compute with them.
The mathematics of aquatic locomotion
[SNAP-2018-008-EN] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-06-19)
Aquatic locomotion is a self-propelled motion through a liquid medium. It can be of biological nature (fish, microorganisms,. . .) or performed by robotic swimmers. This snapshot aims to introduce the reader to some ...
[SNAP-2018-009-EN] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-06-19)
In this snapshot we discuss the notion of codimension, which is, in a sense, “dual” to the notion of dimension and is useful when studying the relative position of one object insider another one.
