0804  Buildings: Interactions with Algebra and Geometry
[OWR20083] (2008)  (20 Jan  26 Jan 2008)The focus of the conference was on buildings and their applications. Buildings are combinatorial structures (metric cell complexes) which may be viewed as simultaneous generalizations of trees and projective spaces. There ... 
0834  C*Algebras
[OWR200837] (2008)  (17 Aug  23 Aug 2008)The theory of C*algebras plays a major role in many areas of modern mathematics, like Noncommutative Geometry, Dynamical Systems, Harmonic Analysis, and Topology, to name a few. The aim of the conference “C*algebras” ... 
0828  Calculus of Variations
[OWR200831] (2008)  (06 Jul  12 Jul 2008)The Calculus of Variations is at the same time a classical subject, with longstanding open questions which have generated exciting discoveries in recent decades, and a modern subject in which new types of questions arise, ... 
0824  Classical Algebraic Geometry
[OWR200826] (2008)  (08 Jun  14 Jun 2008)Algebraic geometry studies properties of specific algebraic varieties, on the one hand, and moduli spaces of all varieties of fixed topological type on the other hand. Of special importance is the moduli space of curves, ... 
0846  Combinatorial Optimization
[OWR200851] (2008)  (09 Nov  15 Nov 2008)The field of Combinatorial Optimization brings together techniques from a variety of mathematical disciplines to study optimization problems over discrete structures. The field is very active and continues to make strong ... 
0802  Combinatorics
[OWR20081] (2008)  (06 Jan  12 Jan 2008)This is the report on the Oberwolfach workshop on Combinatorics, held 6–12 January 2008. Combinatorics is a branch of mathematics studying families of mainly, but not exclusively discrete (i.e. finite or countable) structures, ... 
0827a  Computational Algebraic Topology
[OWR200829] (2008)  (29 Jun  05 Jul 2008)Computational algebraic topology is a dynamic field of mathematics, which has close connections to the classical algebraic topology, combinatorial algebraic topology, theory of algorithms, as well as an abundance of ... 
0839  Discrete Geometry
[OWR200844] (2008)  (21 Sep  27 Sep 2008)A number of remarkable recent developments in many branches of discrete geometry have been presented at the workshop, some of them demonstrating strong interactions with other fields of mathematics (such as harmonic analysis ... 
0813  Disordered Systems: Random Schrödinger Operators and Random Matrices
[OWR200816] (2008)  (23 Mar  29 Mar 2008)The spectral analysis of random operators plays a central role for the understanding of quantum systems with disorder. Two distinct types of ensembles are of particular significance: Random Schrödinger operators and random ... 
0851  Dynamics of Patterns
[OWR200857] (2008)  (14 Dec  20 Dec 2008)This workshop focused on the dynamics of nonlinear waves and spatiotemporal patterns, which arise in functional and partial differential equations. Among the outstanding problems in this area are the dynamical selection ... 
0837  Geometric Group Theory, Hyperbolic Dynamics and Symplectic Geometry
[OWR200842] (2008)  (07 Sep  13 Sep 2008)The workshop ”Geometric Group Theory, Hyperbolic Dynamics and Symplectic Geometry” brought together experts in these different but close and interactive mathematical directions. The activities included talks by world renown ... 
0831  Geometrie
[OWR200834] (2008)  (27 Jul  02 Aug 2008)The program of this meeting covered a wide range of of recent developments in geometry such as geometric flows, metric geometry, positively and negatively curved manifolds and dynamics of quasiconformal maps. 
0840  Geometry and Arithmetic around Hypergeometric Functions
[OWR200845] (2008)  (28 Sep  04 Oct 2008)Hypergeometric functions form a classical subject of Mathematics providing an interesting link between apparently quite different fields of research like differential equations, group theory, differential geometry, physics, ... 
0817  Groups and Geometries
[OWR200820] (2008)  (20 Apr  26 Apr 2008)This was one of series of Oberwolfach workshops on Groups and Geometries which has taken place every 3 years for some time. There were three main interrelated themes: buildings and their relationship with algebraic groups; ... 
0822  History of Mathematics of the Early 20th Century: The Role of Transition
[OWR200824] (2008)  (25 May  31 May 2008)This conference provided a focused venue to investigate the history of mathematics during a particularly active time in the discipline, that is, roughly between the turn of the 20th century and 1950. Using the lens of ... 
0850  Hyperbolic Conservation Laws
[OWR200856] (2008)  (07 Dec  13 Dec 2008)The subject of this workshop concerned the analysis and numerical investigation of hyperbolic systems. In particular the interactions between theoretical and numerical contributions were in the focus of this meeting. Many ... 
0845a  Infinite Dimensional Random Dynamical Systems and Their Applications
[OWR200850] (2008)  (02 Nov  08 Nov 2008)The theory of infinite dimensional random dynamical systems shares many of the concepts and results for finite dimensional random dynamical systems, but with considerably more technical complications. Many examples are ... 
0849  Interplay of Analysis and Probability in Physics
[OWR200855] (2008)  (30 Nov  06 Dec 2008)It is widely recognised that stochastic effects need to be included in the modelling of many physical systems, while reciprocally the sciences provide a challenging potential area of application of stochastic processes. ... 
0819  Invariants in LowDimensional Topology
[OWR200822] (2008)  (04 May  10 May 2008)The complex set of topics in that workshop originates from the classical algebraic low–dimensional topology and the influx of new invariants that began with the Jones polynomial in the 1980’s, that continued with the recent ...
