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.

A mathematical view of the universe

Second edition of the series "Brücken in der Mathematik" was very well attended

The public event on 7 January 2020 dealt with "Geometry, Analysis and Gravity". Prof. Dr. Gerhard Huisken (University of Tübingen) took more than 200 visitors on a journey through 2000 years of the history of science. [de]
