Mathematikon Entrance

Our Faculty is the academic home of researchers, teachers, and students of Mathematics and Computer Science. Its institutes and facilities are housed in the Mathematikon, pleasantly located on the Campus Neuenheimer Feld of Heidelberg University. Welcome!

Mathematikon Staircase

The Doctorate signifies a proven ability to conduct independent scientific research. Under the auspices of the Combined Faculty of Mathematics, Engineering and Natural Sciences, we confer the academic degree Dr. rer. nat. in the subjects of mathematics and computer science.

Mathematikon Library

Students interested in Mathematics, Computer Science, or an interdisciplinary field, pursuing a B.Sc., M.Sc., or M.Ed., and aiming for a career in research, teaching, or the private sector, will find here in Heidelberg a full range of first-class courses for a challenging and enriching educational experience in an intellectually stimulating environment with historical cachet.

Mathematikon Lobby

We seek to promote the interest in mathematics and computer science by organizing events for schools and for the broader public. Alumns and newcomers join in and contribute to shared knowledge and contacts.

Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung Research Award

Professor Dhruv Mubayi (Univ. of Illinois at Chicago) receives award for his profound and far-reaching contributions in discrete mathematics.
Professor Dhruv Mubayi

The Alexander von Humboldt research award is a prestigious prize awarded to world-leading researchers for the excellent contributions in their research fields with the aim that they visit Germany for a few months. Professor Dhruv Mubayi was successfully nominated for this prize by Juniorprofessor Felix Joos (Theoretical Computer Science). Professor Dhruv Mubayi visits our department in summer 2022 and in summer 2023.

Professor Dhruv Mubayi's research focusses mainly on different topics in combinatorics and graph theory. In particular, he is interested in Ramsey theory, where one investigates unavoidable patterns in large discrete objects.
