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.

Congratulations on successful habilitation

Keyan Ghazi-Zahedi successfully defended his habilitation on “Morphological Intelligence: Information-theoretic quantifications of the morphological contribution to intelligence”. Congratulations and our best wishes for the future! Information about his research projects and publications on embodied intelligence and robotics can be found at:
