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.

Spanish Science award for María Ángeles García-Ferrero

María Ángeles García-Ferrero, postdoc in the research group “Rigidity and Flexibility in PDEs” is one of the laureates of this year’s Vicent Caselles Award. This Spanish Science award goes to outstanding young mathematicians recognizing creativity and originality of their scientific results. María Ángeles is especially honored for her PhD thesis studying geometric problems in partial differential equations and the development of global approximation theorems to answer them.

Yue Ren wins Future Leaders Fellowship and will start a research project at Swansea University

A big career step opens for our Dr. Yue Ren, postdoc in the Nonlinear Algebra group. He is one of the laureates of this year’s Future Leaders Fellowship program awarded by UK Research and Innovation. This cross-UK scheme supports early career researchers and innovators with outstanding potential. From January 2020, Yue Ren will conduct a research project “Computational tropical geometry and its applications” at the Swansea University.
