Peter Scholze erhält die Fields-Medaille. Dem neuen Direktor am Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik wird die höchste Auszeichnung seiner Disziplin verliehen

Die Fields-Medaille gilt als Nobelpreis der Mathematik, und in diesem Jahr ehrt die Internationale Mathematische Union damit Peter Scholze. Dem Professor am Hausdorff-Zentrum für Mathematik der Universität Bonn und Direktor am Bonner Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik wurde der Preis auf dem Internationalen Mathematikerkongress in Rio de Janeiro verliehen. Der 30jährige ist erst der zweite Deutsche, der ihn erhält.

SageMath (http://www.sagemath.org/) is an open source software for mathematical computations. It gathers hundreds of specialized libraries and softwares in a unified Python interface.

On the afternoon of July 24th, there will be a presentation of SageMath at MPI Bonn (1:00 - 4:00). After tea time (ie from 5pm) several SageMath experts will be there on the fourth floor in case you need help for installing SageMath on your computer or need advice on how to carry a specific computation.

This event is part of a week long workshop taking place at the Computer Science department of Bonn University.

Michael Atiyah 1929-2019

Posted in

The Max Planck Institute for Mathematics mourns the death of Michael Atiyah, one of the giants of mathematics. Over many decades Michael Atiyah was a frequent and welcome visitor, inspiring speaker, ingeneous collaborator, and friend to many of the mathematicians in Bonn. Together with Friedrich Hirzebruch, MPIM's founding director and one of Michael's oldest and closest friends, he laid the foundations for topological K-theory, an important tool in algebraic topology. He almost always gave the opening lecture of the annual Mathematische Arbeitstagung in Bonn, from its beginning in 1957.

"A world from a sheet of paper". Hirzebruch lecture by Tadashi Tokieda on Wednesday, October 31, University Club Bonn

Starting from just a sheet of paper, by folding, stacking, crumpling, tearing, we will explore a rich variety of phenomena, from magic tricks and geometry to elasticity and the traditional Japanese art of origami. Much of the lecture consists of actual table-top demos, which you can try later with friends and family.

Peter Scholze new director at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics

Peter Scholze is a new director at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics. The 30-year old is one of the leading researchers in the field of Arithmetic Geometry. His achievements have already been recognized by a number of prizes and honors. Among others: a Clay Fellowship, the Prix Peccot of the Collège de France, the Clay Research Award, the Cole Prize for Algebra of the American Mathematical Society, the EMS Prize of the European Mathematical Society, the Leibniz Prize of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, and the membership in four prestigious scientific academies.
