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.

Max Planck Sabbatical Award for Venkat Chandrasekaran (08.09.2021)

Venkat Chandrasekaran, Professor in Computing and Mathematical Sciences and in Electrical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology, was awarded a Max Planck Sabbatical Award by the Max Planck Society. The award enables him to establish a close cooperation with our institute during a one-year research stay in Leipzig. With his own local research group, he studies convex objects that arise in applications like convex optimization and data science.

Time to pedal again - Leipzig's MPIs join City Cycling 2021

From September 10 to 30, all of the Leipzig MPIs will be part of the nationwide competition for more climate protection and safe cycling. All cyclists, and those aspiring to be, are cordially invited to kick off the campaign during the traditional Leipzig Cycle Night on September 10 at 7 pm. Hop on the saddle with us. Every kilometer counts.
