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 night full of mathematics

2 December 2022, via Zoom

Scientists from our Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Münster, the "Hausdorff Center for Mathematics" (Bonn) and "MATH+" (Berlin) will show in digital workshops, lectures, a magic show and a round table on diversity of educational paths the fascination of mathematics - from 3 pm to midnight.

Cluster postdoc successfully publishes in the top journal "Inventiones mathematicae"

Interview with Dr. Konstantinos Zemas

The journal "Inventiones mathematicae" is considered a top journal in the mathematical community. This year, the journal published a paper by postdoc Dr. Konstantinos Zemas and his PhD supervisor Prof. Dr. Stephan Luckhaus (University of Leipzig). In this interview, Konstantinos talks about the content of the paper, and how the topic and his research have developed since the publication.

WDR-"Zeitzeichen": Interview mit Anna Siffert zu Ada Lovelace

Sie gilt als Pionierin der Informatik: Die Mathematikerin Ada Lovelace schreibt im 19. Jahrhundert das erste Programm für eine geplante Rechenmaschine - lange bevor es Computer gibt. Anlässlich ihres Todestages am 27. November 1852 hat der WDR eine Folge der Reihe "Zeitzeichen" über ihr Leben veröffentlicht. In dem Beitrag kommt Prof. Dr. Anna Siffert, Professorin an unserem Exzellenzcluster, zu Wort und berichtet über unser Ada Lovelace-Programm zur Förderung exzellenter Mathematik-Doktorandinnen.

Group Actions: Dynamics, Measure, Topology

28 Nov - 2 Dec 2022

This meeting will focus on the measurable and topological dynamics of group actions, with emphasis on the cross-pollination of themes and techniques that have been driving these subjects in novel directions over the last few years, ranging in flavour from probability, symbolic dynamics, and combinatorics to Lie groups, representation theory, and operator algebras, and including new types of interactions at the boundary of measure and topology themselves.
