Transforming the World

through Mathematics



27-30 March – Logic, Limits, Contingency: A Critical Digital “Spring School”

In the current Winter Semester 2022/23, MATH+ is collaborating with the Cluster of Excellence “Temporal Communities” in the Thematic Einstein Forum (TEF) on “Scales of Temporality: Modeling Time and Predictability in the Literary and Mathematical Sciences.” As a concluding activity, a Spring School will be offered from 27-30 March 2023. Welcome to join!

14. März – MATHINSIDE am Pi Day 2023

In der Vortragsreihe MATHINSIDE geben Wissenschaftler*innen des Exzellenzclusters MATH+ spannende Einblicke in ihre Forschungsarbeit und in die Anwendungsgebiete der Mathematik. Das Vortragsprogramm eignet sich hervorragend als Ausflugsziel für Schulklassen und -kurse ab Klassenstufe 10. Am 14.03.2023 gibt es Vorträge von den MATH+ Forschern Wolfgang König, Max Fackeldey und Niels Lindner.

10 February – Stephen Wright: Optimization in Data Science

In this talk, Wright will discuss how formulation and algorithmic tools from optimization have been used to address problems in computational statistics, machine learning, and AI. Stephen J. Wright holds the George B. Dantzig Professorship, the Sheldon Lubar Chair, and the Amar and Balinder Sohi Professorship of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison

27 January – Bruno Vallette: Why higher structures?

Over the past 50 years, higher algebraic structures have gradually been appearing in algebra, geometry, topology, and mathematical physics. hile classical structures, like associative, commutative or Lie algebras, are often defined by one operation, these new higher structures, like homotopy algebras or higher categories, are often made up of infinite series of coherent structural operations. Bru...

13 January – Robert Lazarsfeld: How irrational is an irrational variety?

Lazarsfeld will survey a body of work concerned with a complementary question, namely measuring and controlling “how irrational” a non-rational variety might be. Robert Kendall Lazarsfeld currently serves as distinguished professor at the Stony Brook University. His research focuses on geometrically oriented algebraic geometry.
