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.

Making research easy to understand

Informing the public, in an easy-to-understand way, about developments and results in the area of research has long been an integral part of knowledge transfer at universities, including the University of Münster. The current issue of the university newspaper wissenIleben deals with faculties and multipliers who are themselves undertaking science communication - for example our Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Münster.
