# DEMAIN - Developing Mathematics in Interaction

In recent years, mathematics has enjoyed an unprecedented growth. Furthermore, its applications have evolved in continuous interaction with the sciences, especially with physics and biology.

Münster University hosts a strong center in Mathematics. At the same time, a multitude of disciplines are represented at the WWU in which mathematical methods are used or needed.

In order to take advantage of that asset, the University of Münster established **DEMAIN**, the research center for DEveloping Mathematics in INteraction. Its mission is to support the interaction of scientists among the different fields of mathematics, and the exchange of mathematicians with researchers from other areas.

**DEMAIN **organizes the weekly common Mathematical Colloquium of all Math Institutes and the semi-annual prestigeous von Neumann Lectures.

It also hosts Workshops and Highlight Events, which include the DMV Gauss Lecture given by Baroness Prof. Dr. Ingrid Daubechies and the celebration of the Honorary Doctorate for Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Gerd Faltings.
