Research in Pairs
The focus of "Research in Pairs" (RiP) is to bring together small groups of researchers to carry out joint research in the stimulating atmosphere of the Oberwolfach Institute. Projects from all areas of mathematics can be supported by this programme, in particular, interdisciplinary cooperation is encouraged.
The stay of a research "pair", which means at least two and at most four people, can last between two weeks and three months. It is required that not all come from the same place. The Institute will provide office space, accommodation (full board and lodging), and an allowance for incidental expenses. Travel expenses can be reimbursed only in exceptional cases.
Applications can be made any time, preferably around six months before the planned stay. Due to many applications for the months May - September we recommend to consider also other periods for your stay, if possible. Decision making takes usually about six weeks.
Applicants should submit a short description (in English) of the joint project, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and dates for the proposed visit.
Please also include the classification (primary and secondary), according to the latest Mathematics Subject Classification Scheme used by MathSciNet and Zentralblatt, as well as according to the scheme of the International Mathematical Union (1995):
- 1 Logic
- 2 Algebra
- 3 Number Theory
- 4 Geometry
- 5 Topology
- 6 Algebraic Geometry
- 7 Lie Groups and Representations
- 8 Real and Complex Analysis
- 9 Operator Algebras and Functional Analysis
- 10 Probability and Statistics
- 11 Partial Differential Equations
- 12 Ordinary Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems
- 13 Mathematical Physics
- 14 Combinatorics
- 15 Mathematical Aspects of Computer Science
- 16 Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing
- 17 Applications of Mathematics in the Sciences
- 18 Teaching and Popularization of Mathematics
- 19 History of Mathematics
Please note that, starting in 2007, the MFO publishes the series Oberwolfach Preprints (OWP), which mainly contains research results related to a longer stay in Oberwolfach. In particular, this concerns the RiP-Programme.
We are grateful to the Volkswagen-Stiftung which supported the RiP-Programme from 1995 to 2000. Since 2001, it is financed within the regular budget of the MFO.
