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.


Mathematics is Everywhere!

1st International Day of Mathematics: public events on 14 March 2020

We celebrate the 1st International Day of Mathematics with two events: In the morning there will be the competition "Tag der Mathematik" [de] for highschool students and teachers, in the afternoon we offer a public event in the City Centre of Münster: Using exciting examples, Prof. Dr. Michael Joachim, Prof. Dr. Arnulf Jentzen and Prof. Dr. Martin Huesmann will show in short lectures (in German!) how mathematics shapes our everyday lives. The event takes place at 16:30 to 18:30 in JO 101, Johannisstr. 4.
