This is a collection of interesting information about the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics.

The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM) is a cluster of excellence at the University of Bonn. It is characterized by a broad thematic map, which reflects the distinctive mathematical competencies in Bonn. Scientists from Germany and abroad are investigating numerous topics of traditional mathematics and mathematical economy at the HCM. Scientists of the HCM provide the mathematical foundations of quantum physics, develop models for economic mechanisms, and enhance our understanding of the processes at the macroscopic level. The results of research at the HCM are for example implemented into the industrial design of computer chips or improve medical diagnosis instruments. The HCM applies highest international standards to the training of young academics and supports early scientific independence actively through grants. The cluster was founded in 2006 and has been approved for a second funding period in 2012. The second period will be running until 2017.
