Höchstdotierter Mathematikpreis in Deutschland geht an Don Zagier

München, 25. März 2024. Die Carl Friedrich von Siemens Stiftung verleiht den Gumin Preis für Mathematik an Don Zagier, bis 2019 Direktor am Bonner Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik. Die Stiftung würdigt hiermit die bahnbrechende Forschungsarbeit des Preisträgers zur Zahlentheorie und zur Theorie der Modulformen.

Thomas O. Höllmann, Vorsitzender des Stiftungsvorstands: „Mit Don Zagier geht der Gumin Preis 2024 wieder an einen auf seinen Spezialgebieten seit Jahrzehnten herausragenden Mathematiker. Neben der Zahlentheorie und der Theorie der Modulformen forscht der Preisträger auch im Bereich der Topologie. Letzteres schafft sogar eine kleine Gemeinsamkeit mit der frühen Arbeit Heinz Gumins, dem Namensgeber des Preises. Unser Dank gilt unserer Fachjury, deren sorgfältige Recherche diese Preisverleihung erst möglich macht.“

Workshop on "Dualisable Categories & Continuous K-theory", September 9 - 13, 2024

Algebraic K-theory is an object that sits at the centre of large parts of algebra, geometry, and topology because of its universal role as a receptacle to count other mathematical objects with signs. However, since its invention, a phenomenon often called the Eilenberg swindle - which says that the algebraic K-theory of a category which is too large must necessarily be zero - has been accepted as a fundamental limit to the theory.

Conference on "Homology Growth in Topology and Group Theory", May 13 - 17, 2024

Homology growth is an umbrella term for a number of invariants associated to a topological space. In their simplest incarnation, they measure the growth of Betti numbers in finite covers of the space. Over the years, homology growth became a central topic in group theory and geometric topology. It connects various topological and geometric phenomena, especially in low-dimensional manifolds, with analytically or combinatorially defined invariants, like L^2-Betti numbers. In particular, homology growth plays a central role in controlling the existence of fiberings, over the circle in the topological setting, and over the integers in the algebraic one. The motivation and guiding principles come from the theory of 3-manifolds.Inspired by Agol's resolution of Thurston's Virtual Fibering Conjecture, homology growth and related ideas have been very recently used both in the algebraic setting of cubulated groups, and in higher dimensional negatively curved manifolds. This conference aims to bring together people behind these recent developments, provide an overview of the field and help formulate a coherent system of conjectures to guide us in the years to come.

"The Quadratic Formula Revisited". Hirzebruch lecture by Bernd Sturmfels on Thursday, 9 November 2023, University Club Bonn

High school students learn how to express the solution of a quadratic equation in one unknown in terms of its three coefficients. Why does this formula matter? We offer an answer in terms of discriminants and data. This lecture invites the audience to a journey towards non-linear algebra.

Maryna Viazovska External Member of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics

Maryna Viazovska, full professor and Chair of Number Theory at the Institute of Mathematics of the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, has joined the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics as external scientific member. She was PhD student of Don Zagier from 2008-2012 and obtained her doctoral degree from the University of Bonn. Since then, she has returned to the institute regularly as a visitor and speaker. We are happy that Maryna will now play an even more active role in the research community and the development of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics.
