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.

Future proof — Mateusz Michałek (19.10.2020)

After countless publications, the composition of an extensive book on Nonlinear Algebra and many fruitful mathematical discussions Mateusz Michałek has left the institute for a new position at the University of Konstanz. More than three years of exemplary science as research group leader in “Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry” under his belt, he now took on the function of professor of Geometry (Real Geometry and Algebra). We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations on his well-deserved success and wish him all the best in his new position. Mateusz gives us a wonderful insight into his mathematical uprising and features his research at the institute in our Future proof column.

Open positions in Numerical and Probabilistic Nonlinear Algebra (15.10.2020)

Starting in April 2021 Paul Breiding will head a new Emmy Noether Group on Numerical and Probabilistic Nonlinear Algebra at the institute.
Both a PhD student and Postdoctoral researcher are sought out to give this group an exceptional scientific inauguration next year.
