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.

25 years of MiS - Eberhard-Zeidler-Library (12.10.2021)

The latest addition to our 25 years of MiS column shines the spotlight on our ever popular library and the plethora of services it offers. Take a look at some facts and figures and watch a short slideshow of some impression of the libary since its dedication as the Eberhard-Zeidler-Library in 2017.

Manneken Pis-thagoras (04.10.2021)

For the first time in his life, on September 24th, 2021, the famous Manneken Pis was dressed as a mathematician. Inspired by the "father of geometry" Pythagoras, a team of researchers with participation of our postdoc Mima Stanojkovski has created this special suit for Brussel's best-known icon.

Regular Lectures (Winter 2021/2022)

Important information

  • Due to the pandemic, it is mandatory to register for a lecture series before attending one of the lectures. For this registration, we simply use the mailing list for the lecture series. So, if you plan to attend a lecture (series), please subscribe the mailing list which is linked below the respective lecture.
  • Obviously, this rule is only valid for in-person lectures. However, even for the online events it might be a good idea to subscribe. This way, you will receive the information on how to attend the online meetings.
