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.

With polytopes to an excellent dissertation (26.05.2023)

Marie-Charlotte Brandenburg successfully completed her doctorate on the “Tropical Positivity and Semialgebraic Sets from Polytopes”. She will remain at the MPI as a postdoc in the Math Machine Learning Group. Heartfelt congratulations!
