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.

Virtual edition of “Brücken in der Mathematik”

Online lecture on paradoxical phenomena in mathematics on 29 September

The world - especially the world of mathematics - is full of mysteries. Particularly interesting and exciting are those that yield unexpected results that run counter to our intuition. Such thought experiments are the subject of the lecture "Paradoxe Phänomene in der Mathematik" which will be held online on 29 September 2020, 7:30 pm, in German. The Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Münster invites everyone who is interested.

MATHRIX Professorship: an important step in an academic career

The deadline for applications for the MATHRIX Professorship is 30 September. Assistant professor Dr. Mira Schedensack held the post until 2019 and, looking back, she says, “The MATHRIX Professorship enabled me, for the first time, to carry out research really independently.”

First retreat of our graduate school MMGS

The first retreat of our graduate school MMGS recently took place in Duisburg. The event contributes to networking among MMGS members - especially during the Covid 19 pandemic. The retreat focused on the participants' personal future planning.
