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).

PhD Student Position (m/f/d) @ HU Berlin

We are inviting applications of candidates with excellent knowledge in the fields of optimization and machine learning for this MATH+ PhD student position at Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. The position belongs to the MATH+ Project EF1-23 “On a Frank-Wolfe Approach for Abs-Smooth Optimization”, which is part of the MATH+ Emerging Field (EF1) "Extracting Dynamical Laws from Complex Data".



27 January – Bruno Vallette: Why higher structures?

Over the past 50 years, higher algebraic structures have gradually been appearing in algebra, geometry, topology, and mathematical physics. hile classical structures, like associative, commutative or Lie algebras, are often defined by one operation, these new higher structures, like homotopy algebras or higher categories, are often made up of infinite series of coherent structural operations. Bru...

13 January – Robert Lazarsfeld: How irrational is an irrational variety?

Lazarsfeld will survey a body of work concerned with a complementary question, namely measuring and controlling “how irrational” a non-rational variety might be. Robert Kendall Lazarsfeld currently serves as distinguished professor at the Stony Brook University. His research focuses on geometrically oriented algebraic geometry.
