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.

Benjamin Gess secured coveted ERC grant (02.02.2023)

Research group leader and University of Bielefeld Mathematics professor Benjamin Gess received a European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant for his research in Stochastic partial differential equations. Gess and his team will be using the 2 million Euro, 5-year funding to reveal which universal properties connect stochastic systems. The ERC Consolidator Grant is highly sought after, with only 14% of applications being successful this time.
