## 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.

**The Department of Mathematics (Fachgruppe Mathematik) honors Thorsten Michael Beckmann for the best dissertation of the academic year 2022/2023 in mathematics with the Hausdorff Memorial Prize. The honor today was presented by the chair of the Department, Herbert Koch, before the Hausdorff Colloquium in the Lipschitz Hall.**

**The Institute for Numerical Simulation at the University of Bonn has awarded Vera Weber the Ada Lovelace Prize for the academic year 2022/2023. The prize was awarded for her master's thesis entitled "On aspects of discretization strategies with applications in imaging", which was supervised by Ira Neitzel.**

**The economist Professor Christian Bayer from the Institute for Macroeconomics and Econometrics at the University of Bonn and member of the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM) has been awarded a Proof of Concept (PoC) Grant by the European Research Council (ERC). This program hands researchers €150,000 in funding for up to 18 months to help them commercialize their ideas from previous ERC projects through excellent basic research.**

**Eva Viehmann from the University of Münster has been awarded the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize 2024 by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for her excellent research. With a prize money of 2.5 million euros, the Leibniz Prize is the most highly endowed German research award. Eva Viehmann has a close relationship to Bonn: she studied, completed her PhD and habilitation in Bonn and worked for a long time in the Arithmetic Geometry group at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Bonn.**
