0614  Arbeitsgemeinschaft mit aktuellem Thema: Higher Torsion Invariants in Differential Topology and Algebraic KTheory
[OWR200616] (2006)  (02 Apr  08 Apr 2006)The purpose of this Arbeitsgemeinschaft was to study and—as far as possible—compare three generalisations of the classical FranzReidemeister torsion to families E → B of manifolds. Dwyer, Weiss and Williams construct ... 
0613  Representations of Finite Groups
[OWR200615] (2006)  (26 Mar  01 Apr 2006)The workshop ”Representations of finite groups” was organized by A. Kleshchev (Eugene), M. Linckelmann (Aberdeen), G. Malle (Kaiserslautern) and J. Rickard (Bristol). It covered a wide variety of aspects of the representation ... 
0612  Geometric Numerical Integration
[OWR200614] (2006)  (19 Mar  25 Mar 2006)The subject of this workshop was numerical methods that preserve geometric properties of the flow of an ordinary or partial differential equation. This was complemented by the question as to how preserving the geometry ... 
0611  Analysis and Topology in Interaction
[OWR200613] (2006)  (12 Mar  18 Mar 2006)This workshop brought together, on the one side, mathematicians working in areas of global analysis and index theory, which are related with problems in algebraic topology, and on the other side, specialists in ﬁelds like ... 
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 ... 
0609  Numerical Techniques for Optimization Problems with PDE Constraints
[OWR200611] (2006)  (26 Feb  04 Mar 2006)Optimization problems with partial diﬀerential equation (PDE) constraints arise in many science and engineering applications. Their robust and eﬃcient solution present many mathematical challenges and requires a tight ... 
0608c  MiniWorkshop: On the Reception of Isaac Newton in Europe
[OWR200610] (2006)  (19 Feb  25 Feb 2006)A threevolume book on all aspects of the European reception of Isaac Newton’s work is in preparation, for publication in 2008 by Continuum Press (London). This workshop involved the important subset of contributors working ... 
0608b  MiniWorkshop: L2Spectral Invariants and the Integrated Density of States
[OWR20069] (2006)  (19 Feb  25 Feb 2006)L2 spectral invariants play an increasingly important role in the analysis of infinite geometric objects allowing for the action of a group. Typical such objects are covering spaces like Riemannian manifolds and graphs. ... 
0608a  MiniWorkshop: Thick Subcategories  Classifications and Applications
[OWR20068] (2006)  (19 Feb  25 Feb 2006)Thick subcategories of triangulated categories arise in various mathematical areas, for instance in algebraic geometry, in representation theory of groups and algebras, or in stable homotopy theory. The aim of this workshop ... 
0607  Algorithmic Graph Theory
[OWR20067] (2006)  (12 Feb  18 Feb 2006)The main focus of this workshop was on mathematical techniques needed for the development of eﬃcient solutions and algorithms for computationally diﬃcult graph problems. The techniques studied at the workshhop included: ... 
0606  The Arithmetic of Fields
[OWR20066] (2006)  (05 Feb  11 Feb 2006)This is the report on the Oberwolfach workshop The Arithmetic of Fields, held in February 2006. Field Arithmetic (MSC 12E30) is a branch of mathematics concerned with studying the inner structure (orderings, valuations, ... 
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 ... 
0604  Mechanics of Materials
[OWR20064] (2006)  (22 Jan  28 Jan 2006)All uptodate engineering applications of advanced multiphase materials necessitate a concurrent design of materials (including composition, processing routes, microstructures and properties) with structural components. ... 
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 ... 
0602  Mathematical Aspects of General Relativity
[OWR20062] (2006)  (08 Jan  14 Jan 2006)The conference covered mathematical general relativity. The Einstein equations, the key to the subject, can be split into constraints and evolution equations. Many of the talks at the conference concerned the constraints ... 
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 ...
