Oberwolfach and Imaginary: Snapshots of modern mathematics

Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach explain mathematical problems and ideas in an accessible and understandable way. They provide exciting insights into current topics of the mathematical community for everyone who is interested in modern mathematics. The snapshots are written by participants of the scientific program at Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, who volunteer to explain an important aspect of their research.
The project is part of "Oberwolfach meets IMAGINARY" funded by the Klaus Tschira foundation.
