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 June 7, 2022) for all scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics

Posted in

Starting June 7, 2022, all Corona measures from MPIM are lifted.

  • wearing a mask is now voluntary in the whole institute and there is no 3G rule for external visitors anymore.
  • the limit and mask obligation for the lecture hall is also lifted.
  • However, if a member of staff asks you to wear a mask when entering their office, we kindly ask you to respect this.
  • We urgently ask you to stay home if you have any symptoms suggestive of the Corona virus and report every positive tested case to or 0228-402-255.

The recommendations remain:

  • Participate in virtual meetings and talks.
  • Wash and disinfect your hands regularly.
  • Keep at least a 1.5m distance.
  • Ventilate the rooms regularly.

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.

Fields Medal awarded to Maryna Viazovska. Former doctoral student of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics receives highest distinction in mathematics

Posted in

The Fields Medal is considered the Nobel Prize of mathematics. This year the International Mathematical Union chose to award it to Maryna Viazovska, who wrote her doctoral thesis at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics with Don Zagier and received her PhD from the University of Bonn in 2013. The Ukranian mathematician is second woman to ever receive this prize.
