  • 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.

Advent Calendar gets started

On 1. December, the Matheon advent calendar invites you to discover the beauty and power of math beyond the subjects covered in school. It offers fascinating insights into recent application oriented mathematical research and into the everyday professional life of mathematicians. The 24 challenging puzzles are aimed at sharp high school students, university students, teachers, and everyone interested. read more »

MATH+Board elected

On October 30, 2018, the first general assembly of the new Cluster of Excellence MATH+ took place. Martin Skutella (TU Berlin) was elected MATH+ Chair, Michael Hintermüller (HU Berlin, WIAS) and Christof Schütte (FU Berlin, ZIB) as Co-Chairs. The other members of the newly elected MATH+ Board are Rupert Klein (FU), Gitta Kutyniok (FU), John M. Sullivan (TU), Caren Tischendorf (HU), Felix Günther (TU) as Postdoc Representative and Michael Rothgang (BMS) as Student Representative. Congratulations to all! read more »

Successfull EU Project

New Methods in modeling, simulation and optimization for real world processes in key technology areas do not only need mathematical knowledge but also other resources such as computing power. The EU-project MSO4SC (Horizon 2020 European Union funding for Research & Innovation) stands for providing such computing resources, cloud as well as HPC, mathematical development frameworks as well as mathematical applications for societal challenges (health, energy, water). As one in ten European project partners, Matheon took part in the first project phase and contributed to the MSO-portal. read more »

Meeting of the Scientific Advisory Board

From October 4th to 5th, Matheon and BMS welcomed their Scientific Advisory Boards. The international renowned scientists have given feedback and new ideas on research and strategic direction. This year, the focus was on the new Cluster of Excellence MATH +, which will be a central element of Berlin’s mathematical research in the future. As it comes to the end of its funding period, Matheon disbanded its Advisory Board and thanked them, handing over little Matheon Buddy Bears as a present. And after that: Party Time... read more »

Mathematics shaping the future

MATH+ The Berlin Mathematics Research Center chosen as new cluster of excellence
Sustainable energy supply, individualized medicine or the analysis of social processes: Technology and society face challenges that are characterized by increasing complexity, driven, among others, by increasing digitization and ever larger amounts of available data. Mathematics plays a key role in mastering all this and taking advantage of the opportunities that come with it. With the Berlin Mathematical Research Center MATH+ we build an interdisciplinary and interinstitutional cluster of excellence that develops new approaches to application-oriented mathematics. This should benefit both diverse applications and mathematics itself. read more »
