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.

Die Sieger der diesjährigen HHL-MPI-Leibniz-Matheolympiade sind gekürt.

HERZLICHEN GLÜCKWUNSCH! Wir danken allen teilnehmenden Schülerinnen und Schülern und allen Partnern und Unterstützern des Wettbewerbs.

The hidden structure of the periodic system

The well-known representation of chemical elements is just one example of how objects can be arranged and classified. MPI researchers describe a formal mathematical structure that could provide many different periodic systems – not only for chemistry, but also for many other fields of knowledge.
