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).




2 December – Bruno Klingler: Hodge theory, between algebraicity and transcendence

This talk aims to show how tame geometry, whose idea was introduced by Grothendieck in the 1980s as a generalization of real semi-algebraic geometry and developed by model theorist as o-minimal geometry, appears as a natural framework to control this transcendence. Bruno Klingler has been an Einstein professor for algebra at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin since 2017. He was awarded an ERC Advanc...
