## Hausdorff Center for Mathematics

Bonn is an internationally renowned center for mathematical research and teaching. The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM), established in 2006 as the first German Cluster of Excellence in Mathematics, is a major center for mathematical research and international scientific exchange. Its spectrum ranges from pure and applied mathematics to interdisciplinary research, including theoretical economics. HCM features the Hausdorff Research Institute (HIM) with its trimester programs, the Hausdorff school (HSM) which mainly addresses postdocs, and our graduate school (BIGS) for PhD students.

- the Institutes

The University of Bonn has four institutes dedicated to mathematical teaching and research. The Department of Mathematics coordinates teaching and research in Mathematics within the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Bonn. If you love mathematics, Bonn is the place to be!

## Max Planck Institute for Mathematics

The Max Planck Institute for Mathematics is a research institute for pure mathematics and belongs to the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft (MPG). With its well known guest program the institute aims at stimulating the exchange of ideas within the international mathematics community.

**Wolfgang Lück, professor at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Bonn and member of the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics, has been awarded the Karl Georg Christian von Staudt Prize by the Otto and Edith Haupt Foundation at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. The foundation honors his outstanding contributions to topology. The award ceremony will take place on June 6, 2025.**

**Don Zagier, Director emeritus of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn and associated member of the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics, was elected as a new member of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. The Accademia dei Lincei will officially welcome its new members at a ceremony that will take place in Rome on Friday 8 November 2024.**

**Ana Caraiani, former Bonn Junior Fellow and Hausdorff Chair at the HCM and now professor of pure mathematics at the Imperial College London, has been awarded the 2025 Ruth Lyttle Satter Prize in Mathematics by the American Mathematical Society (AMS). She has been honored for contributions to arithmetic geometry and number theory: in particular, the Langlands program.**

**The University of Bonn is once again welcoming a top-notch reinforcement in the shape of mathematician professor László Végh. He has been appointed to a Hertz Chair, which connects up different disciplines at the University of Excellence in a unique way. László Végh will be based in the Transdisciplinary Research Area "Modelling”, where he will help to strengthen the links between different departments in the fields of algorithms and optimization problems in particular. In addition, László Végh is a member of the Research Institute for Discrete Mathematics and the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM).**
