  • Margarete Kahn Distinguished Lecture

    The Margarete Kahn Distinguished Lecture features distinguished female mathematicians from all areas of mathematics. The lectures will take place once each term. According to the topic, it will be hosted by one of the five ECMath institutions FU Berlin, HU Berlin, TU Berlin, WIAS, or ZIB. We warmly welcome not only senior scientists, but in particular also students and post-docs. Dr. Bibiane Schönlieb will start on 17 May at 4 pm with the topic: Variational models and partial differential equations for mathematical imaging.

    Clinical Research and Health Care

    Progress in medicine as well as biotechnology more than ever relies on progress in mathematics to complement traditional lab-based approaches.
    In close cooperation with medical doctors, engineers and pharmaceutical industry, Matheon successfully supports e.g. the design of patient-specific therapies, computer assisted surgery planning like implant design and systems biology.

    Metropolitan Infrastructure

    Transportation, communication, energy supply – our society strongly depends on well-functioning infrastructure. Its design has a long term impact, is expensive and its decisions are often almost irreversible.
    Mathematics plays a key role in handling the complexity and optimization of such networks – and Matheon develops mathematical tools for it.

    Optical Technologies

    The great challenges of our modern world lie in the areas health, environment, energy, production or safety. A key factor for scientific advances and innovations in these areas is the generation and manipulation of photons, for example for data transmission, high-resolution microscopy or the processing of industrial materials. Matheon helps to understand and shape the complex new phenomena associated with it.

    Sustainable Energies

    The German Energiewende requires big efforts in developing reliable, efficient and cost-effective systems of regenerative energy supply, not to forget energy efficiency as a whole. Matheon finds solutions for multiple optimization problems in energy distribution, material development and usage, and production processes.

    Geometric Design and Visualization

    There is a growing demand for visualization of complex data – e.g. in medical imaging, production processes or even in mathematics itself.
    Matheon develops fundamentally new mathematical concepts and geometric algorithms to foster image processing, computer graphics – or simply a better understanding of mathematical correlations

    Education and Outreach

    Mathematics is more and more present in everyday life. But when it comes to the public's awareness of it and the way mathematics is taught at schools, there is still improvement needed. Matheon initiates closer cooperation between schools and universities, is engaged in teachers' education, and offers a broad spectrum of activities to communicate the exciting and application-driven aspects of mathematics.

The mission of Matheon is application driven mathematics.

Our scientists develop new methods in modeling, simulation, and optimization for real world processes in all key technology areas. The research covers projects in the areas Clinical Research and Health Care, Metropolitan Infrastructure, Optical Technologies, Sustainable Energies, as well as Geometric Design and Visualization. New methodologies are developed in interdisciplinary cooperation with project partners from industry, economy and science.
Matheon also cooperates with schools and the general public to raise public awareness in the wide applicability of mathematics and to attract new generations of young researchers.

Matheon is a joint research center of the three Berlin universities (Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin) and the mathematical research institutes WIAS (Weierstraß-Institut für Angewandte Analysis und Stochastik) and ZIB (Zuse Institut Berlin).

Research in Matheon is currently supported by the Einstein Foundation Berlin via the Einstein Center ECMath.

It plays a central role in differential and integral calculus, and thus in application-oriented mathematics, for example in growth and decay processes. The number is named after the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler - as well as the Euler lecture, which takes place in Potsdam on May 4th.

26th Euler Lecture in Potsdam

On May 4, 2018, at 2 pm, the 26th Euler-Lecture will take place at the University of Potsdam. In his lecture „Sailing Through Data: Discoveries and Mirages“, Prof. Emmanuel Candès (Stanford University) will give insight into the challenges of large amounts of data for mathematics and statistics. The traditional historical lecture will be held by Prof. Peter Ullrich (Universität Koblenz-Landau). Matheon and ECMath as well as other mathematical institutions of the Berlin-Potsdam-Region cordially invite to the ceremony. read more »

Matheon goes Leipziger Buchmesse & SchülerBIONNALE

From March 15 to 18, Matheon will present its school activities, in particular the Matheon Advent calendar, at the Leipzig Book Fair. In addition, on March 16, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, we will have a booth at the SchülerBIONNALE. Berlin's student fair for occupations related to health and life sciences takes place at Urania. Here, Matheon will show which (career) opportunities mathematics offers in this field and beyond. read more »

ERC-Grant for Matheon scientist Frank Noé

Simulating the binding processes of individual molecules and whole cells is the goal of the research work of Prof. Frank Noé, FU Berlin and Research Center Matheon, which is now funded with an ERC Consolidator Grant. As part of ‘ScaleCell’ he will continue his successful work from the ERC Starting Grant ‘pcCell’. Noé combines methods from mathematics, physics and computer science and will work with his team on developing and applying innovative methods in the field of machine learning. read more »
