|About||Fundamental questions arising from natural and engineering sciences and economics have always inspired mathematicians to search for new mathematical structures and methods.|
The mission of the MPI for Mathematics in the Sciences is not only to apply existing mathematical methods and techniques to the sciences, but also to transmit the conceptual and structural approach of mathematics into new areas of research, and, vice versa, to translate scientific questions and problems into mathematical challenges.
This mission lives on an extremely interdisciplinary approach to mathematical and scientific questions and we attack these questions by means of scientific exchange, collaboration, and cooperation with researchers from all over the world. An important key to the research at the institute is that this collaboration includes researchers from many different fields like mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, and neuroscience.
|Description||The Max Planck Society made the decision to set up a Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences recognising the increasing mathematisation of almost all of the sciences and the significant developments in mathematical analysis and geometry in Germany. This institute was founded on March 1, 1996 and it works closely with the venerable University of Leipzig. It is also a member of the ERCOM association of leading European research institutes in the field of mathematics and it organises conferences at regular intervals.|
