Matheon makes maths for...
Life SciencesProgress 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. [...]
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 application areas Life Sciences, Networks, Energy and Materials, Electronic and Photonic devices 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.
On thursday, June 30th, nearly 200 pupils are expected to start in this year’s math-run MATHEathlON in the Freizeitzentrum FEZ in Berlin-Köpenick. They compete in running and solving little mathematical problems developed by the Research Center Matheon. For the second time, this contest is the highlight of the final ceremony of the project „Wir rechnen zusammen“ („We calculate together“). It starts at 8:30 a.m. at the stage near the water basin. The entrance of FEZ is located at Straße zum FEZ 2 in Berlin-Köpenick. [...]
The Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW) elected Prof. Dr. Gitta Kutyniok as new member. She received her certificate of membership during the ceremony on the occasion of the Leibniztag of the Academy on June 11th, 2016. The Einstein Professor of Applied Functional Analysis teaches and conducts research at the Technical University Berlin and at the Research Center Matheon. She is only the fifth woman in the Mathematics and Natural Sciences class oft he BBAW and currently the youngest member there. [...]
During this year's Long Night of Sciences on June 11th, you can find Matheon at the information booth of the Collaborative Research Centre "CRC 1114 – Scaling Cascades in Complex Systems" at the FU Berlin, Math building, Arnimallee 6, Berlin-Dahlem. As part of the CRC 1114, mathematicians explore for example weather phenomena, earthquakes and molecules together with geologists, medical doctors and scientists from other disciplines.
Since June 1st, 2016 Prof. Martin Skutella (TU Berlin) is the new Chair of the Research Center Matheon. Deputy Chair is Prof. Christof Schütte (Zuse-Institute Berlin (ZIB), FU Berlin). Executive Board and Chairs were elected by the General Sssembly for a period of four years. [...]
