• 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 ...
