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.

Lukas Geuter honored with DMV scholarship to study the dynamics of active systems (19.02.2020)

We would like to give a warm welcome to Lukas Geuter from TU Berlin. Lukas was awarded a study visit scholarship by the German Mathematical Society (DMV) last year. He is in the first year of his PhD and studies the mathematical properties of active systems. During his four week stay in the group of Felix Otto he plans to gain insights into the existence, uniqueness and regularity of solutions for systems of complex fluids and microswimmer suspensions.

This year's DMV student conference (StuKon 2020) will be held at our institute on July 16-17 and offers recent graduates of the mathematical sciences an overview of job perspectives in the field.
