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.

Research Spotlight — Putting current research center stage (28.05.2021 | Last update 17.06.2021)

Our institute represents a great variety of research topics that affect current developments both within the natural sciences as well as social and economic life. In our column Research Spotlight MiS scientists are presenting key ideas and giving insights into recent developments of their research in a short video format.

The most recent spotlights discuss singular stochastic partial differential equations and scattering equations from particle physics and are presented by Pavlos Tsatsoulis and Simon Telen.

25 years of MiS - Annual highlights (16.06.2021)

The Max Planck Society unites a broadly diversified scientific universe, each year it presents an report on its activities across the research spectrum. In this episode of our 25 years of MiS column, we present our contributions to the MPG yearbook.
