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:

Wörter sind kein Zufall

Für viele Begriffe werden auch in nicht-verwandten Sprachen bestimmte Laute bevorzugt oder vermieden. Ein internationales Team, an dem Forscher der Max-Planck-Institute für Mathematik in den Naturwissenschaften und für Menschheitsgeschichte sowie der Universität Leipzig beteiligt waren, zeigt dies in einer umfassenden Analyse.
