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).

3 November – Workshop “Mathematics and Industry”

Mathematics graduates have many career options and opportunities, which will be presented at this workshop. The event is aimed at students in particular and is free of charge. A few parts of the workshop will be held in German. Registration is necessary.

7 July – Christian Kuehn: Multiscale Dynamics: From Finite to Infinite

In this last talk of the summer semester, Kuehn will first provide an introduction to multiple time scale dynamics and then outline several recent advances for fast-slow PDEs. Christian Kuehn is professor of Mathematics at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). After the talk, the MATH+ community is welcome to join the MATH+ Dissertation Award ceremony and the MATH+ Summer Party at FU Berlin...

9 June – Sven Raum: Operator algebraic group theory

This talk is an invitation to modern aspects of the interaction of group theory and operator algebras. It focuses on simplicity and decomposition results for various algebras arising from groups and their interpretation in representation theoretic terms. Sven Raum is professor for algebra at the University of Potsdam.
