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:

Abdelrhman Elkasapy

* 17.12.1983 -
† 13.01.2017

The Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences mourns Dr. Abdelrhman Elkasapy who did his PhD at our graduate school in 2015 and has been a Postdoc at the MPI since then.
He was a great researcher who loved science, a great friend, and colleague. We will certainly miss him and his philosophy of life to always look at life on the bright side. In his mathematical work and in our memory he will continue to live.
