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.

Online event

Online-Vortrag "Blick in den Körper: Über das Inverse und medizinische Bildgebung"

Virtuelle Ausgabe der öffentlichen Reihe "Brücken in der Mathematik" am 24. März

Moderne Technik erlaubt den Blick in den Körper, ohne ihn zu öffnen. Es wird sozusagen berechnet, wie der Mensch von innen aussieht. Um die entsprechenden Technologien zu entwickeln, bedurfte es einiger fundamentaler mathematischer Erkenntnisse. Einen Einblick gibt Prof. Dr. Benedikt Wirth in seinem Online-Vortrag "Blick in den Körper: Über das Inverse und medizinische Bildgebung" am Mittwoch, 24. März 2021, 19:30 Uhr, im Livestream. Alle Interessierten sind herzlich eingeladen.

Virtual Winterschool on Analysis and Applied Mathematics

22-26 February 2021

The scope of the Winterschool is to offer an overview of modern themes in Applied Mathematics, ranging from modeling issues in physics and materials science to their mathematical analysis by means of advanced techniques in the theory of PDEs and the Calculus of Variations. Speakers are Andrea Braides (Rome), Lucia Scardia (Edinburgh) and Ulisse Stefanelli (Vienna).

WWU Research Prize for Prof. Dr. Eugen Hellmann

Eulogy at the digital New Year's Reception

Congratulations, Eugen Hellmann! He has been awarded the WWU Research Prize 2020 for his outstanding achievements. The mathematician, investigator at Mathematics Münter, is one of the world’s leading specialists in the field of arithmetic geometry. The eulogy and can be seen in the recording of the digital New Year's reception [de] on YouTube, as can find a video [de] with insights into Eugen Hellmann's research.
