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 Seminar Room

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 over 30 Doctoral degrees in the subjects of mathematics and computer science each year.

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.

CRC Geometry and Arithmetic of Uniformized Strucutres

A new collaborative research center with strong participation of the Heidelberg Mathematical Institute and the IWR is funded by DFG.
Uniformized Structure

The new CRC/TRR 326 will concentrate on the mathematical technique of uniformisation, which can be used to replace complicated geometric objects with simpler ones without changing the local structure. The original complexity is encoded in a suitable symmetry group, i.e. translated into another “language”. This approach opens up new pathways to study the original object. The research seeks to expand techniques of uniformisation and refine them for different challenges, with the aim of applying them to central geometric and arithmetical problems. In doing so, the CRC/TRR researchers from the universities in Frankfurt, Heidelberg, and Darmstadt hope to gain new insights into moduli spaces, amongst other things. Their findings could be relevant particularly in the context of Galois representations and automorphic forms. Prof. Dr Alexander Schmidt from the Mathematical Institute of Heidelberg University is co-spokesperson of the “Geometry and Arithmetic of Uniformized Structures” CRC/TRR, which is receiving DFG funding in the amount of approximately 11.2 million euros.
