How to find our institute


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:

Learning to code from the masters: the Macaulay2 Workshop at MPI MiS (2018-07-03)

Last month, our institute hosted a dedicated Macaulay2 workshop organized by former MPI MiS postdoc Eliana Duarte Gelvez (now at the Otto-von-Guericke Universität Magdeburg), together with Heather Harrington (University of Oxford) and Thomas Kahle (Magdeburg). Around 60 participants from around the world took part in the program, which offered them a unique opportunity to develop their coding skills by getting in touch with the experts.

Modellansatz Podcast "Algebraic Geometry" with Eliana Duarte Gelvez (2018-06-28)

Former MPI MiS postdoc Eliana Duarte Gelvez recently met with Gudrun Täter from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology to record an episode of their Modellansatz Podcast. In their inspiring conversation, they discussed the role of algebraic geometry and polynomial equations in applications as well as Eliana’s personal experience as a mathematician.
