The Max Planck Institute for Mathematics is one of the nearly eighty research institutes of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Wissenschaften [3]. The institute was founded in 1980 by Prof. Friedrich Hirzebruch [4]✝ who directed until his retirement in 1995. The institute is led by a board of directors consisting of Gerd Faltings [5], Peter Scholze [6] and Peter Teichner [7]. They are joined by Stavros Garoufalidis [8], Sergei Gukov [9], Stefan Müller [10], and Werner Nahm [11] as external scientific members and emeritus directors Werner Ballmann [12], Günter Harder [13], Yuri Manin [14] and Don Zagier [15] as retired scientific members of the institute. Gerd Faltings is presently the managing director.

The working areas are:

- Algebraic Groups
- Arithmetic Geometry
- Number Theory
- Representation Theory
- Algebraic and Complex Geometry
- Differential Geometry and Topology
- Algebraic Topology
- Global Analysis
- Non-Commutative Geometry
- Dynamical Systems
- Mathematical Physics

The institute has only a small number of permanent staff. Most of the scientists visit the institute for a fixed period of time within our Guest Program [16]. This concept aims at stimulating the discussion and the exchange of ideas within the mathematics community.

The research is supported by the library, the administration and the computer group.
