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.

New Münster Research Fellow: Claude Warnick

We welcome Dr Claude Warnick (University of Cambridge) as a Münster Research Fellow. He is mainly known for his papers on asymptotically anti-de Sitter space times and developing a rigorous theory of quasinormal modes for a large class of black hole spacetimes. During his stay in Münster from 1 October to 31 December 2021, he will collaborate with Prof. Dr. Gustav Holzegel and other researchers of the Cluster.

Current funding atlas: good results for University of Münster

The recently published "DFG Förderatlas 2021" shows that the University of Münster is strong in attracting third-party funding. Regarding the subject of mathematics, the University of Münster ranks fourth among German universities, behind University of Bonn, TU Berlin and University of Bielefeld. The current edition of the "Förderatlas" covers the period from 2017 to 2019. [de]
