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.

Anatol Rapoport Prize for opinion polarization model (24.09.2020)

Congratulations to Sven Banisch and Eckehard Olbrich. They have been awarded this year's Anatol Rapoport Prize by the German Society for Sociology for their research on the influence of social feedback on opinion polarization. The prize is awarded every two years by the section „Modellbildung und Simulation“ (DGS-ModSim) for original sociological work in the field of modeling and simulation.

Anatol Rapoport was an American mathematical psychologist. He contributed to general systems theory, mathematical biology, the mathematical modeling of social interaction and stochastic models of contagion.

Discover how opinion polarization in networks propagates via social feedback in this interactive online model and read our previous news on the role of social feedback in opinion polarization.
