Developments in the Mathematical Sciences 2019

Founded more than 20 years ago, the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences is an important research center. The mission of the institute is to conduct cutting-edge research in pure and applied mathematics and to promote the interlinking of ideas and concepts between mathematics and the sciences in both directions. However, given our size, topics covered in the institute are limited. Yet, many fascinating developments happen in the mathematical sciences all the time.

This conference is meant to overcome this limitation and to give insights in recent developments. We aim to discuss current trends and gain an overview of today’s mathematical landscape – in particular with respect to the label “Mathematics in the Sciences”. Speakers will motivate their work and embed it into a general context. Talks will be accessible to mathematicians from a wide range of backgrounds. There will be ample time for questions and informal interactions.
