Oberwolfach Repository - Publications of the MFO


Since 2017 the MFO has been operating the Oberwolfach Repository, containing all publications of the MFO. In particular, the Oberwolfach Preprints and the Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach can be better and more clearly managed and presented here. Full-text search is also possible.

Oberwolfach Photo Collection (OPC)


The Oberwolfach Photo Collection is based on Prof. Konrad Jacobs' (Erlangen) large collection of photographs of mathematicians from all over the world. In the 1950's Prof. Jacobs started to make copies of the photographs he had taken and donated these copies to the MFO. In 2005 he transferred his whole collection completely with all rights to the MFO. The collection also contains a lot of copies of pictures taken by Prof. George M. Bergman (Berkeley). Since about 1998 we take photos from every single group visiting Oberwolfach and so try to continue this excellent collection.

Oberwolfach Digital Archive (ODA)


As a service to the mathematical community and a further contribution to the scientific work of Oberwolfach, the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach created the Oberwolfach Digital Archive (ODA). The ODA comprises digitised documents and results of the Oberwolfach Workshops dating as far back as 1944.

Oberwolfach Leibniz Archive for Mathematics (OLAM)

OLAM provides a sustainable closed digital archive for the preservation of mathematical e-journals. The so-called “dark archive” ensures the long-term survival of scholary content, with access provided to the public only when a “trigger event” occurs.

MaRDI Consortium


MaRDI is one of several consortia within the initiative "Nationale Forschungsdateninfrastruktur" (NFDI, National Research Data Infrastructure) which is intended to systematically make valuable data stocks from science and research accessible for sustainable use.
