Research Fields

Research at the Department of Mathematics covers many areas of mathematics. On the one hand inner-mathematical questions play a key role. It is particularly fruitful to study the relationship of various mathematical fields among themselves and to apply methods of one field to another. Furthermore, many interesting problems are motivated by problems in the natural and engineering sciences and economics. Current topics include the following fields:
