Department of Mathematics

Ein Auge auf die mathematische Forschung werfen

Mathematics in Kaiserslautern

Top international research - from theoretical foundations to real industrial applications

Research Profile

With its research focusses in

the Department of Mathematics has prioritized attractive scientific and socially relevant areas. This and its current mathematical proficiency establish a sound basis for being nationally and internationally competitive. There is hardly a place where the modern self-understanding of mathematics is lived and pursued as consistently as in Kaiserslautern:

»Mathematics is not only (indispensable) fundamental science but a (if not the) key technology of the 21st century.«

Felix Klein Center

Most research groups of the faculty closely collaborate with departments of the Fraunhofer ITWM. The well-established networking and inter-institutional research cooperation of the Department of Mathematics and the Fraunhofer ITWM has been documented by the foundation of the Felix Klein Center for Mathematics. Thanks to the combination of the widely recognized and outstanding research programs of the department of mathematics, and the open-to-the-world and practically oriented projects of the Fraunhofer ITWM, the Felix Klein Center will undoubtedly strengthen the position of Kaiserslautern in the field of mathematics.

The option of experiencing mathematics in all its facets - from abstract, purely theoretical basic research to real industrial applications - and in an internationally oriented environment makes Kaiserslautern extremely attractive for talented students as well as scientists from Germany and abroad.

Research Center (CM)²

Researchers from all research units of the Department of Mathematics substantially contribute to the inter-disciplinary research center Center for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (CM)² at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern. This research center aims at upgrading the mathematical modelling of technological and natural scientific processes to an integrated technology for construction and analysis by extending and improving the computer aid (from data handling to efficient implementations and visualization of results) as well as by increasingly including the knowledge and competences of the users.  This is the basis for new simulation-based technological products and for a better understanding of complex processes. At the same time, this collaboration of different disciplines should give stimuli for application-oriented fundamental research in mathematics and for a problem-based networking of the involved research units of the Faculty of Mathematics.

Collaborative Research Center (SFB-TRR 195)

The Collaborative Research Center "Symbolic Tools in Mathematics and its Application" (SFB-TRR 195) of the German Research Foundation (DFG), established in 2017, has set itself the goal of significantly advancing research in the field of computer algebra systems in order to be able to answer fundamental mathematical questions by using these systems.

As part of the SFB-TRR 195, scientists of the Algebra, Geometry and Computer Algebra group (AGAG) cooperate with research groups at RWTH Aachen University, Saarland University, and TU Berlin as well as at the Universities of Siegen, Stuttgart and Tübingen.
