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.

Michel Talagrand receives Abel Prize

Matthias Löwe gives a short insight into his work

The French mathematician Michel Talagrand was awarded the prestigious Abel Prize this year, one of the highest honours in mathematics. Over decades, Talagrand has developed a number of methods to better understand random processes. They are also used at the Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Münster.

Start of construction for extraordinary research building

The Bau- und Liegenschaftsbetrieb NRW (BLB NRW) has now started construction work for our Centre of Mathematics Münster. The excavators have taken over the previously undeveloped site between Orléans-Ring and Einsteinstraße. The CMM is being built directly in front of the lecture hall building of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. [de]

What is Eva Viehmann's research about?

An approximation to the research of the 2024 Leibniz Prize winner

Prof. Dr. Eva Viehmann, investigator at Mathematics Münster, has been awarded the Leibniz Prize 2024 for her influential work on arithmetic algebraic geometry as part of the Langlands Programme. Prof. Dr. Urs Hartl, Dr. Stefania Trentin and Dr. João Lourenço, mathematicians from Eva Viehmann's research environment, provide insights into this complex field of research. Their contributions for mathematical laypersons, maths students and the mathematical community allow an approach in several stages.
