Research at HIM is devoted to all areas of mathematics, mathematical economics, and interactions of mathematics with other sciences. It is carried out by guest scientists who take part in one of the programs at HIM:

Hausdorff Trimester Program (HTP)

During a Hausdorff Trimester Program, which lasts four months, the Institute invites a group of mathematicians or economists from all over the world to carry out research with a special emphasis on collaborative activities. The Institute can host up to 30 mathematicians at any one time and tries to distribute these places between senior mathematicians, postdocs and PhD students. The theme of each program is open to suggestion via applications from groups of leading scientists. The applications are decided by the Scientific Advisory Board. The overall topic can come from all areas of mathematics, mathematical economy, and mathematical physics. During the programs one or the other workshop is organized as well as perhaps lecture series or schools. The stays are fully financed by the Institute.

Junior Hausdorff Trimester Program (Junior HTP)

The Institute selects a broad mathematical area and calls for applications of groups of excellent young scientists (Post Docs, Junior Faculty), who want to carry out collaborative research. Individual applications are also allowed but only approved if the Institute can form a small research group from these applicants. The participants can organize small workshops and can take the initiative to invite a senior mathematician with whom they can carry out research together. The stays are fully financed by the Institute.

Research in Groups (RinG)

The idea of this program is to give small groups of at least three people the chance to carry out joint research at the Institute. The intention is to promote new research. We are open to a very flexible use of this program; however, we do not want simply a workshop. Interaction between the members of the group should be central. Duration of the program can be up to three months and not shorter than one month (which in exceptional cases can be divided into two halves). The stays are fully financed by the Institute. The program "Research in Groups" ended in 2016. There is no call for proposals for this program.
