Workshop on Curvature and Global Shape

31 July - 04 August 2023

The purpose of the meeting is to study relationships between local and global invariants in Riemannian Geometry. Our intention is to bring together experts in the field as well as young mathematicians. We plan to schedule talks from the morning of Monday, 31 July, through the afternoon of Friday, 4 August. The program of the Workshop is structured so that beyond the lectures there will be many opportunities for intensive discussions.

C*-Algebras: Tensor Products, Approximation & Classification

17 - 21 July 2023

Since Elliotts classification of approximately finite C*-algebras it is well known that there are strong ties between classification theory and approximation theory for C*-algebras. The full depth of this relation became clear only after the groundbreaking work of Eberhard Kirchberg on tensor products and approximation properties of C*-algebras with astounding applications to (on first sight unrelated) important problems: the Connes embedding problem and the classification of (purely infinite) C*-algebras. The meeting will focus on breathtaking recent advances in these topics due to several young rising stars.

MM Connect with Dr. Dieter Wemmer

"MM Special" about career opportunities for mathematicians in the private sector

Dr. Dieter Wemmer joined us at our series "MM Connect" for early career researchers to present a special talk. He briefly outlined his own career path and, based on his decades of experience as a CFO and CEO of several big companies, offered advice on how to approach making decisions about career paths and which important factors need to be considered.

Young Set Theory Workshop

29 May - 3 June 2023

Set theory is a broad area of mathematics, with many interconnecting themes, and our knowledge is developing rapidly. This international workshop will bring together young mathematicians, providing in depth introductions to various topics in set theory, leading to questions at the forefront of research. Tutorials and talks will be given by both experienced researchers and postdocs, and will be primarily aimed at advanced PhD students and early career researchers.

Video portrait of MATHRIX professor Theresa Simon

In a new series of videos, the Communication and Public Relations department of the University of Münster presents six academics from a variety of disciplines who are either junior professors or who head a group of junior researchers. A video portrait of out investigator Dr. Theresa Simon was recently published. As a junior professor at the Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Münster, she studies patterns in magnets.

In search of model structures for non-equilibrium systems

24 - 28 April 2023

The workshop focuses on the availability, derivation and discovery of variational principles for non-equilibrium systems, in particular, those which connect model structures on different lengths and time scales via microscopic derivations, such as hydrodynamic limits. We bring together physicists and mathematicians to discuss recent progress for specific systems as well as regarding general principles.

Random discrete structures

20 - 24 March 2023

The workshop centers around two topics: "Random graphs and stochastic geometry" and "Branching and mathematical biology". The aim is to provide an opportunity of exchange between the different groups and to attract young researchers to the field. All members of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science are invited to join the "Bridge Plenary Talk" by Remco van der Hofstad (TU Eindhoven) on Thursday, 23 March 2023, 4:30 pm in lecture hall M2, title: "Critical percolation on scale-free random graphs". The conference is part of the Focus Programme "Effective and dynamic behaviour of random structures".

Postdoc receives the Hausdorff Memorial Award

Dr. Lucas Mann was awarded for his doctoral thesis on Poincaré duality and p-adic geometry

Congratulations to Mathematics Münster's postdoc Dr. Lucas Mann! He was awarded the Hausdorff Memorial Award for the best dissertation 2021/2022 in mathematics at the University of Bonn. In his PhD thesis, he proves a Poicaré duality in the case of p-adic geometry. His supervisor Prof. Dr. Peter Scholze was highly impressed by the technical level and the importance beyond the statement to be proved: "This PhD thesis is an extraordinary contribution to p-adic geometry, and it will take some years to digest the statements from this thesis."
