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 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).



2 Mar – Two Mathematical Talks at the BMS Days 2021!

On 1 and 2 March 2021, the Berlin Mathematical School will host its first online BMS Days. On Tuesday, 2 March 2021 all events will be open to the MATH+ community. We are pleased to invite you to attend the following two talks: Gabriele Steidl (TU Berlin) – Motion and Deformation in Mathematical Imaging (11:00 am); Gaëtan Borot (HU Berlin) – Matrix models and counting surfaces: from combinatorics...

19 Feb – Richard E. Schwartz: On the optimal paper Möbius band

In this talk, Schwartz will explain the bounds proved by Halpern and Weaver and then show how to improve the lower bound. He will also explain an approach to getting the sharp bound, which amounts to approximating a paper Möbius band by certain kinds of finite tensegrities. Richard E. Schwartz got his Ph.D. in mathematics from Princeton University in 1991. He is currently the Chancellor Professor...
