Transforming the World

through Mathematics

Berlin Mathematics Research Center

MATH+, the Berlin Mathematics Research Center, is a cross-institutional and interdisciplinary Cluster of Excellence. It sets out to explore and further develop new approaches in application-oriented mathematics. Emphasis is placed on mathematical principles for using ever larger amounts of data in life and material sciences, in energy and network research, and in the humanities and social sciences.


MATH+ is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) under Germany´s Excellence Strategy (EXC-2046/1, project ID 390685689) for a first period of seven years since January 2019. It is a joint project of the three major universities in Berlin – Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Technische Universität Berlin – as well as the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) and the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB). MATH+ continues the success stories of the renowned Research Center Matheon and the Excellence-Graduate School Berlin Mathematical School (BMS).



MATH+ Distinguished Fellow Alexander Mielke (WIAS / HU Berlin)

We are delighted to introduce the next MATH+ Distinguished Fellow: Alexander Mielke. He is a Professor of Applied Analysis at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Head of the research group “Partial Differential Equations” at the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) in Berlin.

Honoring John M. Sullivan – Happy 60th Birthday!

MATH+ and the BMS would like to congratulate John M. Sullivan on the occasion of his 60th birthday and extend very best wishes for his personal and professional future. His profound and consistent commitment as a BMS Chair over the last 13 years has made him a significant and much-appreciated member of the Berlin math community.

Award Ceremony of the Math Advent Calendars 2022

On Friday, 20 January 2023, after a two-year break due to the Corona pandemic, we finally held our big celebratory Math Advent Calendar Award Ceremony again. The MATH+ winners in attendance were from the 9th grade and high school graduating class. Congratulations!



27-30 March – Logic, Limits, Contingency: A Critical Digital “Spring School”

In the current Winter Semester 2022/23, MATH+ is collaborating with the Cluster of Excellence “Temporal Communities” in the Thematic Einstein Forum (TEF) on “Scales of Temporality: Modeling Time and Predictability in the Literary and Mathematical Sciences.” As a concluding activity, a Spring School will be offered from 27-30 March 2023. Welcome to join!

14. März – MATHINSIDE am Pi Day 2023

In der Vortragsreihe MATHINSIDE geben Wissenschaftler*innen des Exzellenzclusters MATH+ spannende Einblicke in ihre Forschungsarbeit und in die Anwendungsgebiete der Mathematik. Das Vortragsprogramm eignet sich hervorragend als Ausflugsziel für Schulklassen und -kurse ab Klassenstufe 10. Am 14.03.2023 gibt es Vorträge von den MATH+ Forschern Wolfgang König, Max Fackeldey und Niels Lindner.

10 February – Stephen Wright: Optimization in Data Science

In this talk, Wright will discuss how formulation and algorithmic tools from optimization have been used to address problems in computational statistics, machine learning, and AI. Stephen J. Wright holds the George B. Dantzig Professorship, the Sheldon Lubar Chair, and the Amar and Balinder Sohi Professorship of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
