Cluster of Excellence

The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics is dedicated to further mathematical research in Bonn.

The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics

The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM), was established 2006 a Cluster of Excellence at the University of Bonn under the title "Mathematics: Foundations, Models, Applications" within the Excellence Initiative by the German federal and state governments. It has been successfully renewed for a second funding period in 2012. Its work thematically comprises a broad spectrum of mathematics as well as mathematical economics: from topics from the classical core areas of mathematics through mathematical modeling and numerical simulation in the natural and social sciences to industrial applications in chip design.

Structural goals

Next to challenging research goals HCM also pursues ambitious structural goals.

  • Building an international hub with thematic trimester programs and an intensive guest program, the Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics (HIM). 
  • Promoting young scientists, from PhD students to junior faculty.
  • Broadening the local basis via five new full professor positions (Hausdorff Chairs).
Organization: HCM / HIM / BIGS

 Two main activities have been established as components of HCM:

HCM supports its components and its ten Research Areas with several new academic positions (Hausdorff chairs, Bonn Junior Fellows, Hausdorff Postdocs) and PhD grants (Hausdorff scholarships).

The center involves the four mathematics institutes and the theoretical economists at the University of Bonn as well as the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics. The involved faculty consists of more than 60 Bonn professors in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and theoretical economics.
