Mathematics Münster

Dynamics - Geometry - Structure

Mathematics is a key technology for scientific and economic progress. New discoveries in mathematics are not only interesting in themselves, but they often lead to unexpected breakthroughs in other sciences as well.

We will tackle fundamentally important mathematical problems, viewing mathematics as an organic whole with countless interactions. The research in our Cluster of Excellence "Mathematics Münster" is unified by three major approaches: focusing on the underlying structure of a given problem, taking the geometric viewpoint and studying the relevant dynamics of group or semigroup actions. The theories which we will build will not only solve the problems under consideration but also many others of a similar nature; these theories will also raise exciting new questions.

Thomas Nikolaus is a new spokesperson for the Cluster of Excellence “Mathematics Münster”

Prof. Thomas Nikolaus was elected as a new spokesperson for our Cluster of Excellence last week. He succeeds Prof. Christopher Deninger, who held the position jointly with Prof. Mario Ohlberger since the Cluster began its work in 2019. Mario Ohlberger continues in the position. "I’m delighted to be able to contribute to the successful development of Mathematics Münster from now on as spokesperson," said Thomas Nikolaus after being voted into office, a procedure which took place at the General Assembly of all Cluster members.
