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).



14 January – Jürgen Jost: Mathematics for exploring chemical space

Chemical space, as of today, consists of more than 20 million substances linked by more than 40 million reactions. In an ongoing project, Jost is developing mathematical tools for analyzing this structure and its dynamics. Jürgen Jost has been director and permanent member of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig since 1996.



MATH+ and the BMS wish you happy holidays and a happy new year! The office will remain closed from 23 December until 03 January!
