The Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) is one of the top ranked institutes of the Leibniz Association and conducts project oriented research in applied mathematics with the aim of solving complex problems in technology, science and the economy. The institute addresses the entire scientific solution process, starting with mathematical modeling, followed by the theoretical analysis of models, and ending with the numerical simulation of the solution. Needless to say, involved, long-term contact and trustful cooperation with users from industry and research are essential.
As a universitas litterarum, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU) offers all of the major academic disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, cultural studies, mathematics, the natural sciences, medicine and agricultural sciences. Humboldt-Universität is an excellent research university that delivers top-level achievements in a wide variety of fields in both national and international comparisons. WIAS and HU are also cooperation partners of the Research Center MATHEON “Mathematics for key technologies: Modelling, simulation, and optimisation of real-world processes”. Founded in 2002 as DFG Research Center, MATHEON has been established via a cooperation agreement between the five participating institutions: Freie Universität Berlin (FU), Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin (TU), Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics, and Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB). About 200 scientists including more than 40 professors of mathematics are presently doing research in about 35 MATHEON projects. MATHEON has large experience in organizational aspects and in industrial collaboration.
