  • The Berlin Mathematics Research Center

    MATH+

    is a cross-institutional and transdisciplinary Cluster of Excellence where researchers will explore and further develop new approaches in application-oriented mathematics. Emphasis is placed on mathematical principles for using ever larger amounts of data in life and material sciences, in energy and network research, and in the humanities and social sciences. The aim is to boost not only scientific progress, but also technological innovation and the comprehensive understanding of social processes.

    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.

GAMM awards Matheon and BMS Alumni

The International Association for Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (GAMM) has awarded two of this year's prizes to BMS and Matheon alumni.
Dr. Friederike Hellwig (HU Berlin) has received the Dr.-Klaus-Körper Prize for her excellent dissertation "Adaptive Discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin Finite-Element-Methods".
Dr. Dietmar Gallistl (formerly HU Berlin, now U Twente (NL)) was awarded the Richard von Mises Prize for his outstanding work on the discretization of elliptic problems of higher order.

Nicolas Perkowski receives Heinz Maier Leibnitz Prize of the DFG

The junior professor at the HU Berlin and research group leader at the MPI for Mathematics in Natural Sciences in Leipzig is honored with the most important German young researchers award in recognition of his scientific achievements in the field of probability theory. His research focuses on singular stochastic partial differential equations, applied stochastic analysis, and robust financial mathematics. Perkowski is BMS alumnus. Together with colleagues, he leads the MATH+ projects AA1-3 and AA4-1. read more »

Cleaning up in Space: Berlin School Team is testing its development on board the ISS on 28.01.

The grand finale of this year's MIT and NASA competition SPHERES will take place on January 28th, 15:00 - and students from the Berlin-based Heinrich-Hertz-Gymnasium will join the event via internet connection in Alicante (Spain). Then astronauts on the ISS will fly the mini satellites programmed by 14 international school teams. Their task this time: Collecting dangerous space junk, which increasingly threatens satellites and other flying space objects such as the ISS. The Berlin participants, supported by the Research Center Matheon and now the new Cluster of Excellence MATH +, have been among the top teams for many years. read more »

Big Show: Award Ceremony of the Digital Math Calendars

More than a million math fans have been participating in the digital math calendars for the past 15 years. Again, more than 130,000 have sweetened this year's Advent season with mathematical puzzles. Now, this year's winners of the competition were honored at a big award show in Berlin. Around 600 children and adolescents came to the auditorium of the TU Berlin on January 25, 2019 to celebrate themselves and mathematics. read more »

American Chemical Society awards Prof. Frank Noé

Frank Noé, Professor at FU Berlin and PI in the recently startet Cluster of Excellence MATH+, receives this year's early career award for theoretical chemistry of the American Chemical Society (ACS). The prize awards his pioneering development of innovative methods for computational biophysics, especially Markov state modeling and its applications to challenging protein simulation and the sampling problem. The ACS Physical Chemistry Division annually sponsors senior and early-career awards in theoretical and experimental physical chemistry that are intended to recognize the most outstanding scientific achievements of members of the division. Frank Noé has an interdisciplinary chair in the departments of Mathematics and Computer Science, Physics and Chemistry. read more »
