1st International Day of Mathematics: public events on 14 March 2020
We celebrate the 1st International Day of Mathematics with two events: In the morning there will be the competition "Tag der Mathematik" [de] for highschool students and teachers, in the afternoon we offer a public event in the City Centre of Münster: Using exciting examples, Prof. Dr. Michael Joachim, Prof. Dr. Arnulf Jentzen and Prof. Dr. Martin Huesmann will show in short lectures (in German!) how mathematics shapes our everyday lives. The event takes place at 16:30 to 18:30 in JO 101, Johannisstr. 4.
Girls go Mathematics! The Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Münster and the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science invite girls to gain insights into university and the work of mathematicians - a short lecture and lunch in the "Mensa" included. Register now! [de]
This week, 79 master’s graduates and 13 candidates who completed their doctorates received their degree certificates. Seven of them wrote their theses in the field of mathematics. We congratulate and wish them all the best for the next steps!
