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 DFG 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).



22 Jan – Rolf Krause: Scales of knowledge

Complex coupled systems arise in medicine, science and engineering. Mathematically, these can be nonlinear coupled systems of PDEs or the nonconvex minimization problems found in deep learning. In this talk, we show how multi-scale approaches give a mathematical technique for accurate and efficient simulation of complex systems. Rolf Krause holds a chair of advanced scientific computing in the Fa...

15 Jan – Harald Helfgott: Expander graphs in number theory: the prime divisibility graph

An expander graph may be defined in any of several ways: in terms of boundaries of vertex sets, or in terms of eigenvalues of the graph Laplacian, or by random walks... Expander graphs have become a central object of study in discrete mathematics. Helfgott will discuss a graph that encodes the divisibility properties of integers by primes. Harald Helfgott is a Humboldt Professor at the University...
