Was Sie einen Mathematiker/eine Mathematikerin schon immer fragen wollten - tun Sie es am Tag der offenen Tür am Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik! Lernen Sie unser Institut kennen und erfahren Sie, aus welchen Ländern die Wissenschaftler und Wissenschaftlerinnen unseres Gästeprogramms kommen. Tauchen Sie bei einem virtuellen Rundgang in M. C. Eschers Bilder ein und versuchen Sie Ihr Glück bei einem Mathequiz. Lernen Sie, wie man Sudokus und den Zauberwürfel in null Komma nichts löst, und sehen Sie, was ein 3D-Drucker alles kann. Lassen Sie sich von einem Mathe-Magier verzaubern und finden Sie heraus, woran unsere preisgekrönten Mathe-Genies gerade arbeiten.

Geordie Williamson, who has been Advanced Researcher at MPIM from 2011-2016, will be the youngest scientist ever to become a member of the Royal Society.

Geordie Williamson works in Representation Theory. He has made several fundamental contributions to the field including his proof (with Ben Elias) of the Kazhdan-Lusztig positivity conjecture, his algebraic proof of the Jantzen conjectures, and his discovery of counter-examples to the Lusztig conjecture in modular representation theory.
