Mathematics has been and still is a tool box that can be used in a wide variety of applications. In the recent two decades though, mathematics has turned into an important production factor. It has, in particular, a significant impact on industrial innovation cycles. Today, mathematicians model, simulate, and optimize real-world processes arising in many areas of industry and society. The influence of this methodology is especially strong in key technologies.
Due to their broad usability the mathematical sub-fields of discrete mathematics, optimization, numerical analysis, scientific computing, and stochastic analysis have experienced a considerable growth and are now employed to optimize, for example, various networks and train circulations, to develop models for quality assurance and to visualize big data.During the conference, German and French experts will present examples of best practice solutions and applications in talks and open discussions.
Beside meeting other mathematicians you will have the chance to discover the mathematical side of the German capital on a guided tour through the “Berliner Dom” or the "3D Labor" of the Technical University Berlin.
The Participation is free of charge. The Conference will be held in English.To register, please use the attached PDF.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
