Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics


Bringing together a critical mass of expertise and scientists at one place and providing an inspiring mathematical atmosphere, the activities at HIM initiate research at the forefront of mathematics in its full breadth. HIM gives mathematicians the opportunity to work on challenging projects undisturbed and for longer periods, and to discuss them with leading experts in their field. This leads to a substantial output of research results of the highest quality, initiated, pursued and sometimes even completed during the programs.

See Programs for more information on the main HIM activities:

  • Hausdorff Trimester Program
  • Junior Hausdorff Trimester Program
  • Research in Groups

Moreover, HIM organizes special activities to general topics (e.g. mathematics education in schools and universities) and public events.
