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.

Introduction to the Generalized Poincaré Conjecture

Public Lecture by Markus Banagl, July 15, 2022, 3:30 pm, HS Mathematikon

Title: "Introduction to the Generalized Poincaré Conjecture"

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Markus Banagl (University of Heidelberg)

Language: English

Time and Place: On Friday July 15 2002 at 3:30 p.m. in the lecture hall of the Mathematikon

Content: The generalized Poincaré conjecture aims for recognizing a sphere based on certain local and global assumptions on a space: It should locally be modelled on n-dimensional Euclidean space, it should be compact, simply connected and have the homology of an n-dimensional sphere. We will give a first introduction to these questions and, after sketching the genesis of the conjecture, focus on the influential topological methods that lead to a proof in high dimensions.

Target Audience: Students of Mathematics, academics, and the mathematically interested public

Organizers: Mathematical Institute, STRUCTURES, and GeoDyn
