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).


MATH+ Visiting Scholar Alex Blumenthal and Maximilian Engel (FU)

MATH+ Visiting Scholar Alex Blumenthal at FU Berlin, hosted by Maximilian Engel

MATH+ welcomes Alex Blumenthal from the Georgia Institute of Technology (USA) to join our community as a MATH+ Visiting Scholar hosted by Junior Research Group Leader Maximilian Engel at Freie Universität Berlin. Blumenthal is a world-leading expert on ergodic theory and random dynamical systems. He will stay at the FU Berlin from 22 May to 15 July 2023.



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.

12 May – Anja Schlömerkemper: Various Structures in Mathematics of Materials

This event will be the 30th edition of the MATH+ Kovalevskaya Colloquium, and we will come together to celebrate the International Women in Mathematics Day on 12 May in collaboration with CRC 1114. In many materials, interesting structures can be observed on various scales. Modeling and investigation of their properties results in challenging mathematical problems, which involve for instance mini...
