Support for Women in Math
We want to promote female mathematicians. That is why we award the Entrepreneurial Awards as part of "Global Challenges for Women in Math Science". Apply with your project!
Lecture in the Deutsches Museum
Seeing sounds, hearing patterns. On October 5, 2022, Prof. Jürgen Richter-Gebert held a lecture in the "Science for Everyone" series of the Deutsches Museum. This is also available as a video.
Talks on the Hodge Conjecture
The "Hodge conjecture" is one of the mathematical millennium problems - and still unproven today. Jürgen Richter-Gebert and Christian Liedtke provide an insight in the series "The 7 Greatest Adventures in Mathematics".
