The Max Planck Institute for Mathematics Declares its Solidarity with the People in Ukraine

Posted in

We strongly agree with the statements of the Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany, the European Mathematical Society, and the President of the Max Planck Society.

We are in strong solidarity with our mathematical friends and colleagues in Ukraine. As a practical help, our guest program can offer a medium-term perspective for Ukrainian scientists.

Corona Virus – Relevant information (as of October 1, 2022) for all scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics

Posted in

During the pandemic, regulations are imposed by different sources. The German government imposes the overall rules, but the governments of the individual Länder (federal states in Germany) as well as some cities have the freedom to impose regulations with regard to the particular situation of the area. Here we try to summarize the information relevant for our guests as best as possible and to keep it up to date. We assume no liability for this information and refer to the government websites for the official regulations:

NRW website (only in German), Federal Foreign Office's website, city of Bonn's website.

Regulations in Bonn / NRW / Germany

Update October 1, 2022 - April 7, 2023:

  • FFP2 masks are mandatory for long-distance public transport for peopple of 14 y/o and up. Children and adolescents 6-13 y/o and personnel may also wear medical masks (surgical masks).
  • in direct public transport in Bonn and surroundings at least a medical mask must be worn.
  • For access to hospitals and care facilities, FFP2 masks are mandatory and testing is compulsory.
  • Wearing an FFP2 mask is mandatory for patients and visitors in doctors' offices, dialysis facilities and other healthcare facilities.
  • In many areas the mask obligation is dropped indoors and outdoors. However, an obligation to wear a mask can be imposed via the house rules of the respective facility. Indoors, the wearing of a protective mask is still recommended. No medical mask or FFP2 mask needs to be worn outside.

Conference on "Motives and Automorphic Forms" in honour of Günter Harder's 85th Birthday, March 6 - 10, 2023

Conference on "Motives and Automorphic Forms" in honour of Günter Harder's 85th Birthday, March 6 - 10, 2023

Following a line of research culminated with the works of Weil, Eichler, Shimura and Taniyama, then further pushed by the emerging of the Langlands program, many deep and fruitful bridges between automorphic forms and algebraic geometry have been explored and led to spectacular results. During the fifty years span from the proof of Ramanujan’s conjecture on the discriminant modular form, using the validity of the Weil conjectures in algebraic geometry over finite fields, to the recent proof of the Sato-Tate conjectures for elliptic curves over CM fields, using automorphic machinery, it has been clearly established that the interaction between these two fields has amazing applications in both directions. Moreover, several guiding principles in this area have been inspired by the philosophy of motives, which has now developed into a mature theory providing not only heuristics, but concrete and sophisticated new tools to attack problems. The aim of the conference is to present the state of the art of the field by gathering leading experts at the crossroads of automorphic forms, arithmetic geometry and representation theory, and celebrating Günter Harder’s influence on these topics.

Pius XI Medal Awarded to Peter Scholze

Posted in

Peter Scholze, director at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics and professor at the University of Bonn, was awarded the Pius XI Gold Medal 2020 by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. The medal is awarded every two years to a young scientist under the age of 45, chosen for his or her exceptional promise. After Luis A. Caffarelli (1988), Laure Saint-Raymond (2004), and Cédric Villani (2014), Peter Scholze is only the fourth mathematician to receive this honor.

Conference on "Arithmetic Statistics, Automorphic Forms and Ergodic Methods", April 24 - 28, 2023

The field of arithmetic statistics is a fast-moving area of number theory, dealing with distributional results for many basic and important objects: ranks of elliptic curves, central values of L-functions, number fields, modular symbols, orbits of discrete groups etc. The techniques involved come from diverse areas of mathematics e.g. automorphic forms, ergodic theory, spectral theory, dynamical systems, probabilistic number theory, representation theory and random matrix theory. This workshop intends to bring together researchers of all career levels to present their work and exchange ideas and techniques on arithmetic statistics. Motivated by the  programme of Mazur and Rubin based on their computational study of elliptic curves over abelian extensions of fixed degree, the meeting will focus on modular symbols, Manin's noncommutative modular symbols, equidistribution of lattice points on the sphere, Heegner points, and closed geodesics, including the error term in the Prime Geodesic Theorem.
