Transforming the World

through Mathematics

Berlin Mathematics Research Center

MATH+, the Berlin Mathematics Research Center, is a cross-institutional and interdisciplinary Cluster of Excellence. It sets out to explore and further develop new approaches in application-oriented mathematics. Emphasis is placed on mathematical principles for using ever larger amounts of data in life and material sciences, in energy and network research, and in the humanities and social sciences.


MATH+ is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) under Germany´s Excellence Strategy (EXC-2046/1, project ID 390685689) for a first period of seven years since January 2019. It is a joint project of the three major universities in Berlin – Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Technische Universität Berlin – as well as the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) and the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB). MATH+ continues the success stories of the renowned Research Center Matheon and the Excellence-Graduate School Berlin Mathematical School (BMS).

First MATH+ Distinguished Fellow: Gavril Farkas (HU Berlin)

MATH+ has recently launched the MATH+ Distinguished Fellowship Program to recognize outstanding contributions to the mathematical sciences and to support the work of world-leading mathematicians in Berlin. Prof. Dr. Gavril Farkas, Professor of Algebraic Geometry at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, will be the first MATH+ Distinguished Fellow.



1 July – Irit Dinur: P, NP, and Probabilistically Checkable Proofs

Dinur will talk about the PCP theorem and its many applications, and end by touching upon a surprising recent connection between PCPs and the so-called high-dimensional expanders, which are objects that come from pure math. The talk is also part of the Millennium Festival: Irit Dveer Dinur is a full professor at the Weizmann Institute of...

Celebrating Math

After too long a break, we invite you to celebrate Math with the MATH+ community. As part of the German-wide event series "The 7 Greatest Mathematical Adventures", we present a diverse program of talks and activities around the famous Millennium Prize Problem “P versus NP”.
