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, represented by the Directors and the Leaders of the Research Groups:



  • Angkana Rüland (19.09.)
  • Emil Saucan (14.09.)
  • Hông Vân Lê (11.09.)
  • Lorenz Schwachhöfer (11.09.)
