Welcome to the MPI MIS

Fundamental questions arising from natural and engineering sciences and economics have always inspired mathematicians to search for new mathematical structures and methods.
The interaction between mathematics and the sciences forms the central point of research at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences (MIS) in Leipzig, represented by the Directors and the Leaders of the Research Groups:

We would like to invite you to an excursion through the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences and the wonderful world of mathematics.
