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.

Interview with Max Planck Fellow Michael Joswig (22.01.2020)

After joining the Max Planck Fellow Programme in December 2019 Michael Joswig sat down with us to talk about his aspirations as a new group leader, his career leading up to this point and where he sees the future of mathematics.

If you feel inspired by his words or would like to know more about his brainchild, you should register for the 11th Polymake conference on January 24th at our institute.
