Transforming the World

through Mathematics

Berlin Mathematics Research Center

MATH+, the Berlin Mathematics Research Center, is a cross-institutional and transdisciplinary 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).

Jan 17 – Bhargav Narayanan: Thresholds

19.12.2019
When does a random graph contain a perfect matching? Or a Hamilton cycle? The answers to such problems, referred to as "thresholds", have been the central concern of the study of random discrete structures. A general guess for the location of the threshold for any such problem, based on a very simple computation of what is called the "expectation-threshold", is furnished by some old conjectures of...
