Several new snapshots available

MFO has published several new "Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach". Visit our publication server to view the most recent articles.

"Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach" explain mathematical problems and ideas of present relevance 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, although varying in difficulty. The project is designed to promote the understanding and appreciation of modern mathematics and mathematical research in the interested public world-wide. 

The snapshots are written by participants of the scientific program at the MFO, who volunteer to explain an important aspect of their research. A team of editors selects the manuscripts that are most suitable for a broad readership and assists the authors in communicating complicated matters to a broad audience. The MFO publishes the snapshots for free download under a Creative Commons license.

Since the beginning of the project in 2014 far more than 100 snapshots touching a variety of research fields in mathematics have been published. Visit our publication server to browse through all of them. More information on the project can be found at
