What does mathematics have to do with sustainable energy supply, individualized medicine, and the analysis of social processes? Mathematics is a key discipline that enables decisive advances in these and other future issues driven by increasing complexity and digitalization. The Berlin Mathematics Research Center MATH+, which is a joint Cluster of Excellence of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Technische Universität Berlin and also conceptually and structurally integrates the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastic (WIAS) and Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB), is taking up the task of developing the necessary mathematic strategies and methods.
On May 14, 2019, MATH+ will officially kick off its work with a grand opening ceremony. The event will be held in English. Advance registration is requested. To attend, please send an email to the applicable email address listed below. A welcome address will be given by the spokesperson for the cluster, Martin Skutella, a professor at Technische Universität Berlin. The keynote address will be given by Professor Günter M. Ziegler, the president of Freie Universität Berlin. Researchers from MATH+ will then present topics and findings from their research in different fields of application.
MATH+ will address an entire spectrum of research ranging from pure mathematical abstraction to the solution of problems stemming from different technologies, the life sciences, sociology, and the humanities.
