The project-oriented research at the Weierstrass Institute is characterized by combining the mathematical disciplines of analysis, stochastics and numerics. This combination has great potential for solving complex applied problems. The institute aids in solving current societal challenges, such as the reliable extraction of information from large datasets or the suitable consideration of uncertainties in describing processes.
The institute dedicates itself to fundamental mathematical research as well as the development of algorithms and scientific software. During the problem-solving process, mathematical models of physical and technological systems are designed that properly capture observed phenomena, thereby providing access to highly developed mathematical analysis. At WIAS the phases of the solving process are repeated and coordinated until an optimal solution is found.
70th birthday of Juergen Sprekels
An honorary colloquium on the occasion of the 70th birthday of former WIAS director Juergen Sprekels took place on October 24, 2018.
MATH+ will be funded as a Cluster of Excellence!
Joint proposal of FU, HU, TU, ZIB, and WIAS in the framework of Germany's Excellence Strategy has been successful.
