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).



17 December – Valentin Blomer: Analysis on arithmetic manifolds

The talk gives an introduction to the analysis on arithmetic manifolds and presents classical techniques, a variety of applications and new directions in the sup-norm problem. Valentin Blomer is professor of mathematics at the University of Bonn. His area of research is analytic number theory and automorphic forms.

3 December – Marcos Mariño: A deal with the devil: making sense of divergent series

According to a well-known dictum of Niels Henrik Abel, divergent series are the devil’s invention. In spite of that (or because of that), they appear in many different situations in physics and mathematics. This talk will first review some important examples of divergent series and then show that there is a hidden and rich mathematical structure associated to them. Marcos Mariño is a Professor of...



MATH+ Dissertation Award 2020

In cooperation with the Einstein Foundation Berlin, the Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) of the Cluster of Excellence MATH+ awards up to three annual prizes for outstanding dissertations to BMS graduates. We are delighted to award the first MATH+ Dissertation Awards 2020 for their excellent theses to Dr. Leon Sering and Dr. Josué Tonelli Cueto.

MATH+ Presentation at the Humboldt Forum: “Improving the World with Mathematics?”

As part of the science series MitWissenschaft, the Cluster of Excellence MATH+ presented selected research topics in the sold-out lecture hall of the Humboldt Forum on 28 October 2021. Under the heading “Improving the world with mathematics? New solutions for the problems of an increasingly complex world”, the audience listened to short presentations. The recording is now available.

New BMS Student Representatives

Each year in November, a new team of BMS student representatives is elected for one year. We are delighted to announce this year’s new team of BMS student representatives: Aizhan Issagal, Coco Bögel, Dante Luber, Lenny Leass, Margarita Kostre, and Marwa Zainelabdeen.
