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.

Start for the ODYCCEUS Podcast - Social Networks as a Crisis Barometer (07.05.21)

The ODYCCEUS research project will soon reach its conclusion as part of the Online Conference - The Computational Analysis of Cultural Conflict. Until then, the project's scientists will provide insights into their research around social processes and opinion dynamics in a regular podcast series (unfortunately only available in German).

In the first episode, leading researcher Eckehard Olbrich explains the goals of the project and the polarizing effect of tweets and retweets.

COVID-19 Data Analysis with a special report for Europe (05.05.2021)

It has been more than a year since the inception of our regular COVID-19 Data Analysis Update, and while updates now only occur every week, it remains relevant today. In order to properly assess the current situation, Hoang Duc Luu and Jürgen Jost have written a special report for the pandemic situation in Europe. The report details the statistical basis for the wave-like resurgence of infection numbers, goes into the issues of estimating the number of recovered individuals, and explains age group-dependent dynamics.
