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).


DFG Funds New “Collaborative Research Centres“ in Mathematics

DFG Funds New “Collaborative Research Centre“ in Mathematics, Hosted by TU Berlin, Headed by MATH+ Distinguished Fellow Peter K. Friz

We are delighted to share that the German Research Foundation has approved a new CRS in mathematics titled "Rough Analysis, Stochastic Dynamics and Related Fields," hosted by TU Berlin. The spokesperson is the Einstein Professor of Mathematics, Peter K. Friz (TU Berlin/WIAS). The spokesperson team also includes Nicolas Perkowski (FU Berlin) and Ulrich Horst (HU Berlin).
DFG-Approval of Two Research Training Groups (RTG) with MATH+/BMS Scientists as Leaders

DFG Approved Two Research Training Groups (RTG) Headed by MATH+ Scientists

We are thrilled to announce that the German Research Foundation (DFG) has approved two Research Training Groups with MATH+ scientists as group leaders: A new one in Algebraic Geometry with Gavril Farkas (HU Berlin) as co-spokesperson, and a second funding period for the IRTG Berlin-Oxford on Stochastic Analysis, headed by Peter Bank (TU Berlin).

14 June – Heather Harrington: Topology Data Analysis for Multiscale Biology

Heather Harrington, an MPI Director and Professor of Mathematics, will review the main tools in topological data analysis, illustrating how single and multi-parameter persistent homology provide insights into biological systems. She leads the Algebraic Systems Biology group, which combines algebra, geometry, topology, and combinatorics with dynamical systems and biological data.
