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.

Number theory meets p-adic representations

13-17 February 2023

The conference will report on various aspects of the rapid developments in Number Theory and Arithmetic in the past years. This concerns in particular smooth representation theory, Iwasawa theory, p-adic geometry and p-adic Hodge theory.

Young Geometric Group Theory XI

13 - 17 February 2023

The eleventh edition of the Young Geometric Group Theory (YGGT) workshop focuses on four mini-courses which present a panoramic overview over some important developments in the research fields. Besides the four main lecture series a number of plenary presentations are organised to broaden the scope of the workshop, and to encourage the participants to explore the boundaries of the subject.

Postdoc receives the Hausdorff Memorial Award

Dr. Lucas Mann was awarded for his doctoral thesis on Poincaré duality and p-adic geometry

Congratulations to Mathematics Münster's postdoc Dr. Lucas Mann! He was awarded the Hausdorff Memorial Award for the best dissertation 2021/2022 in mathematics at the University of Bonn. In his PhD thesis, he proves a Poicaré duality in the case of p-adic geometry. His supervisor Prof. Dr. Peter Scholze was highly impressed by the technical level and the importance beyond the statement to be proved: "This PhD thesis is an extraordinary contribution to p-adic geometry, and it will take some years to digest the statements from this thesis."
