[OWR201527] (2015)  (31 May  06 Jun 2015)This report summarizes the 2015 Oberwolfach meeting on mathematical methods in quantum molecular dynamics. Over decades this field has hosted considerable research activity from different disciplines, such as mathematics, ... 
1516a  Mathematical Theory of Water Waves
[OWR201519] (2015)  (12 Apr  18 Apr 2015)The waterwave problem is the study of the two and threedimensional flow of a perfect fluid bounded above by a free surface subject to the forces of gravity and surface tension. From a mathematical viewpoint, the waterwave ... 
1508b  MiniWorkshop: Coideal Subalgebras of Quantum Groups
[OWR201510] (2015)  (15 Feb  21 Feb 2015)Coideal subalgebras of quantized enveloping algebras appear naturally if one considers quantum group analogs of Lie subalgebras. Examples appear in the theory of quantum integrable systems with boundary and in harmonic ... 
1508c  MiniWorkshop: Deformation Quantization: between formal to strict
[OWR201511] (2015)  (15 Feb  21 Feb 2015)The philosophy of deformation was proposed by Bayen, Flato, Fronsdal, Lichnerowicz, and Sternheimer in the seventies and since then, many developments occurred. Deformation quantization is based on such a philosophy in ...
