Jan 17 – Bhargav Narayanan: Thresholds

When does a random graph contain a perfect matching? Or a Hamilton cycle? The answers to such problems, referred to as "thresholds", have been the central concern of the study of random discrete structures. A general guess for the location of the threshold for any such problem, based on a very simple computation of what is called the "expectation-threshold", is furnished by some old conjectures of...

Jan 9 – First Hot Topic Talk

The MATH+ Activity Group „Mathematics of Data Science” is presenting the first Hot Topic Talk on 9th January 2020: Erik Vanden-Eijnden will speak about “Trainability and accuracy of artificial neural networks”. The talk will take place at 4:15 pm at the ZIB Lecture Hall, Takustr. 7 in Berlin-Dahlem!

Dec 13 – Math+ Day

On 13th December 2019, the first MATH+ Day will take place in Urania Berlin. The research activities in the Cluster of Excellence MATH+ are manifold. With the annual MATH+ Day we want to provide an information and networking opportunity for all members. Here, all projects can present themselves and all MATH+ members can learn about ongoing research activities. By getting to know what’s going on in...

Nov 29 – Barbara Zwicknagl: Mathematical variations on pattern formation in smart materials

In her talk, Barbara Zwicknagl will discuss energy-driven pattern formation in materials by the example of shape memory alloys, which constitute a fascinating class of smart materials. These materials "remember" their original shape: Even if they are deformed at low temperature they return to their original memorized shape when heated above a critical temperature. This effect is based on a solid-s...

AI / Trust in PC / 3D Printing – Meet MATH+ Research @ Urania Berlin

In the lecture series MATHINSIDE, scientists from the Cluster of Excellence MATH+ give exciting insights into their research work and the application areas of mathematics. MATHInside is especially aimed at pupils of 10th grade and higher. The program today: Machine Learning and AI / Do you still trust in your PC? / Mathematical Basics of 3D Printing

Breaking the Walls of Ignorance

On November 18 and 19, an international Colloquium celebrates Rupert Klein’s 60th Birthday at Zuse Institute Berlin. Congratulations! Rupert Klein is Professor for Numerical Fluid Mechanics at FU Berlin and member of the MATH+ Board. His research interests are in the fields of atmosphere flows, combustion gas dynamics, multi-scale analysis and numerical fluid mechanics.
