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 episode of "On a Tangent"

with Mert Bastug

In the second episode of our Mathematics Münster podcast "On A Tangent", host Simone Ramello meets Mert Bastug, a doctoral researcher in PDEs and Calculus of Variations. They talk about Mert’s first meeting with mathematics, how it is possible to understand materials with the help of PDEs, and where they might take us next.

New Visiting Scholar: Volker Schlue

We welcome Dr. Volker Schlue as a Visiting Scholar (on leave from the University of Melbourne). His stay is funded by the Humboldt Foundation. Volker is a promising mathematician in general relativity and nonlinear wave equations. He joined our Cluster in April 2024. During his extended stay at our Cluster until February 2025, he will contribute actively to all activities in the research group of Prof. Gustav Holzegel.

New video series: MM Conversations

Early career researchers in dialogue

The final video of "MM Conversations", filmed at the Mathematics Müsnter Mid-term Conference 2024, is now online. The interview by Rodrigo Bazaes, postdoctoral researcher at our Cluster, with Alice Guionnet from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon can be viewed from today.
