At a Glance

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers a variety of international degrees in mathematics, computer science, and bioinformatics, as well as a wide range of courses in teacher education. The research activities of the Institute of Mathematics focus on numerical mathematics and scientific computing, algebra, analysis, discrete mathematics, and geometry, while the Institute of Computer Science focuses on facilitating cooperation among people through the communication and processing of information in networks.

Very successful transdisciplinary research is carried out in cooperation with other universities, for example, within the Berlin Mathematical School, the DFG Research Center Matheon, and the German Center for Teacher Education Mathematics. As of 2014, the activities of these three institutions will be pooled within a new institution, the Einstein Center for Mathematics, a decision which was approved in May 2012.

Several examples for productive cooperation with independent research institutions are the International Max Planck Research School for Computational Biology and Scientific Computing and the Helmholtz Graduate Research School GeoSim that trains outstanding young scholars in structured doctoral programs taught in English under the umbrella of Dahlem Research School, as well as the Research Forum on Public Safety and Security, which was set up in October 2009 and is aimed at merging research projects and the work of different disciplines and institutions that deal with public safety and security.
