0601  Combinatorics
[OWR20061] (2006)  (01 Jan  07 Jan 2006)This is the report on the Oberwolfach workshop on Combinatorics, held 1–7 January 2006. Combinatorics is a branch of mathematics studying families of mainly, but not exclusively, ﬁnite or countable structures – discrete ... 
0644  Combinatorics, Probability and Computing
[OWR200648] (2006)  (29 Oct  04 Nov 2006)One of the exciting phenomena in mathematics in recent years has been the widespread and surprisingly eﬀective use of probabilistic methods in diverse areas. The probabilistic point of view has turned out to be 
0627  Computational Group Theory
[OWR200630] (2006)  (02 Jul  08 Jul 2006)This workshop on Computational Group Theory revealed the close connections between its main themes “finitely presented groups”, “permutation groups”, “matrix groups” and “representations of groups”. The meeting also presented ... 
0605  Convex and Algebraic Geometry
[OWR20065] (2006)  (29 Jan  04 Feb 2006)The subjects of convex and algebraic geometry meet primarily in the theory of toric varieties. Toric geometry is the part of algebraic geometry where all maps are given by monomials in suitable coordinates, and all equations ... 
0603  Deformations and Contractions in Mathematics and Physics
[OWR20063] (2006)  (15 Jan  21 Jan 2006)Deformations of mathematical structures are not only important in most parts of mathematics but also to a large extend in physics. Contractions are in some respect dual to deformations. The workshop brought together world ... 
0616  DifferentialAlgebraic Equations
[OWR200618] (2006)  (16 Apr  22 Apr 2006)DifferentialAlgebraic Equations (DAE) are today an independent field of research, which is gaining in importance and becoming of increasing interest for applications and mathematics itself. This workshop has drawn the ... 
0610  Discrete Differential Geometry
[OWR200612] (2006)  (05 Mar  11 Mar 2006)Discrete Differential Geometry is a broad new area where differential geometry (studying smooth curves, surfaces and other manifolds) interacts with discrete geometry (studying polyhedral manifolds), using tools and ideas ... 
0632  Fourdimensional Manifolds
[OWR200635] (2006)  (06 Aug  12 Aug 2006)This workshop has provided a broad panorama of recent developments in the study of topological, smooth, and symplectic 4manifolds. Related invariants of knots and 3manifolds were also discussed. 
0630  Geometric Group Theory, Hyperbolic Dynamics and Symplectic Geometry
[OWR200633] (2006)  (23 Jul  29 Jul 2006)Geometric Group theory, Hyperbolic Dynamics and Symplectic Geometry are young and rapidly developing fields of mathematics. The scientific goal of the workshop was twofold: first, to present some recent breakthroughs, and, ...
