Moduli spaces parameterize continuous deformations of mathematical objects. Their study (starting with ideas of Riemann in the 19th century) has revealed many surprises: universal structures, connections between different subjects, and wild leaps. I will present some sense of the motivations and results related to the study of moduli spaces from the perspective of examples ranging from configurations of mechanical linkages to the moduli of varieties and sheaves.

Emeritus director of institute passed away at age 85

Bonn, January 8, 2023. The Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn mourns the death of Professor Yuri Ivanovich Manin. The eminent mathematician passed away on Saturday, January 7, at the age of 85. Yuri Manin was a scientific member and director of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics from 1992 to 2005, after which he remained an extremely active emeritus director. His work largely influenced the development of modern mathematics. With Yuri Manin, mathematics has lost one of his truly great personalities. He was a wonderful human being and a renowned researcher whose contributions have shaped the entire field. Our institute will always remain his institute, too.
