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.

The aesthetics of Geometric Analysis

Interview with postdoc Dr. Mario Schulz

Dr. Mario Schulz works in the field of Geometric Analysis. One of his passions is visualising his research topics with 3D models and gif animations to make them more vivid for other mathematicians and for the general public. In the interview, he talks about his career, the aesthetics of his models and his "dream theorem".
