• Photonic Crystals: Mathematical Analysis and Numerical Approximation 

      [OWS-42] Dörfler, Willy; Lechleiter, Armin; Plum, Michael; Schneider, Guido; Wieners, Christian (Birkhäuser Basel, 2011)
      This volume collects a series of lectures which provide an introduction to the mathematical background needed for the modeling and simulation of light, in particular in periodic media, and for its applications in optical ...
    • Positional Games 

      [OWS-44] Hefetz, Dan; Krivelevich, Michael; Stojaković, Miloš; Szabó, Tibor (Birkhäuser Basel, 2014)
      This text is based on a lecture course given by the authors in the framework of Oberwolfach Seminars at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach in May, 2013. It is intended to serve as a thorough introduction to ...
    • Representations of Finite Groups: Local Cohomology and Support 

      [OWS-43] Benson, David J.; Iyengar, Srikanth B.; Krause, Henning (Birkhäuser Basel, 2012)
      The seminar focuses on a recent solution, by the authors, of a long standing problem concerning the stable module category (of not necessarily finite dimensional representations) of a finite group. The proof draws on ideas ...
    • Topological and Bivariant K-theory 

      [OWS-36] Cuntz, Joachim; Meyer, Ralf; Rosenberg, Jonathan M. (Birkhäuser Basel, 2007)
      Topological K-theory is one of the most important invariants for noncommutative algebras equipped with a suitable topology or bornology. Bott periodicity, homotopy invariance, and various long exact sequences distinguish ...
    • Tropical Algebraic Geometry 

      [OWS-35] Itenberg, Ilia; Mikhalkin, Grigory; Shustin, Eugenii (Birkhäuser Basel, 2007)
      Tropical geometry is algebraic geometry over the semifield of tropical numbers, i.e., the real numbers and negative infinity enhanced with the (max,+)-arithmetics. Geometrically, tropical varieties are much simpler than ...
