<p>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.</p><p></p><p><a href="http://www.mpim-bonn.mpg.de/node/8453" target="_blank">read more</a></p>PublicWed, 27 Jun 2018 10:07:20 +0000kohlhuber8453 at http://www.mpim-bonn.mpg.deGeordie Willamson elected Fellow of the Royal Society

http://www.mpim-bonn.mpg.de/node/7939
<div><strong>Marina Viazovska</strong> is a recipient of one of the New Horizons in Mathematics Prizes 2018 "for the remarkable application of the theory of modular forms to the sphere packing problem in special dimensions." Maryna was a doctoral student of Don Zagier in the MPIM graduate school from 2008-2012. She obtained her PhD from the University of Bonn in 2013.</div><div> </div><div>The <a href="https://breakthroughprize.org/Prizes/3">New Horizons in Mathematics Prize</a> is an annual prize for junior researchers who have already produced important work. It consists of a monetary award of $100,000. The prize was established in 2016 and is funded by Mark Zuckerberg and Yuri Milner. The awards were announced together with the <a href="https://breakthroughprize.org/News/41">Breakthrough Prizes 2018</a> on December 3, 2017 at a gala ceremony in Silicon Valley hosted by Morgan Freeman.</div><p></p><p><a href="http://www.mpim-bonn.mpg.de/node/7939" target="_blank">read more</a></p>NewsThu, 11 Jan 2018 11:23:31 +0000blohmann7939 at http://www.mpim-bonn.mpg.deMaryna Viazovska Awarded 2017 Ramanujan Prize
http://www.mpim-bonn.mpg.de/node/7937
<p>Maryna Viazovska, who conducted her doctoral research at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics from 2008-2012 under the guidance of Don Zagier, was awarded the Ramanujan Prize for 2017. Professor Viazovska is honored “for her stunning solution in dimension 8 of the celebrated sphere packing problem, and for her equally impressive joint work with Henry Cohn, Abhinav Kumar, Stephen D. Miller and Danylo Radchenko resolving the sphere packing problem in dimension 24, by building upon her fundamental ideas in dimension 8.” The prize also recognizes her outstanding PhD thesis of 2013 at the University of Bonn in which she resolved significant cases of the Gross-Zagier Conjecture and her work prior to her PhD with A. Bodarenko and D. Radchenko resolving a long-standing conjecture of Korevaar and Meyers on spherical designs, that appeared in the Annals of Mathematics in 2013. The prize notes that the modular forms techniques developed by Viazovska will have a significant future impact in discrete geometry, analytic number theory, and harmonic analysis. It was awarded on December 22 (Ramanujan's birthday), 2017 at the International Conference on Number Theory at SASTRA University in Kumbakonam, India, Ramanujan’s hometown.</p><p></p><p><a href="http://www.mpim-bonn.mpg.de/node/7937" target="_blank">read more</a></p>NewsAnnouncementsThu, 11 Jan 2018 10:27:02 +0000blohmann7937 at http://www.mpim-bonn.mpg.deMPIM Postdocs to Receive Prestigeous Award in Chinese Thousand Talents Program
