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.

Teubner Foundation Science Award goes to Michael Struwe (30.06.2022)

The Teubner Foundation honors Prof. Michael Struwe with the 2022 Prize for the Promotion of Mathematical Sciences. The public award ceremony with laudation by Jürgen Jost and a keynote lecture will take place on Friday, July 8 at 4:30 p.m. at the University of Leipzig. In the morning, Michael Struwe will give a lecture at the Max Planck Institute, which can be attended online.
