Research in MATH+ is multifaceted and comprises project-oriented, and project-independent mathematics research. The project-oriented research in MATH+ is structured into Application Areas (AA), Emerging Fields (EF), and Transfer Units (TrU), and focuses on application-oriented mathematics. On the other hand, the research activities in the eight mathematical research areas in MATH+ are not restricted to the classical form of a project and aim at the progression in mathematics itself.
The MATH+ Application Areas are tailored toward mathematical research in interdisciplinary application fields. They support cross-institution research projects that involve mathematicians as well as leading experts of the respective field of application. With the beginning of 2019, the following four Application Areas have taken up their activity:
The Emerging Fields are devoted to pioneering interdisciplinary research in new fields including the social sciences and humanities. Since January 2019, research activities in the following five Emerging Fields started:
The present mathematical research areas are:
MATH+ Transition Projects enable the transfer of promising research topics, e.g. from the Einstein Center for Mathematics ECMath, into the new context of MATH+. Transition Projects are short-term projects with the primary aim of re-bundling research activities and possibly integrating them into the MATH+ research agenda.
